Gartner Recognizes LOCH Technologies
For the 3rd time in a row, Gartner lists LOCH Technologies as a representative vendor in their 2023 Market Guide for Medical Device Security Solutions.
According to Gartner, "High-profile cyber-attacks can create compromises that impact the back office of the HDO and the point of care. As HDOs modernize their infrastructure and refresh aging medical devices with newer, network-connected and programmable replacements, the risk of damage from cyberattacks increases.”
The facts trending thus far in 2023 have been nerve wracking. The HIPAA Journal reported in Aug. ‘23 - There was a 261% month-over-month increase in breached records in July, with 18,116,982 records breached across the 56 reported incidents. The incredibly high total was due to a major data breach at HCA Healthcare that saw the records of 11,270,000 individuals compromised.
Healthcare Delivery Organizations (HDOs) face a daunting challenge in safeguarding their environments against ever-evolving security threats. Most CIOs and CISOs lack an accurate inventory of medical devices, hindering their ability to protect the healthcare delivery ecosystem effectively. The growing size and diversity of IoMT and IoT devices within HDOs further escalate the threat surface, demanding innovative security solutions.
At LOCH Technologies, we are proud to be at the forefront of overcoming this cyber security challenge, empowering healthcare organizations to effectively manage medical devices and mitigate cybersecurity risks. Our solution goes beyond basic asset discovery for comprehensive tracking and continuous security posture management.
We recognize the critical role played by medical device security in modern healthcare. With the majority of the IoMT as well as the other IoT devices in HDO environments connecting via broad spectrum RF or wireless/cellular technologies and especially when such communications start and end with RF/Wireless, traditional IT security solutions like NDR or Firewalls have no visibility whatsoever.
This is why we invented the AirShield……
