Healthcare information security group Meditology Services said today it is partnering with internet-of-things security firm CloudPost Networks to provide end-to-end medical device security program solutions.
Through the partnerships, the companies will look to provide medical device security programs that use CloudPost’s medical device inventory and protection software alongside services to protect patients from security risks associated with medical devices.
“Medical devices have become the weakest link in the security chain. We are excited to leverage the power of CloudPost’s cutting-edge technology alongside Meditology’s deep experience implementing medical device security strategies to keep patients safe from the daily onslaught of security threats. CloudPost’s passive inventory discovery, behavioral and network analysis, and threat detection capabilities allow automation of security protections for thousands of medical devices. Meditology leverages this technology to implement a strategic plan defining the people and processes required to protect medical devices. A team of experts are deployed as a managed service to better protect healthcare’s life-saving devices and systems,” Meditology Services partner Brian Selfridge said in a prepared statement.
“Healthcare entities struggling to get a handle on security protections for networked devices will greatly benefit from this partnership. With combined expertise of Meditology’s service practice and automation provided by CloudPost’s software, greater security protection can be a reality for patients served by networked medical devices,” CloudPost Networks co-founder & CEO Gnanaprakasam Pandian said in a press release.
