The award is based on feedback from thousands of providers and collected by healthcare industry analysts at KLAS Research throughout the year.

“Achieving this prestigious KLAS award for a second consecutive year demonstrates Fortified’s commitment to protecting patient data and validates the impact we are making to secure health systems across the country,” said Dan L. Dodson, CEO of Fortified. “As the cyber-landscape evolves and attacks become more sophisticated, these key stakeholders can’t do it alone, and they don’t have to. Fortified is dedicated to working alongside hospital and health system cybersecurity teams to build customized programs that help protect them from existing cyber threats while scaling to meet new ones.”
