  • Numerous waves of malicious attacks on hospital have been successfully blocked by Sasa Software's cyber security solutions for the healthcare industry, which will be presented at HIMSS 2017.

    EAST HANOVER, New Jersey, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Assuta Medical Centers, Israel's largest private medical services provider, which has successfully been using advanced cyber security solutions developed by leading cyber security vendor Sasa Software to protect patient data from cyber threats, has blocked numerous crypto ransomware attacks.

    In June 2016, Assuta Medical Centers installed Sasa Software's Gate Scanner suite of products, which disarms incoming files, imaging results and emails, protecting against unknown and undetectable threats.

    Assuta Medical Centers installed the following Gate Scanner solutions:

    "In recent months, we have been the target of several ransomware attacks, including the notorious 'Locky' strain," said Assuta Medical Center's Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Tamir Ronen. "Fortunately, Gate Scanner prevented these attacks, protecting us from being exposed to system downtime and data breaches. With Sasa Software's solutions we feel much more secured even from unknown and undetectable malicious attacks."

    Sasa Software will present its innovative solutions for the healthcare industry at the Cyber Security Command Center of the 2017 HIMSS Conference in Orlando, Florida, February 19-23, at booth #376-25.

    "Assuta Medical Center's positive experience illustrates the fact that hospitals and other healthcare organizations can protect themselves against sophisticated and highly targeted attacks and prevent the loss of sensitive medical information," said Yakov Yeroslav, Sasa Software's founder and CEO.

    An extensive report by the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology (ICIT) indicates that healthcare is the most targeted yet underprepared genre within the nation's critical infrastructures - 75 percent of organizations experience IT security incidents, with healthcare as a whole being four times more likely to be hit than any other industry.

    "By installing our solutions, these institutions can benefit from the highest level of security available," Yeroslav added.

    Following a comprehensive evaluation process of other technologies, Assuta selected Sasa Software due to the high level of security it offers as well as usability, ability to scale and integrate with other security solutions used by the hospital.

    "Attackers are looking for the easiest way in, using trusted content channels (email, web, detachable media) to gain access to networks, targeting organizations with uniquely created attacks. We have successfully protected Assuta and other customers from these threats," Yeroslav concluded.

  • As origionally appeard on Profo Media, by Richard Bloss:

    Cyber Attacks on Hospitals. Time to take this seriously.

    We talk with Sasa Software’s Oren Dvoskin about why 2017 will be, reluctantly, their best year. 

    The image of Oren Dvoskin, Commercial Manager of the Americas at Sasa Software, sitting in his nondescript office, black t-shirt and headphones, looks Californian, as he spells out the pessimism of his profession.

    “There are two types of hospitals” – he says; “those that have been hacked and know it; and those that have been hacked, but don’t know it.”

    Oren’s office is nowhere near Orange County. It is on the border of Israel and Lebanon. If anyone knows about security, it is he. As he continues.. “Israel is under unique constraints. We live in a volatile region, with State and non-State hackers ceaselessly attempting to undermine our infrastructures, in addition to increasing rates of Cyber Crime attacks. We don’t compromise on security, but as everyone, want to live normal lives, and can’t have business interrupted.”

    As Sasa Software prepare to face its growing and exponential market at HIMSS 2017 – it surely does not get any more black than this.

    Cyber hacking, data breaches and ransomware, is growing to the point where it cannot be ignored and assumed it is for someone else. But its growth is not the most alarming feature. It is that, for hospitals, any cyber-attack would have to be pre-meditated and unique and specifically tailored to find the weak spot, the easiest point of entry, into that particular hospital.

    What is worse is – because health records (which are the prime target) are deeply personal and full of personal ID info – any attack is inevitably immediately visible and damaging. Unlike say a Bank etc, a Hospital must report breaches to the authorities, they cannot pretend it has not happened and just pay the money.

    This is no simple phishing attack.

    What that means is, and why Sasa Software believe that this 2017 will be our most “challenging”, i.e. most concerted and worrying year – is that Hospitals are still not waking up to this important threat, despite the evidence that 75% have suffered some sort of hacking incident – and that is just those that are publicly noted.

    The answer, according to Oren – is to have a mix of baseline protection, the sort that all of us have on our PCs and office servers and Cloud access. This stops the initial and simplest attacks. But to combat the precise and targeted attack mentioned above, Sasa takes the view that every incoming email, data request, every file transfer – is a threat of some sort. Their Gate Scanner range of solutions is designed to neutralize any incoming file, malware or suspicious entry, at source – an approach known as deep content disarm and reconstruction.

    But it is also a realization that files we take for granted – the DICOM images, the voice recording – that we regularly append to our EHR records, are the new source of threat. Viewing images online across the globe, that holy grail of Clinical Consultant interoperability – may be the one area that is the Achilles heel for the modern Hospital. Attackers try to enter through the organization’s trusted and legitimate content channels. Their Gate Scanner DICOM Protector is designed to prevent these targeted attacks.

    If there is a light at the end of the tunnel, it is not in the fingers crossed hope that that things can get better. It is the realization that you can do something about it. Oren is a philosopher with a positive view of human nature, despite the nature of his profession and the market he develops, “In this world of zero trust, we believe healthcare information can be protected with innovative technologies”.

    The cost of your sorting out a healthcare data breach is alarming, at $401 per patient record, over 50% more than a breached financial record. A risk healthcare organizations just can’t continue to ignore. Sasa Software will be addressing both the Pharma and Clinical markets at HIMSS. Worth having a serious chat.
