Partnership provides healthcare organizations with complete visibility and control into medical IoT devices to identify and respond to security threats
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IoT—Medigate, the leader in IoT and medical device security and asset management for healthcare, today announced a Clinical Security Operations Center (SOC) solution to help Splunk users at healthcare organizations accurately identify and quickly respond to all threats from connected medical and IoT devices on the network. The Clinical SOC helps users of Splunk® Enterprise and Splunk Cloud™ to detect, manage and respond to cybersecurity events in a clinical context so healthcare organizations can better understand what the findings mean for their institution.
The tailored app allows Splunkbase to consume Medigate’s data, leveraging Splunk’s advanced visualization, analytics and reporting capabilities. The data, fed into Splunk’s Data-to-Everything® Platform, enables sophisticated investigations, responses and remediation activities. As a result, healthcare institutions can easily derive specific insights based on Medigate clinical-focused IoT data. The custom handling of data and built-in dashboards simply present vital asset and events data in an easy-to-comprehend visual.
“Data is the lifeblood of every healthcare organization, yet much of this data is being shared over a growing network of IoT and medical devices – where each device could be used as a network access point for cyber criminals. Protecting this patient data and achieving superior network security is essential for every healthcare organization as we have seen an increase in the number of attacks in the past several months,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO and cofounder of Medigate. “Our partnership with Splunk is simplifying the process to locate devices, analyze their use and alert IT to solve any potential threats so healthcare institutions can automatically protect this sensitive information.”
Medigate’s solution addresses patient safety and privacy by automatically locating, identifying and managing the security posture of all devices connected to the network, in addition to powering clinical engineering with the device data they’ve never had available before to manage their fleet of medical devices. Medigate has continued its tremendous growth by demonstrating how comprehensive device data leads to new ROI and cost savings in healthcare delivery organizations around the world, from the largest health systems to specialty hospitals.
As proof of Medigate’s impact on the industry, the company was recently named a winner of the SINET 16 Innovator Award, where a panel of dozens of leading industry experts selected the 16 most innovative and compelling companies from more than one hundred emerging cybersecurity providers. This recognition follows a strong 2020 where Medigate was named as a “Market Leader” in Forrester’s New Wave Report, one of Forbes’ “Top 20 IoT Startups to Watch” and the winner of Frost and Sullivan’s “Enabling Technology Leadership Award for Medical Device Security.”
