Medical Device Security Startup Launches

Cynerio lands multi-million dollar funding round.

A new startup officially launched in the medical device security sector today and announced multi-million dollar funding rounds from Elron and Accelmed.

Cynerio - co-founded by Leon Lerman, CEO, formerly with RSA Security and Israel's 8200 unit, and Daniel Brodie, CTO - offers a platform that provides visibility into medical device behavior on the network to detect and halt nefarious activity.

"For attackers, medical devices are easy targets, as the devices aren't built with security in mind and healthcare security teams have limited ability to protect these devices with traditional IT security solutions that are more focused on standard platforms," Lerman said in a statement. "Our technology offers a comprehensive solution, purposely built to protect the medical device ecosystem and their sensitive data."

Amichai Shulman, co-founder and former CTO of Imperva, serves as an advisor to the company. Specifics on Cynerio's funding round were not made public.
