Medigate and Check Point are delivering an IoT and IoMT security solution that addresses the security risks connected devices generate in the clinical network. Combining Medigate’s industry-leading, clinically contextual visibility and detection capabilities with Check Point’s proven Security Gateway capabilities provides healthcare organizations with a healthcare security solution tailored to their unique needs.
Watch the video to learn how the integrated solution discovers medical devices and healthcare IoT in a clinical network, and enforces a context-aware policy based on these devices’ attributes.
Medigate’s passive platform is easily installed within a hospital’s network and integrates with Check Point’s R80 management system and Security Gateways. Once connected, Medigate’s medical device security platform shares identified device and application information with Check Point’s SmartConsole. This enables an all-in-one viewing experience for complete device visibility information generated by both platforms, creating a seamless experience.
It all starts with granular visibility of every medical device on the network. Utilizing deep packet inspection, Medigate provides fingerprinting of a device’s unique identifiers, including: configuration, utilization, performance and location. Integrating the two systems enables the data from both systems to be displayed within the Check Point SmartConsole, removing the needed to flip back and forth between dashboards.
Having the ability to tag medical devices by functionality type, vendor and model name enables more granular policy management capabilities. Medigate also makes sure that the tags stay current by constantly monitoring changes in the device’s network properties, such as IP address and software version.
