    High Wire offers its Overwatch managed security services exclusively through a global network of managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security service providers (MSSPs) totaling more than 625 worldwide.

    Reflecting High Wire’s preferred “go-to” status for these global channel partners, many of which comprise the Fortune 500, Frost & Sullivan ranks High Wire as a Top 12 Managed Security Service Provider in the Americas in the categories of growth and innovation.

    This new win supports High Wire’s pursuit of many similar opportunities in its pipeline, and as its channel partners continue to look to High Wire to help meet the growing demand for effective cybersecurity tools and managed services.

    Security breaches and ransomware attacks on healthcare systems are on the rise. CRN recently reported that a ransomware attack paralyzed Ascension health system, shutting down its electronic health records system and forcing it to divert emergency care at some of its hospitals.

    Earlier this year, CRN reported that a cyberattack targeting a unit within UnitedHealth Group subsidiary Optum caused significant disruptions for U.S. pharmacies and patients. UnitedHealth paid a $22 million ransom and acknowledged the attack was facilitated by the lack of multifactor authentication on a server operated by Change Healthcare, an Optum prescription processor.

    Security breaches and ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure is costing organizations millions of dollars to remediate. According to a recent report from IBM, the average cost of a business data breach in the U.S. totals on average ~$9.5 million. Healthcare continued to experience the highest data breach costs of all industries, increasing 8.2% to $10.93 million. However, organizations with extensive use of security AI and automation have been shown to save on average ~$1.8 million with fully deployed security automation.

    “The rise in cyberattacks in healthcare is particularly concerning, given the critical nature of its services,” added High Wire CEO, Mark Porter. “Many critical infrastructure organizations have yet to deploy a zero-trust architecture on their network. For tackling the escalating threats and potential cost burdens that can be mitigated, our Overwatch solutions offer our channel partners the best security solutions for their end clients. Looking ahead, we anticipate encountering similar opportunities for other healthcare organizations.”
