MediMizer today announced the availability of its integration with Asimily Insight for cybersecurity. The joint solution automates the discovery of connected inventory and the challenging process of creating and maintaining a single, trusted medical device inventory.
The integrated solutions provide the ability to identify and classify connected medical device on the network along with new and modern capabilities to prioritize at-risk devices and within it, the most critical vulnerabilities. Asimily provides passive monitoring for real-time threat detection and actionable intelligence for healthcare technology management and security operations teams to work together for rapid remediation of known vulnerabilities and threats. The bi-directional integration enriches Asimily’s machine learning capabilities using rich contextual medical device data. MediMizer benefits from real-time security incident information to drive the cybersecurity remediation workflows.
“Our customers can rely on Asimily’s capabilities to deliver critical cybersecurity capabilities to identify, evaluate, prioritize, and mitigate vulnerabilities and protect connected devices and other important operational insights into their critical infrastructure. Our Mission is to keep the connected device fleet safe and reliably utilized to ensure better patient outcomes,” said Consti Fernandes, VP of Engineering, Asimily. “Our integration with MediMizer allows customers to turn insight from the platform into action by enabling the healthcare system to instantly react to and remediate security threats targeting their connected device fleet.”
The threat of cyberattacks against medical and IoT devices is massive and exponentially increasing risk for healthcare systems. Gartner estimates that the number of medical devices that will need to be “hardened” by healthcare systems will increase 45% by 2020.1 In the absence of a solution like this, healthcare systems will need to cobble together a patchwork of tools and manual processes comprising multiple and disparate systems-of-record, naming convention mismatches that will introduce friction and risk to their ability to effectively combat cyber threats.
“We believe cybersecurity is a key part of any medical device management plan. The key to risk management is having the right solutions that address all facets of the problem,” said Mark Woodruff, CTO MediMizer. “Our integration with Asimily provides cybersecurity capabilities that deliver on the promise of keeping connected devices safe and reliable, protect patients and allow HTM departments the tools to shield the healthcare system from the liabilities and exposures resulting from cybersecurity exploits.”
