NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medigate today announced that Network Products Guide, the IT industry’s leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Medigate a Gold winner in the 14th Annual 2019 IT World Awards® in the Best Product, Service, Upgrade or Innovations category for Internet of Things (IoT). Medigate was honored for its unique medical device security and asset management platform, which addresses both clinical IoT and general IoT devices. Medigate enables accurate and comprehensive device discovery, contextual and behavioral anomaly detection, and clinical policy enforcement for healthcare organizations’ entire clinical networks. The industry and peer recognitions from Network Products Guide are the world’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry.
“Medigate has deep expertise in both cybersecurity and healthcare, and we’ve capitalized on this to take a distinctive approach to identifying and securing medical and IoT devices,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO of Medigate. “This award further validates our approach to helping healthcare organizations protect everything on their network and overcome the security threats that the industry is facing today.”
Cyberattacks are on the rise, especially in healthcare. Hospitals and health systems must prioritize their network security – but securing IoT devices is not the same as securing medical devices. Medigate is advancing healthcare cybersecurity by adding medical device and clinical workflow expertise to traditional IoT security. By fusing the knowledge and understanding of medical workflows, protocols and device identities with the reality of today’s pandemic cybersecurity threats, Medigate enables providers to ensure the delivery of critical treatment and the protection of patient data.
Instead of a one-size-fits-all-approach, Medigate focuses on healthcare and created the industry’s first device-specific security solution. Medigate’s unique approach includes using deep packet inspection and sophisticated parsing techniques to granularly identify devices, delivering custom, predefined and adaptive security policies based on the hospital’s device inventory. Leveraging their medical device research team to create communications policies and analyze data, Medigate integrates in meaningful ways – beyond simple data exchange via APIs – with healthcare security and life cycle management platforms.
An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the annual IT World Awards recognition program encompasses the world’s best in every area of information technology. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, October 28, 2019 during the annual SVUS Red Carpet Awards Ceremony Dinner in San Francisco.
