CloudWave, a healthcare data security company backed by Abry Partners, has acquired Sensato Cybersecurity, a managed cybersecurity services provider.

Sensato, founded by John Gomez, works to protect healthcare providers from ransomware events and other cybersecurity threats. The company’s cybersecurity-as-a-service technology provides real-time network monitoring, intrusion detection and asset fingerprinting along with a 24/7 security operations center for healthcare infrastructure and connected devices. Gomez will join Cloudwave as chief security and engineering officer.

“CloudWave has witnessed how devastating a cyber event can be to healthcare organizations. Unfortunately, the frequency of these attacks continues to rise,” comments Erik Littlejohn, president and CEO of CloudWave. “With the addition of the innovative, proprietary technologies included in the Sensato Cybersecurity suite, along with the cyber expertise of the Sensato team, CloudWave will be able to offer customers the high-level cybersecurity we provide for our cloud-based delivery to on-premises systems.”
