NEW YORK—Aug. 26, 2020Medigate, a dedicated medical device security and asset management solution firm, today announced that is has been named a finalist in the Black Unicorn Awards for 2020.

Medigate is competing against many of the industry’s leading providers of cybersecurity products and services for this prestigious award.  The term “Black Unicorn” signifies a cybersecurity company that has the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market value as determined by private or public investment (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicorn_(finance)) and these awards showcase those companies with this kind of incredible potential in the cybersecurity marketplace.

“It’s exciting to see Medigate making it into the finalist round among other cybersecurity industry leaders in our second annual Black Unicorn awards,” said Judges Robert R. Ackerman Jr. of www.allegiscyber.com, David DeWalt of www.nightdragon.com and Gary Miliefsky of www.cyberdefensemediagroup.com

“Healthcare cyberattacks are on the rise due to the increasing amount of IoT devices connecting to a network, remote or telehealth options and the COVID-19 pandemic. It is never more critical than now to ensure that hospital networks are protected,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO and cofounder of Medigate. “As the only healthcare centric security company named to this list, Medigate is honored to bring the spotlight to this issue. We remain focused on offering innovative cybersecurity for clinical networks to meet the growing demand in the healthcare sector.”

Medigate closes the healthcare IoT cybersecurity gap that most general security solutions cannot address with a security platform specifically designed for the unique needs of medical devices and clinical networks. Installed in nearly 2,000 healthcare locations around the world, Medigate’s platform enables the automatic discovery of all connected devices, IoT and IoMT, on clinical networks, in turn detecting credible threats in real-time, preventing attacks and malicious communication and enforcing clinically driven policies to protect patient safety and privacy.
