New York-based Medigate has launched the Medigate Healthcare Protection Solution, powered by Dell Technologies. The Medigate collaboration with Dell Technologies and VMware provides hospitals and healthcare organizations with enhanced visibility into their clinical data centers to uncover network vulnerabilities and then protect against security threats, company officials say.

According to KLAS Research, 36% of CIOs and CISOs are not confident in their medical device security, due to a lack of inventory and asset management. Medigate’s collaboration with Dell Technologies and VMware provides hospitals the visibility into their networks to identify individual connected devices and then implement threat prevention and protection to reduce risks and ensure patient safety when connected to devices. The technology also provides insights into device utilization to reduce overall maintenance costs.

“In teaming up with Dell Technologies and VMware, we are providing hospitals and healthcare systems with the integrated security capabilities they need to protect their increasingly connected networks,” says Jonathan Langer, CEO of Medigate. “Our integrated solution will mitigate threats while allowing for the delivery of uninterrupted, high-quality patient care.”

Combining Medigate’s visibility and clinical experience with server and security technologies from Dell Technologies and VMware’s zero-trust enforcement and micro segmentation capabilities for software-defined networks gives healthcare organizations a single cybersecurity solution that enables effective protection for clinical data centers, according to company officials.

“Cybersecurity solutions are more critical than ever within hospital environments as the rise of digital healthcare expands the number of devices that access protected health information,” says David DeAngelis, general manager, healthcare, Dell Technologies. “Our Dell EMC PowerEdge server technology, in collaboration with Medigate, enables hospitals to help create and enforce clinically-vetted security policies from their data center, to the edge, to protect their patient data and operations.”
