Medigate Expands Medical Device Security and Asset Management Platform to include IoT Devices

Medigate, a dedicated medical device security and asset management platform, has announced that it has expanded the platform to clinical IoT and general IoT devices. Medigate reportedly now enables accurate and comprehensive device discovery, contextual and behavioral anomaly detection as well as clinical policy enforcement for Health Delivery Organizations’ (HDO) entire clinical networks.

“As HDOs race to secure IoT devices connecting to their hospital’s network, our distinctive approach to identifying and securing medical devices provides us with a unique seat at the table,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO, Medigate. “Our understanding of proprietary protocols provides hospitals with granular visibility, contextual anomaly detection and clinical policy enforcement so CISOs, IT, security and BioMed departments have the tools they each need to ensure patients, PHI and the network remain safe.”

Medigate said the product enhancements are a response to HDOs requesting to identify and secure all devices connected to the network with its proven methodology, not just medical devices. The expanded solution starts with medical devices, which are the most challenging to secure due to their proprietary nature and lack of embedded security, then works its way outward to the various types of IoT found in healthcare and in corporate networks.

The latest product enhancements are designed to provide HDOs with the same proprietary protocol and DPI techniques Medigate uses for medical devices for all their IoT devices.
