The U.S. healthcare industry is a top target for data breaches, to the tune of $6.2 billion a year. According to the Ponemon Institute, nearly 90 percent of healthcare organizations represented in a recent study had a data breach in the past two years, and nearly half had more than five data breaches in the same time period. Beyond the financial risk, there are also significant threats to patient privacy and trust. For this reason, healthcare providers face an increasing number of government mandates to protect against breaches, some of which bring costly fines for non-compliance.
Axiad IDS, the leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, government and financial organizations, is helping healthcare organizations manage the complexity of these mandates. In particular, section 3.5 of NIST SP800-171 which demands a multi-factor solution for identification and authentication.

Founded in 2014, Cymmetria is a cyber deception startup focused on changing the asymmetry of cybersecurity, tilting the traditional security odds so that hackers are the ones who are left vulnerable. Cymmetria’s cyber deception solution, MazeRunner, is at the forefront of deception-based cybersecurity technology.
MazeRunner gives organizations a platform for creating effective deception stories, which create realistic environments for hunting cyber attackers. Deception stories are comprised of breadcrumbs and decoys; they lead attackers to believe that they have successfully gained access to a target machine. Having gained a false sense of security, attackers reveal their attack tools and methods, which defenders are then able to document and analyze. Finally, MazeRunner communicates with an organization’s existing defense infrastructure, exporting information that allows for the creation of attack signatures.
Fully customizable and easily deployed, MazeRunner does not burden organizational networks or IT security teams. It is a dynamic solution that helps organizations defend their valuable assets from ever-changing cyber threats.
Cymmetria’s team consists of cyber deception and InfoSec veterans, military specialists, and APT and malware researchers. The company is backed by leading investors such as Y Combinator and Sherpa Capital, and has already gained traction throughout the InfoSec community and global media.
