Cybersecurity Software in Healthcare and Life Sciences
The healthcare industry comprises companies which generate and commercialize healthcare goods and services. The industry comprises medical equipment and pharmaceutical manufacturers, health insurance firms, private and public healthcare organizations, and providers of diagnostic, preventive, remedial, and therapeutic services. The organizations in the industry hold highly sensitive data related to PHI, PII, and PCI. This data usually remains unprotected and is sometimes not even encrypted, moving through the databases of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and transmitted among hospitals, clinics, and laboratories. Cybercriminals target these organizations for PHI, PII, and credit card information. As a result, the adoption of cybersecurity solutions in this industry is high, as they prevent sensitive information from being transferred through vulnerable networks and help organizations comply with HIPAA and PCI DSS regulations. Stealing financial data has always been the primary target of cyber-attackers, although medical data is also becoming one of their major targets, of late. Healthcare organizations face several challenges such as maintaining the privacy of Electronic Health Record (EHR) and meeting various compliances set by HIPAA. Moreover, due to highly proliferated digital medical devices, network management has become essential to protect these devices from malicious attacks. SSNs, insurance IDs, addresses, credit card information, and medical details are at the risk of being stolen through cyber-attacks. Hence, the healthcare industry is expected to hold a significant share of the cybersecurity market, by industry vertical, over the coming years.
COMPETITIVE LEADERSHIP MAPPING TERMINOLOGY
21 companies offering Cybersecurity Software in Healthcare and Life Sciences were analyzed, shortlisted and categorized on a quadrant under Visionary Leaders, Innovators, Dynamic Differentiators, and Emerging Companies.
IBM, Cisco, HPE, Trend Mirco, and Symantec have been identified as visionary leaders as they have established product portfolios and a robust market presence and business strategy.
Check Point Software, Rapid7, Dell, Optiv, FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, Juniper Networks, and Sophos have been identified as innovators as these vendors have a very focused product portfolio. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business.
F-Secure, Webroot and Proofpoint have been identified as emerging companies. They do not have very strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants and require some more time before gaining significant traction in the market. Trustwave Holdings and Cyberark have been recognized as dynamic differentiators.
Vendor evaluations are based on two broad categories: product offering and business strategy. Each category carries various criteria, based on which vendors have been evaluated. The evaluation criteria considered under product offerings include breadth of offering, delivery, features/functionality, product quality and reliability, and product differentiation. The evaluation criteria considered under business strategy include geographic footprint (on the basis of geographic presence), channel strategy and fit, vision alignment, and effectiveness of growth (on the basis of innovations, partnerships, collaborations, and acquisitions).
Visionary Leaders generally receive high scores for most evaluation criteria. They provide mature and reputable mobile cybersecurity solutions. They also have strong business strategies. IBM, Cisco, HPE, Trend Mirco, and Symantec are the leading players in the cybersecurity software market and are recognized as leaders. These vendors are making their presence felt by offering services that are required by most organizations.
Innovators demonstrate substantial product innovation as compared to their competitors. They have a very focused portfolio of cybersecurity software solutions and the potential to build strong business strategies for their business growth to be at par with the leaders. However, they do not have very strong growth strategies for their overall business. Check Point Software, Rapid7, Dell, Optiv, FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, Juniper Networks, and Sophos are recognized as innovators. Innovators have been at the forefront in deploying their services based on the clients’ custom software requirements for the niche market.
Dynamic Differentiators are established vendors with very strong business strategies. However, they are low in the product portfolio. They generally focus on a specific type of technology related to the product. Trustwave Holdings and Cyberark is recognized as a dynamic differentiator.
EMERGING COMPANIESF-Secure, Webroot and Proofpoint are recognized as emerging players in the cybersecurity software market. The emerging players are specialized in offering highly niche and tailor-made solutions and services to their clients. They do not have very strong business strategies as compared to other established vendors. They might be new entrants in the market and require some more time before gaining significant market traction.
