When it comes to the security and management of connected medical devices and the digital assets proliferating across the patient journey, healthcare organizations face significant challenges. Information security teams need the right mix of capabilities to protect every device and ensure compliance. And clinical engineering teams need to ensure that the patient care delivery process goes off without a hitch. It’s a huge ask on both sides, given that the majority of connected medical devices have known vulnerabilities, and traditional security and management solutions lack the comprehensive capabilities needed to secure and monitor every asset on the network.
