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out-of-date, unencrypted or unsecured.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.
