Ranked among the highest in the Customer Impact category and listed overall as one of the top global providers in connected medical device security, the report described how Cylera’s IoT intelligence and security platform can readily discover, categorise, inventory, risk assess and monitor a diverse and large volume of healthcare IoT and connected medical devices, with ‘an unmatched depth of visibility  and accuracy.’ At least 15% greater IoMT coverage delivered right out of the box compared to other vendors, cited one customer.

The Quadrant Knowledge Solutions report provides a detailed analysis of the global connected medical device security solutions industry, including market dynamics, major trends, vendor landscape, and competitive positioning, ranking the leading connected medical device security solution vendors in the form of a SPARK Matrix. The study provides strategic information for healthcare delivery organisations (HDOs) to evaluate different vendor capabilities and competitive differentiation.

Customers surveyed, as part of the analysis process by the advisory firm, expect continued growth in their IoT and IoMT assets with many concerned around managing attacks, as well as operational, privacy, and reputation risks. This follows recent data by KnowBe4, confirming healthcare as the third most frequently targeted group by cybercriminals, with a 74% increase in 2022 compared to the year before.

Cylera was noted by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions for its scalable and extensible SaaS-based platform supporting hospitals with 150 or more beds, and larger networks that manage over a dozen hospitals and more than 250 different facilities across multiple regions and countries. Rated best overall for its customer experience, the platform was also commended for its ease of use and deployment.

Mohnish Rathore, analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, said: “Cylera has been placed among the market leaders owing to factors such as comprehensive healthcare IoT security technology for continuous IoMT visibility, high-fidelity intelligence, risk scoring with prioritisation, and integrated threat mitigation.”

“Beyond the ease, flexibility, and depth of functionality of its platform, users expressed Cylera’s rapid time-to-value and outcome-based, partnership approach to healthcare customer success, setting Cylera apart from its competitors. Owing to the company’s platform capabilities and customer impact, Cylera has been positioned among the leaders to be considered by healthcare delivery organisations in 2023,” continued Mohnish.
