Device Authority, a pioneer in Identity and Access Management (IAM) for the Internet of Things (IoT), and Medigate, an IoT device security and healthcare asset management company, announce their partnership to secure the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).
Whether it’s improving the cybersecurity of IoMT or addressing other challenges directly, this partnership offers healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) significant new integrated capabilities.
Explosive spending on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is ushering in a healthcare revolution. And advances in telehealth and COVID-inspired remote patient monitoring (RPM) are making the trend worse. But connected medical progress comes at a price.
Increased cyber risks
IoMT devices and their ability to connect to healthcare IT systems have also increased cyber risks
IoMT devices and their ability to connect to healthcare IT systems have also increased cyber risks. They need to be dealt with effectively, as cyber attacks not only pose a threat to HDO’s financial business interests, but also pose potential risks to patient safety. The Medigate platform merges its understanding of clinical workflows with unmatched device profiling capabilities and knowledge of authorized operational requirements.
This allows the business to instantly detect abnormal device behavior and trigger the appropriate remediation workflows. It also enables instant correlations between threats and potentially impacted HDO assets. Device Authority’s KeyScaler ™ platform uses patented Dynamic Device Key Generation (DDKG) and PKI Signature + technology to address the challenges of identity access management. KeyScaler is particularly effective for medical devices, as it secures the identity of medical devices and offers an automated approach to registration and authentication.
Protection of sensitive data
These measures protect sensitive patient data and other information exchanged between a wide range of devices, from smartphones and tablets, to large surgical robots or any device that uses standard digital certificate protocols. This partnership also opens up the possibility of adapting Device Authority’s KeyScaler to existing devices. This has the potential to generate significant ROI, cost savings, and help HDOs comply more quickly with new and pending safety directives, guidelines and regulations.
Together, we have a robust and secure end-to-end solution for healthcare providers “
“We are delighted to partner and collaborate with Medigate, which focuses on the medical and healthcare industry, which has always been at the heart of Device Authority’s concerns. Together, we have a robust and secure end-to-end solution for healthcare providers and medical device manufacturers that solve detection, patient safety, compliance and data security challenges.“said Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority.
Stay focused on the clinic
“The COVID-19 outbreak has shown us the power of healthcare IT, but it has also reinforced how essential it is to manage and protect the devices used to facilitate care, both indoors. and outside the four walls of the hospital. By integrating Medigate technology into the Device Authority platform, we are able to offer uniquely designed capabilities to meet NIST identification, detection and protection functions, while remaining clinically focused and responsive to medical work flow.. “
“We are excited to partner with Device Authority and have the opportunity to leverage their industry-leading solutions to protect patients, clinicians, hospital leaders, and everyone who uses IoMT every day.Said Stephan Goldberg, vice president of systems engineering at Medigate.
