Cylera, a global leader in healthcare IoT asset intelligence and security, has strategically partnered with Integra e-Quip, a leading provider of Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), to streamline cybersecurity protection and asset management solutions for Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and IoT environments in healthcare organisations.
The partnership will bring interconnected hospital and healthcare environments a fully integrated asset management and centralised cybersecurity system for continuous visibility with granular device data, accurate risk profiling, comprehensive inventory, and extensive threat mitigation.
Steve Brigden, head of UK & Ireland at Cylera, said: “We’re excited to partner with Integra e-Quip to bring a unique and highly automated combination of CMMS and IoT security to the UK healthcare sector.
“Through our joint efforts, the hundreds of healthcare providers we both currently support will be able to use our solutions together to actively oversee their connected medical devices, spot potential risks, and implement preventions to support the safety of patients.
“Together, we’re transforming the approach to IoT security in the field of healthcare, making proactive defence possible.”
The integrated approach using passive vulnerability detection technologies avoids risking device uptime or clinical continuity, while achieving accurate risk analysis of their connected medical devices to reduce the time and resources needed to maintain secure and compliant care delivery.
Dal Jdali, chief executive officer at Integra e-Quip, added: “For over 10 years, Integra e-Quip has been working with many of the UK’s largest NHS trusts and we’ve remained committed to equipping healthcare organisations with cutting-edge and effective CMMS systems ever since.
“Our collaboration with Cylera underscores our dedication to supplying top-tier solutions for device management, vendor monitoring, and preventative maintenance. By incorporating IoT security from Cylera into our services, we are empowering our customers to reach unprecedented heights in operational performance and protection.”
Cylera has a strong presence within the NHS, backed up by its three-year agreement with Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust in September last year.
