Network-connected medical devices (OT) — along with facilities systems like heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) controls—are increasingly at risk for external cybersecurity attacks. This partnership addresses these security threats by combining comprehensive OT security mitigation services provided by First Health Advisory with OT security orchestration and automated response (SOAR) from Nuvolo. This exciting new offering leverages industry-leading OT security monitoring and discovery tools, natively integrated with Nuvolo’s single, trusted medical and facilities device inventory system and common data model.

The newly combined risk management services and Nuvolo solution capabilities will reduce the workloads of HTM teams, deliver up-to-the-minute statuses for stakeholders, and help ensure that OT devices and kept safe, accessible and available at all times.

“Protection of operational technology (OT), including network connected medical and facilities devices, is mandatory for healthcare providers, OEMs and independent service organizations (ISOs).   With a growing and pervasive cyber threat, OT security is now a prerequisite for ensuring patient and environmental safety,” said Tom Stanford, CEO of Nuvolo.

“For the first time, mature solutions are available to deliver OT device discovery together with security orchestration and automated response (SOAR), coupled with expert resources to deliver on remediation and risk mitigation.   Nuvolo, in partnership with First Health Advisory (FHA) can deliver expert visibility, advice, planning, and remediation for OT security, on-demand.   This important partnership is a core tenant of our go-to-market strategy for OT security globally.  We are excited to lead the market with FHA, serve the community and help address a growing cyber security threat facing our healthcare customers.”
