Medigate, a company specializing in healthcare security and clinical asset management based in Brooklyn, N.Y., has announced its expansion into the Asia-Pacific region. Capitalizing on recently acquired clients in Australia, Medigate’s investment reflects its overall commitment to healthcare providers across the region, according to the company.
The threat landscape for the devices that underpin connected care delivery continues to expand. Because critical caredevices cannot be managed by traditional IT tools, demand for solutions that address such challenges is high. By providing visibility to connected assets of all types, Medigate’s deterministic, passive detection capabilities are designed to manage and strengthen the security posture of all devices connecting to clinical networks.
Medigate has appointed Luke Zappara as the regional director of the Asia-Pacific region. Bringing more than 22 years of industry and sales experience, Zappara will establish the regional team and spearhead Medigate’s expansion and growth strategy. Before joining Medigate, Zappara held senior roles at F5 Networks, DXC, CA, and Cisco.
“Global expansion has always been the goal for us,” says Jonathan Langer, co-founder and CEO at Medigate. “The decision to invest in the region comes after a sustained period of positive growth and the acquisition of several landmark clients in Australia. We take pride in delivering an unmatched client experience, and Luke and his team are already making strides in establishing the region to continue this at a local level. I look forward to seeing what’s to come.”
Medigate also recently announced the launch of Clinical Device Efficiency (CDE), a new module focused on improving device use and management. CDE integrates with leading CMMS systems and delivers a common data foundation. The module provides real-time device location, detailed utilization analytics, and inventory data. The data are fed into a recommendation engine aimed at improving allocations and capital planning.
“The shift to digital health exposes a wealth of data,” Zappara says. “Investing in a platform that turns that data into meaningful, actionable insights that improve your security posture or support critical decisions—it is the key to extracting maximum business value and ultimately delivering better patient care. That platform is Medigate, and I am excited to be a part of it.”
