AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 31, 2017) - CynergisTek™, an Auxilio company (OTCQB: AUXOD), an industry leader in health information privacy, compliance and cyber security, today announced that it was ranked Best in KLAS in the Cyber Security Advisory Services category in the 2017 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. This is the first time this category has been included in the Best in KLAS rankings.
The 2017 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report provides a high-level overview of performance ratings for vendors offering software, professional services and medical equipment to the healthcare industry. The report includes client satisfaction scores and benchmark performance metrics, which many provider organizations reference when they select IT partners. According to the report, CynergisTek received the highest scores from its clients in overall satisfaction. CynergisTek received an overall score of 93.7 out of 100.
"This is a great honor and incredibly humbling. This accolade is particularly gratifying since it is based on our clients' own experiences with our consultants and services," said Mac McMillan, CEO of CynergisTek. "I've always been a huge proponent of what KLAS does and how they do it. Moreover, the addition of this category by KLAS reinforces the critical importance of cyber security advisory services in healthcare at this time and the call from CIOs for more resources to help them meet the cyber security challenges they face."
CynergisTek was also recognized by KLAS in 2016 in a report titled, "Security Advisory Services: Which Firms Are Helping Providers Sleep at Night?" where it was named the highest-rated firm that healthcare provider organizations rely on for security consulting and services.
"The Best in KLAS report celebrates and recognizes vendors who have made significant strides to improve healthcare while addressing changes like payment reform and the shift to population health. The KLAS team applauds your efforts and acknowledges your commitment to innovation and achievement," said Adam Gale, President of KLAS. "As the years go by, we are continually humbled by the number of providers who share their experiences with us; they make all our reports, especially our Best in KLAS report, possible."
In mid-January, CynergisTek announced it would be merging the resources of Redspin and Delphiis, adding additional technical security and risk management capabilities to its service offerings, further validating the company's mission to meet the growing security needs of its customer base.
