The pandemic has accelerated the digital shift in many industries and healthcare has been a primary beneficiary. While the rise in telehealth comes top of mind, there have been a number of innovative IoT technologies that have been deployed during the pandemic to keep patients safer and care continuously like remote tracking of insulin levels and pacemakers or non-surgical robotics used for contactless disinfection. This has led to an increase in the number of connected devices being deployed in the field and ultimately these devices need to be secure. Cylera is a comprehensive cybersecurity and intelligent platform focused on IoT in the healthcare industry. The company focuses on asset management, risk analysis, and threat detection so that healthcare organizations can be safeguarded against any vulnerabilities as the adoption of devices increases.
