Patient data protection provider Tausight this week announced that it has raised $20 million in Series A funding.
The new funding, Tausight says, will help expand the go-to-market team and invest in a healthcare-specific solution designed to identify security flaws in clinical workflows.
The new funding round was co-led by existing investors Polaris Partners and Flare Capital Partners. New investor .406 Ventures also participated.
Founded in 2018 and based in Boston, Mass., Tausight aims to help organizations ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patients’ protected health information (PHI).
Tausight’s offerings help healthcare provider CIOs, CISOs, and IT organizations understand the risk associated with the manner in which PHI is used, and help them secure access to clinical workflows and PHI.
“Existing cybersecurity solutions address critical aspects of securing the healthcare IT system but are not adequately addressing hidden vulnerabilities found in clinical workflows – Tausight was created to close this gap and solve this vital problem,” Tausight CEO Dave Dickinson said.
