The Philips Cybersecurity Services are an end-to-end suite of technologies and services designed for safeguarding customers’ medical systems, devices and related software solutions, regardless of their manufacturer, according to a news release.
Amsterdam-based Philips’ suite of technologies will initially be deployed in the U.S. before planned expansion begins in other geographies in 2021.
The Philips Cybersecurity Services suite is supported by a new partnership with CyberMDX, which develops cybersecurity capabilities that can collect data and insights and form a core foundation for the development and implementation of a full cybersecurity plan for individual customers.
“Successfully preventing cyber-threats and future-proofing digital healthcare environments requires a systemic, disciplined approach in both design and implementation, as well as strong partnerships,” Philips head of global services & solutions Conrad Smits said in the release. “We are pleased to partner with CyberMDX, and through our complementary tools and expertise, we will be able to provide an integrated cybersecurity service offering for our customers.”
“Both CyberMDX and Philips strive to make healthcare a safer place by continuously building out more robust cybersecurity solutions,” CyberMDX co-founder & CEO Amir Magner added. “Our industry leading multi-vendor Healthcare Security Suite works to protect all connected devices in hospital environments, whether managed or unmanaged, by leveraging a combination of risk assessment, detection, threat intelligence and prevention capabilities.”
