Information technology provider Rolta Advizex and New York firm Cynerio are working together to deliver IoT cyber security to North American healthcare organisations.
 
Ohio-based Rolta Advizex provides expert services from a team of more than 2500 IT specialists. Cynerio helps ensure healthcare organisations' patient safety, data protection, service continuity and reputation by protecting the hospitals' most vulnerable link – the connected medical devices and healthcare IoT.
 
"With the growing number of cyber attacks that threaten patient data and safety, the vulnerability of connected devices is becoming a key concern for healthcare management," said Steve Kucker, vice president with Rolta Advizex. "We are proud to represent Cynerio's technology to provide healthcare organisations with the confidence that their patient's safety and data are fully protected."
 
The hope is that the combined forces of technology from Cynerio and the expertise and footprint from Rolta Advizex will result in a best-of-breed offering to the healthcare market, allowing organisations to reduce costs, improve patient experience and increase population health through innovations.
 
The two companies intend to announce a joint offering tailor-made for the healthcare industry.
 
"We are gratified to join forces with Rolta Advizex, one of the top IT consulting firms in North America," said Leon Lerman, Cynerio CEO. "With over a dozen closed deals with leading hospitals since we opened our New York office in January, Rolta Advizex's robust network of healthcare cyber-security experts will enable us to reach and serve a wider range of customers. We continue to leverage our strategic partnership with Tech Data and work with its premium partners."
 
Steve Unger, senior healthcare manager in North America for Tech Data, added: "Tech Data is focused on helping our vendor's team with our resellers to deliver innovations to their customers. We are excited to see Cynerio partner with Rolta Advizex to deliver cutting edge cyber security, enabling hospitals to secure their biomedical devices and clinical ecosystem."
 
Designed with medical context and business impact in mind, Cynerio's cloud-based technology applies machine learning to provide actionable intelligence for protecting medical and IoT devices. Using automated device discovery, communications profiling and continuous risk assessment, the platform enables prioritised risk mitigation to ensure patient safety, data confidentiality and business continuity.
