CloudWave Offering Managed Security Services for Healthcare

CloudWave’s OpSus Defend is designed to meet the specific security and compliance requirements of hospitals and healthcare organizations.

Marlborough, MA, February 16, 2017 --( CloudWave announced the release of OpSus Defend, a set of managed security services available from their OpSus Healthcare Cloud. OpSus Defend offers HIPAA Risk Analysis, Security Information and Event monitoring, Penetration Testing, Data Loss Prevention, and Vulnerability Threat Management, all available as modular, managed services. By offering traditional, one-time engagements as managed services, OpSus Defend shifts the economics to be more affordable and improves the quality of the workflow. Instead of a one-time fix, security as a service includes continuous monitoring, frequent communication, and an evolving security defense.

CloudWave delivers these services via the OpSus Cloud to help hospitals build and manage strong security programs and meet compliance goals. Using proven technology and processes, OpSus Defend is powered by Fortified Health Security and its team of security professionals dedicated to protecting healthcare data, systems, and networks. OpSus Defend provides experienced resources and ongoing monitoring to drive continuous improvement to a hospital’s security posture. By identifying risks and implementing measures to prevent breaches, healthcare organizations can better meet state and federal regulations to achieve compliance.

“We are pleased to partner with Fortified Health Security to bring a healthcare-specific security as a service offering to hospitals,” says Jim Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President at CloudWave. “Hospitals need a way to meet the ever-evolving security threats to patient data, and often don’t have the resources and skills on staff to not only protect systems, but implement safeguards to achieve compliance with HITECH and HIPAA. The combined teams at CloudWave and Fortified provide the leading-edge technical and cybersecurity expertise necessary to help our customers build a strong security stance.”
