About this Constellation ShortList
There has been an infiltration of connected medical devices in the hospital networks. Connecting these medical devices will improve the care provided to the patient, but at the same time, it also increases the risk of potential cybersecurity threats. Medical devices, like other endpoint systems, can be vulnerable to security breaches, potentially impacting the safety of the patient.
Security is a top board risk, and every CIO has to figure out how to get a handle on medical device management in the institution since there is a considerable gap. Healthcare organizations are breaking down the organizational silos where the Biomedical department traditionally managed the medical devices. The future hospital structure will require management of medical devices under IT so that it is part of the overall IT security program.
Constellation considers the following criteria for these solutions:
- Device visibility on network
- Intelligent classification of the devices
- Ease of integration with IT infrastructure
- Threat isolation and removal
