Israeli Health Ministry official Reuven Eliahu said Israel, in coordination with cybersecurity firm FireEye, has developed a "cyber defense shield" to provide real-time protection from attacks on that nation’s health sector.

The tool will be freely available to all Israeli health organizations.

Eliahu said the tool is being deployed in response to spiking state-sponsored attacks since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Said Eliahu, “Our workers are at home, and it’s their home [systems] that are less protected. We see more and more state-sponsored players who are working as spies…. Many are looking to get their hands on solutions to the virus.”
