Ordr, a specialist in security for enterprise IoT and unmanaged devices, has been awarded a contract to provide its services for the University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (UHS).

UHS, in partnership with reseller SmartGate Group, has deployed Ordr’s systems Control Engine (SCE), which discovers and secures every connected device, including Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), Internet of Things (IoT) and Operational Technologies (OT).

UHS required a solution that protected against potential cyber threats and cyber criminals looking to ransom or steal valuable data, including patient information. Ordr SCE discovers every connected device, profiles device behaviours and risks, and automates response.

Ordr not only identifies devices with vulnerabilities, weak ciphers, weak certificates, and active threats, but also those that exhibit malicious or suspicious behaviours.

Darran Lebas, network and IT security manager at UHS, said: “We liked the simplicity of the Ordr solution coupled with its forensic level of insight.

“It’s very intuitive and quick to install, even on a network of this size, and instantly started to catalogue and risk profile every single device on our network.

“The way it automatically classifies and then baselines the communications of all our devices is very impressive.”

Bob Vickers, head of UK&I at Ordr, added: “The opportunity to partner with UHS has been fantastic, especially with such a forward-thinking IT team looking to take the Trust forward. It is another example of how our solution addresses the challenges faced by healthcare organisations.

“UHS, like so many other hyperconnected organisations, sees our solution as being key in their quest to ensure the ongoing cyber security of their connected devices.”
