New York-based Medigate, a leader in IoT and medical device security and asset management for healthcare, announced a Clinical Security Operations Center (SOC) solution to help Splunk users at healthcare organizations accurately identify and quickly respond to all threats from connected medical and IoT devices on the network. The Clinical SOC helps users of Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud to detect, manage, and respond to cybersecurity events in a clinical context so healthcare organizations can better understand what the findings mean for their institution.
The tailored app allows Splunkbase to consume Medigate’s data, leveraging San Francisco-based Splunk’s advanced visualization, analytics, and reporting capabilities. The data, fed into Splunk’s Data-to-Everything Platform, enables sophisticated investigations, responses, and remediation activities. As a result, healthcare institutions can easily derive specific insights based on Medigate clinical-focused IoT data. The custom handling of data and built-in dashboards simply present vital asset and events data in an easy-to-comprehend visual.
“Data is the lifeblood of every healthcare organization, yet much of this data is being shared over a growing network of IoT and medical devices—where each device could be used as a network access point for cyber criminals. Protecting this patient data and achieving superior network security is essential for every healthcare organization as we have seen an increase in the number of attacks in the past several months,” says Jonathan Langer, CEO and cofounder of Medigate.
“Our partnership with Splunk is simplifying the process to locate devices, analyze their use, and alert IT to solve any potential threats so healthcare institutions can automatically protect this sensitive information,” Langer adds.
Medigate’s solution addresses patient safety and privacy by automatically locating, identifying, and managing the security posture of all devices connected to the network, in addition to powering clinical engineering with the device data they’ve never had available before to manage their fleet of medical devices. Medigate has continued its tremendous growth by demonstrating how comprehensive device data leads to new ROI and cost savings in healthcare delivery organizations around the world, from the largest health systems to specialty hospitals.
