MedScan for Hospitals

MedScan for Hospitals

MedSec is excited to introduce MedScan, a new tool which assesses the cybersecurity status of medical devices on a hospital’s network.

A combination of hardware which sits on a hospital’s network and proprietary software which runs over a secure cloud, MedScan employs uniquely designed scanning techniques to determine whether devices are out-of-date, unencrypted or unsecured.

MedScan acts as both a compliance and proactive management tool, offering hospital security executives opportunities to better budget for and plan a comprehensive security program that includes appropriate medical equipment software updates.

Because of the custom proprietary protocols in many medical devices, it’s often difficult for IT departments to know which devices are even on the network. Traditional enterprise scanning tools fail to identify medical devices in many instances because of these proprietary protocols. MedScan replaces the need for hospitals to devote dedicated and specialized hospital IT staff to the monitoring and management of medical devices.
