Medigate, a New York-based healthcare device security and asset management company, announces that it was selected as the “2021 Best in KLAS for Healthcare IoT Security” in the KLAS Software & Services Report. Medigate was rated as the top performing provider for its healthcare technology focus, responsiveness and close relationships with customers.

The yearly KLAS report evaluates the overall performance of each product and service then grades the customer’s experience across the following pillars: culture, loyalty, operations, product, relationship and value. Medigate earned the title of “Best in KLAS” for its efforts to help healthcare organizations in their quest to deliver quality patient care. The Best in KLAS designation is awarded to only one vendor per category.

Adam Gale, president of KLAS says, “The Best in KLAS report and the awards it contains set the standard of excellence for software and services firms. Vendors who win the title of “Best in KLAS” should celebrate and remember that providers now accept only the best from their products and services.”

Company officials say Medigate’s understanding of medical workflows and communication protocols unique to healthcare IoT provides the clinical security context that healthcare cybersecurity specialists need to effectively reduce the attack surface. Specifically, Medigate’s technology enables automatic discovery of all connected devices on clinical networks to detect credible threats in real-time, prevent attacks, and enforce policies to protect patient safety and privacy.

According to a healthcare organization that spoke with KLAS analysts for the report, “Once we saw what Medigate can do with their follow-ups, tech support, and general involvement, we couldn’t choose anyone else. With the way the product is organized and the way the vendor runs things, they are right on top of everything…Whatever the vendor is doing with their business plan is incredibly effective. The business model that the vendor has is really good.”

Medigate’s CEO Jonathan Langer also spoke out about this designation, commenting: “As this recognition is based directly on insights from healthcare professionals, it is a testament to how Medigate is achieving its mission of assisting healthcare organizations in making better security and asset management decisions to reduce risks and achieve better patient outcomes. We remain committed to advancing our platform by partnering with the industry to make sure it meets their current and future needs.”
