Everything You Need to Know About Clinical Network Segmentation
Protecting medical devices from cyber attacks is difficult because of connections devices rely on to function normally, because many devices run old and unsupported operating systems that can't be patched, and because standard security tools and procedures don't understand the impact devices have on patient care and outcomes. Setting up firewalls or blocking communications between devices crucial to medical services puts patients in danger and can jeopardize entire clinical networks. Network segmentation is often the only way to secure your network, and testing policies is the only way to be 100% confident segmentation policies won't disrupt clinical services.
Cynerio is the only provider in the medical IoT cybersecurity space to offer clients the Virtual Segmentation capability. This capability ensures service continuity and patient safety with robust and customized segmentation policies that can be tested and edited before they're enforced on the live network.
Healthcare IoT devices are difficult to protect. They rely on unusual connections and often run unsupported OS that can't be patched. Standard security tools aren’t healthcare safe and can jeopardize patients and break the network.
Cynerio's Virtual Segmentation capability provides hospitals with healthcare-safe segmentation and security policies. With the ability to define, test, validate, and edit all policies before they’re enforced, hospitals can be 100% confident in network security, patient safety, and service continuity.
