CyberMDX, a healthcare cybersecurity provider delivering visibility and threat prevention for medical devices, IoT, and clinical networks, and Sham (Relyens Group),  largest insurance and risk management provider for healthcare, have announced a partnership to enhance the delivery of proactive risk management.

The partnership will introduce CyberMDX’s visibility and cybersecurity capabilities to Sham’s offering to create an end-to-end risk management solution for healthcare. This combined offering will provide a means for organizations to centrally asses and efficiently manage their risks across all business dimensions. 

“Data analysis, the use of artificial intelligence tools, and technological progress now offer the possibility of reducing or even avoiding the risks linked to the activity of healthcare players and regions,” says Relyens Group CEO Dominique Godet. “We are looking beyond financial coverage to help hospitals ensure operational continuity and secure their vital medical devices and network infrastructure.”

Cybersecurity is fast becoming a business requirement in this hyper-connected age; even more so when it comes to healthcare where the quality and continuity of care depends on increasingly at risk connected medical devices. “We chose to partner with CyberMDX because of their superior technology and proven market maturity—their solution being deployed and relied upon across hundreds of medical facilities globally,” Godet says.

Partnering with CyberMDX, Sham has taken the next step in expanding its healthcare offering from risk management solutions focused on the day after (e.g., insurance) to more holistic solutions addressing the day prior (e.g., security, resilience, and optimization).

“Together with Sham, we approach the risks and opportunities facing healthcare organizations from a wide lens,” CyberMDX CEO Amir Magner. “Building a synergetic value proposition with Sham’s existing services and expertise, our goal is not only to protect hospital assets from attack, but to add operational value and risk management capabilities to benefit the whole healthcare organization.”
