Oversight and Compliance Challenges
Keeping your inventory up-to-date with the latest advisories, recalls, and policies is a complex and time consuming process.
Managing recalls for medical devices involves identifying affected devices across various departments, tracking their locations, and ensuring their removal from service to prevent potential harm to patients—all while maintaining minimal disruption to critical care workflows.
Disseminating timely advisories about software vulnerabilities or potential risks to healthcare staff and administrators can be challenging due to the sheer volume of devices, diverse communication channels, and the need to convey urgency accurately to ensure prompt action.
Coordinating updates across a multitude of medical devices, often from different manufacturers and with varying compatibility requirements, necessitates meticulous planning to minimize downtime, ensure proper installation, and verify that the updates do not introduce new issues that could impact patient care.
Compliance Across Your Entire Inventory
Armis Centrix™ helps your team quickly respond to alerts and keep your inventory up to date.
Medical Device Inventory Management
Medical device recall and security advisories can be a complex process to remediate. Clinical engineers spend hours identifying and responding to incoming recall and security advisories manually identifying, reconciling, and remediating these alerts. Armis Centrix™ streamlines this process and automates recall advisories, generates weekly reports to track progress, and cuts down the manual efforts of your clinical engineers, saving them hours of labor.
Continuous Monitoring and Threat Detection
Security advisories are often very specific and can target any number of medical devices critical to the healthcare environment depending on the discovered vulnerability. Devices may be targeted by model, OS or OS version, application or more, creating a huge inventory issue for your team to sift through.
Armis Centrix™ is able to quickly identify affected devices when security advisories are released, enabling your security team to prioritize vulnerabilities before they are exploited. It can then help track remediation, implement mitigation measures, and monitor for future exploits.
Armis Centrix™, the cyber exposure management platform, empowers your team to immediately connect threat information with the devices you actually own, giving your response a high-speed advantage.
University Health Network Relies on Armis to See Their Entire Inventory
University Health Network, the largest teaching hospital in Canada, relies on Armis to track every device across their entire healthcare network. Armis enabled them to see value quickly, discover devices they didn’t know existed, and track and remediate recalls from oversight and governing boards. Armis also works alongside their existing integrations and dashboards to provide data that is immediately actionable.
