Hospital Cybersecurity Solutions
Small and rural hospitals are highly vulnerable to cybercriminals who view them as ideal testing grounds for attack strategies. After exploiting the smaller hospitals, criminals leverage their acquired knowledge to infiltrate larger hospitals and healthcare networks.Because hospitals are highly regulated and have unique needs, your cybersecurity vendor should have specific expertise in the healthcare setting, including a deep understanding of HIPAA regulations. They should also have proven solutions to protect connected peripheral medical devices, and understand the 24/7 setting of your hospital. Typical vendors may provide a 24/7 security operations center, penetration testing, risk assessments, incident response, and tabletop simulations.

Sensato Cybersecurity is now part of CloudWave. The Sensato solutions take a holistic approach to cybersecurity by helping healthcare organizations comply, detect, and respond to cybersecurity risks and threats, providing solutions designed specifically for the unique challenges of healthcare information technology.
The partnership with CloudWave brings together leading-edge cloud hosting services and managed Cybersecurity-as-a-Service to provide healthcare organizations with a seamless, enhanced experience. Their programs, solutions, services, training, and intelligence gathering are the product of working with hundreds of hospitals to uncover cybersecurity gaps and challenges.
CloudWave’s Sensato Cybersecurity-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution is a fully integrated cybersecurity platform. CaaS provides real-time packet-level monitoring of network traffic, host intrusion detection, and asset fingerprinting. The solution includes a compliance and incident response module for healthcare infrastructure, including patient-attached medical devices and IoT devices. The CloudWave U.S. based Cybersecurity Tactical Operations Center (CTOC) embraces a unique tactical approach, including 24×7 “eyes on glass” monitoring. The CTOC includes an incident response center and the first clinical cybersecurity rapid incident response program designed for medical device attacks.
CloudWave is an Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) and has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the FDA and H-ISAC, meaning that the FDA consults with the Sensato cybersecurity team about medical device vulnerabilities.
Healthcare partner organizations also benefit from leveraging vulnerability assessments, best practices, risk management, and cybersecurity maturity modeling to maintain compliance.
