The capabilities of the Sensato Cybersecurity-as-a-Service suite will further enhance customers’ ability to deter, prevent, and mitigate these evolving cyber threats.

What is the CloudWave Sensato Cybersecurity-as-a-Service platform?

The CloudWave Sensato Cybersecurity-as-a-Service platform is a proprietary custom-built cybersecurity platform that combines components of commercially available software with bespoke software, integration, and configuration system. The combination of the CTOC and the ability for customization creates a platform to meet the specific needs of the healthcare environment at a price point that is viable for small and mid-sized hospitals and health systems.

The CloudWave Sensato Cybersecurity-as-a-Service platform provides capabilities found in commercial VTM, SIEM, and SOAR products, as well as the advanced detection capabilities seen in an XDR product. It utilizes proprietary HIDS and NIDS to monitor networks at an enterprise level to detect cyber threats. In addition, it utilizes custom-built honeypot technology to identify malevolent actors that have gained access to a hospital’s system. Finally, it is designed to extend the security environment to include internet-enabled and vulnerable medical devices.

Will CloudWave offer security services in addition to its Managed Security Services?

Yes, just as Sensato does currently, CloudWave will continue to offer project-based security services such as Risk Assessments (NIST, HIPAA, or C2M2), Tabletop Exercises, and Pen Testing.
