CloudWave, a provider in healthcare data security, has acquired Sensato Cybersecurity, a managed cybersecurity services company focused on protecting healthcare providers from ransomware events and other cybersecurity threats.

Sensato developed a fully integrated Cybersecurity-as-a-Service platform (CaaS) that features a solution stack to provide real-time network monitoring, intrusion detection, and asset fingerprinting along with a security operations center designed specifically for healthcare infrastructure and connected devices. It will be available immediately as part of CloudWave’s new Sensato Cybersecurity suite.

As healthcare organizations are increasingly being targeted by cybercriminals, CloudWave’s Sensato Cybersecurity suite aims to provide a level of security unique in the industry. It combines the ability to comply with best practices and regulations, detect threats, and respond to cybersecurity incidents in a fully integrated and easy to deploy holistic platform.

The Sensato Cybersecurity suite fits in with CloudWave’s OpSus Cloud Services. It aims to enable hospitals to implement a fully managed cybersecurity program, resulting in full HIPAA and NIST compliance, with end-to-end service and support from a single provider. The company’s Cybersecurity Tactical Operations Center (CTOC), a next generation SOC, employs a unique tactical approach to cybersecurity with continuous monitoring by cybersecurity analysts, while also incorporating machine learning.

“As a managed cloud service provider to hundreds of hospitals, CloudWave has witnessed how devastating a cyber event can be to healthcare organizations. Unfortunately, the frequency of these attacks continues to rise—an increasing number of customers have called upon CloudWave for rapid response services to help halt and remediate cyberattacks on their on-premises systems in just the last two years,” says Erik Littlejohn, president and CEO of CloudWave. “With the addition of the innovative, proprietary technologies included in the Sensato Cybersecurity suite, along with the cyber expertise of the Sensato team, CloudWave will be able to offer customers the high-level cybersecurity we provide for our cloud-based delivery to on-premises systems.”

Sensato was founded by long-time health information technology visionary John Gomez, who will also now join CloudWave as chief security and engineering officer.
