Medigate, a dedicated medical device security and asset management solution firm, today announced the Medigate Healthcare Protection Solution powered by Dell Technologies. The Medigate collaboration with Dell Technologies and VMware provides hospitals and healthcare organizations with enhanced visibility into their clinical data centers to uncover network vulnerabilities and then protect against security threats.
Today’s healthcare organizations face a growing security threat due to the rising number of devices connecting to their networks. According to KLAS Research, 36% of CIOs and CISOs are not confident in their medical device security due to a lack of inventory and asset management. Medigate’s collaboration with Dell Technologies and VMware provides hospitals the visibility into their networks to identify individual connected devices and then implement threat prevention and protection to reduce risks and ensure patient safety when connected to devices. The solution also provides advanced insights into device utilization to reduce overall maintenance costs.
“In teaming up with Dell Technologies and VMware, we are providing hospitals and healthcare systems with the integrated security capabilities they need to protect their increasingly connected networks. Our integrated solution will mitigate threats while allowing for the delivery of uninterrupted, high-quality patient care,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO of Medigate. “Medigate is committed to collaborating with industry-leading security firms to bring a unified set of solutions and services that address current and future needs of all healthcare organizations.”
Combining Medigate’s visibility and clinical expertise with server and security technologies from Dell Technologies and VMware’s zero-trust enforcement and micro segmentation capabilities for software-defined networks gives healthcare organizations a single cybersecurity solution that enables effective protection for clinical data centers.
“Cybersecurity solutions are more critical than ever within hospital environments as the rise of digital healthcare expands the number of devices that access protected health information,” said David DeAngelis, General Manager, Healthcare, Dell Technologies. “Our Dell EMC PowerEdge server technology, in collaboration with Medigate, enables hospitals to help create and enforce clinically-vetted security policies from their data center, to the edge, to protect their patient data and operations.”
Medigate is the industry’s first and leading dedicated medical device security and asset management platform, enabling providers to deliver secure, connected care. Medigate fuses the knowledge and understanding of medical workflow and device identity and protocols with the reality of today’s cybersecurity threats. With Medigate, hospital networks can safely operate all medical devices on their network, enabling deployment of existing and new devices to patients while ensuring privacy and safety.
