Minnesota-based IoT security company Great Bay Software has announced a relationship with Crowe Horwath, a Illinois consulting firm in cyber security and risk management services, to brings a multi-dimensional approach to solving cyber-security problems for healthcare while embracing connected technology.
Crowe's cyber-security and risk management professionals work with organisations to assess their cyber-security risks, outline their governance, risk and compliance requirements, and implement security measures.
Great Bay Software's Beacon product suite provides enterprise-grade device discovery, visibility and control technology tools to monitor cyber threats in real time. Beacon's artificial intelligence expert system-based engine collects and correlates information from dozens of data sources and, as a result, discovers every device – smart and unmanaged – within seconds of connecting to the network.
Together, the Crowe and Great Bay collaboration provides a comprehensive approach to mitigating the cyber risks and operational challenges associated with IoT adoption. Endpoint visibility and enforcement are combined with governance and risk management frameworks to deliver a seamless approach to network security and operational efficiency.
"Great Bay is extremely excited to work with Crowe Horwath," said Jim Scullion, CEO at Great Bay Software. "They have an impressive track record of guiding healthcare organisations through the process of implementing the security foundation necessary to protect patient data. We're thrilled to be working with them to help organisations secure data, preserve patient trust and protect the growth of their organisations."
Raj Chaudhary, Crowe principal, added: "Great Bay's software is a great fit for Crowe's deep specialisation and continued expansion in global cyber security. We're looking forward to working together to provide a comprehensive approach to helping clients mitigate cyber risks."
