PARAMUS, N.J., May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvolo today announced the general availability of its integrated operating technology cybersecurity platform with Asimily Insight. The joint solution delivers auto-discovery capabilities that automate the challenging process of creating and maintaining a single, trusted medical device inventory. The integrated platform provides the ability to baseline medical device signatures on the network for identification and classification along with new, modern capabilities to prioritize at-risk devices and within it the most critical vulnerabilities. The platform also provides the ability to segment devices and block them on the network.  Nuvolo and Asimily also provide non-invasive monitoring for real-time threat detection and a system of action for HTM and security operations teams to work together for rapid remediation of known vulnerabilities and threats.  The bi-directional integration enriches Asimily’s machine learning and AI capabilities using rich contextual medical device data. Nuvolo benefits from real-time security incident information to drive the cyber security remediation workflow. 

“Our customers can rely on the platform’s capabilities to deliver critical operating technology cyber security capabilities to identify, prioritize and protect their devices and other important operational insights into their clinical infrastructure.  We are committed to keeping the medical device fleet safe and optimally utilized to ensure better patient outcomes,” said Shankar Somasundaram, Co-Founder and CEO, Asimily. “Our integration with Nuvolo empowers our customers to turn insight from the platform into action by enabling the healthcare system to instantly react to and remediate security threats targeting their medical device fleet.”

The threat of cyberattacks against medical devices is a massive and exponentially increasing risk for healthcare systems. Gartner estimates that the number of medical devices that will need to be “hardened” by healthcare providers will increase 45% by 2020.1 In the absence of a solution like this, healthcare providers will need to cobble together a patchwork of tools and manual processes comprising multiple and disparate systems-of-record, naming convention mismatches that will introduce friction and risk to their ability to effectively combat cyber threats.

“We believe operating technology cyber security represents a clear and present danger for healthcare providers.  The key to risk mitigation is a modern, cloud-based platform offering a holistic approach that addresses all facets of the problem including inventory, onboarding, monitoring, correlation and remediation,” said Tom Stanford, CEO, Nuvolo. “Our integration with Asimily provides full cyber security life cycle capabilities that deliver on the promise of keeping medical devices safe, protecting patients and shielding the healthcare system from the liabilities and exposures resulting from a cyber security exploit.”
