Nuvolo and First Health Advisory announced an industry-first suite of operational Nuvolo and First Health Advisory launched an industry-first suite of operational technology (OT) security risk management services to secure network-connected medical and facilities systems.

External cyberattacks are increasingly targeting network-connected medical equipment (OT) as well as facilities systems including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) controllers. This partnership addresses these security issues by merging First Health Advisory’s comprehensive OT security mitigation services with Nuvolo’s OT security orchestration and automated response (SOAR). This innovative new product integrates Nuvolo’s single, trusted medical and facilities device inventory system and common data model with industry-leading OT security monitoring and discovery tools.

“Our strategic partnership with Nuvolo is an important step forward in meeting the OT security needs of the healthcare community we serve. By combining the capabilities of Nuvolo with First Health’s OT security risk management services, we will address crucial resource gaps and deliver on our mission to serve the security, privacy and OT orchestration needs of our clients,” said Carter Groome, CEO, First Health Advisory.  

The merged risk management services and Nuvolo solution capabilities will minimise HTM teams’ workloads, provide stakeholders with up-to-date statuses, assist and assure that OT devices are maintained safe, accessible, and available at all times.

“Protection of operational technology (OT), including network connected medical and facilities devices, is mandatory for healthcare providers, OEMs and independent service organizations (ISOs).   With a growing and pervasive cyber threat, OT security is now a prerequisite for ensuring patient and environmental safety. For the first time, mature solutions are available to deliver OT device discovery together with security orchestration and automated response (SOAR), coupled with expert resources to deliver on remediation and risk mitigation.   Nuvolo, in partnership with First Health Advisory (FHA) can deliver expert visibility, advise, planning and remediation for OT security, on demand.   This important partnership is a core tenant of our go-to-market strategy for OT security globally.  We are excited to lead the market with FHA, serve the community and help address a growing cyber security threat facing our healthcare customers,” said Tom Stanford, CEO of Nuvolo.
