Pondurance Named “Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Solution” In 2022 MedTech Breakthrough Awards Program
Annual Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Health and Medical Technology Products and Companies
INDIANAPOLIS – May 5, 2022:
Pondurance, a leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, today announced that it has been selected as “Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Solution” in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market.
Healthcare leaders face many challenges when it comes to protecting healthcare technology and securing protected health information (PHI) from cyber threats. Ransomware, in particular, has become a multi-billion-dollar issue in healthcare, as it can slow or shut down healthcare services altogether, impacting patient outcomes, revenues and cyber insurance premiums. The lack of cybersecurity talent, reliance on Internet of Things (IoT) medical devices and vulnerable legacy systems also contribute to making healthcare organizations a prime target for attackers.
Pondurance has years of experience supporting the cybersecurity and compliance needs of healthcare organizations. The company’s Managed Detection and Response and Incident Response services provide proactive 24/7 protection backed by authentic human intelligence and leading cybersecurity technologies with a track record of helping healthcare providers fully recover from major cyberattacks in as little as 72 hours.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from MedTech Breakthrough. Aligning cybersecurity and patient safety initiatives is not only necessary to protect patient privacy, it also ensures no disruption or negative impact on clinical outcomes and delivery of high-quality healthcare,” said Doug Howard, CEO of Pondurance. “When every minute counts, the Pondurance team can investigate and contain an incident, determine exposure through forensic analysis and help restore healthcare operations. Working with Pondurance, healthcare providers can enhance their cybersecurity posture, improve HIPAA compliance and protect patient data.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“Cloud-based solutions, the growing use of connected medical devices and susceptible legacy IT infrastructure make cyberattack surfaces larger than ever for healthcare organizations. The healthcare industry is turning to MDR services to protect networks, endpoints, connected devices and cloud environments through real-time monitoring, detection and response,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “With experience across hundreds of healthcare organizations, Pondurance delivers ‘breakthrough’ MDR and incident response services to guide them every step of the way. We are thrilled to recognize Pondurance as our choice for ‘Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Solution’ in 2022.”
