Today, Fast Company announced Medigate’s inclusion as one of the most Innovative Companies this year. This recognition comes directly on the heels of HIMSS.
For 3 days last week, our presence spanned the entire width of the Orange County Convention Center, literally. Medigate had 2 booths this year – one in the Cybersecurity Command Center with our partner, Palo Alto Networks, and, the other in Innovation Live! We met with hundreds of customers, prospects, partners and friends. We had standing room only attendance at our session in the Cybersecurity Command Center where one of our customers shared their initiatives and strategy for securing their medical devices and hosted more than 100 CIOs and CISOs our customers at several VIP events including a reception at SeaWorld’s Shamu Stadium.
With the crowds and reception better than expected, it didn’t go unnoticed that this year more and more CISOs, BioMed and IT managers came together to meet with us. The issues were clear and crossed over to every corner of the hospital. How many medical devices are connected to my network? Where exactly are they? What are they doing? And, are they supposed to be doing that?
Our mantra – traditional IoT security is not enough is resonating across hospitals and health systems. It’s not about the IP address or just watching anomalies in network traffic – it’s about knowing what what’s really happening when those devices are connected to the hospital’s network and if it’s permitted by the manufacturer’s protocols. It’s understanding that if a fetal heart monitor is talking to an MRI machine it’s bad. Traditional IoT security won’t understand that’s a risk; Medigate will and it will prioritize the alert for you because the only reason that could happen is if you’ve been hacked.
With our successful HIMSS presence and validation today by Fast Company, we are more excited than ever to help solve the IoMT security needs for healthcare delivery organizations.
