Additional Capabilities Added to Help Identify and Respond to the Increasing Volume and Severity of Security Alerts
Austin, TX —March 27, 2019 – CynergisTek, Inc., (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in healthcare cybersecurity, privacy, and compliance, today announced that it has added a new suite of Managed Security Services to its portfolio to assist organizations with monitoring, threat detection, incident response, and management of ongoing cybersecurity risks.
This new service will add proactive and comprehensive security monitoring of network devices, endpoints, and cloud and SaaS based environments such as Office 365, Okta, and Salesforce. Leveraging extensive healthcare industry knowledge, CynergisTek will tailor this service line to address the unique concerns and lack of security resources in healthcare, as well as provide visibility to threats in near real time. Managing all of the security technologies deployed in the average enterprise has become a daunting task for many and staying ahead of the threat actors by a wide enough margin to mitigate their impacts is considerably harder.
“Healthcare clients have expressed frustration with the fact that they don’t have adequate threat monitoring or the appropriate level of attention they need from their managed service provider,” said Mac McMillan, CEO of CynergisTek. “Service providers tend to be industry agnostic, target larger companies, and don’t have the experience or know how to tailor their support for healthcare. Many organizations still struggle with managing risk because they can’t optimize all of the security tools or simply don’t have the resources to monitor their outputs. Adding this service to our portfolio significantly enhances our ability to assist our clients with this challenge by providing real time 24/7 monitoring in support of their program.”
“We have developed multiple services as a trusted healthcare partner, so this was just a natural extension of our desire to help our clients identify and manage their security risks more effectively,” said Angela Rivera, EVP of Operations of CynergisTek. “We are especially excited to be able to provide an affordable alternative for the small and mid-market healthcare organizations who often cannot take advantage of this type of support for various reasons.”
