PALO ALTO, Calif., March 22 — Armis, the enterprise IoT security company, announced it was named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Medical Device Security in Q1 2019. The technology vendors included in the Constellation ShortListTM offer the key requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives.
Healthcare organizations responsible for protecting sensitive patient personal health information (PHI) today must support the Internet of Things. Devices used by healthcare organizations — from MRI machines and infusion pumps to monitoring and imaging equipment — have a created a new class of Medical IoT (MIoT), an expanded attack surface holding sensitive patient data. While MIoT can increase productivity for organizations and data accessibility for patients, many new connected medical devices were not created with security in mind. In fact, many cannot support an agent, the mechanism allowing for traditional endpoint security protection. As an agentless IoT security platform, Armis instantly protects hospitals and their environment by allowing every device to safely connect to the network. Armis identifies and profiles devices, connections and anomalous behavior to protect patient care.
“Armis recently conducted a survey at HIMSS to understand the cross-section between MIoT usage and security in healthcare organizations. Three-quarters of respondents are using IoT to support or supplement staff, but half reported that they had neither the budget nor security controls to protect it,” said Yevgeny Dibrov, CEO and co-founder of Armis. “This precisely illustrates the challenges healthcare organizations have in their efforts to undergo digital transformation, but do so securely. We’re honored to be recognized by Constellation Research for our efforts to help healthcare companies shine a light on their IoT usage, and to protect their businesses and patients.”
“The Post-Digital era has arrived. In a world of winner-takes-all markets, digital leaders seek clarity on what exponential technologies will support their new business models. This Constellation ShortList filters the signal from the noise and highlights the key technologies our analysts recommend to our clients,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research.
Constellation Research advises leaders on leveraging disruptive technologies to achieve business model transformation. Products and services named to the Constellation ShortList meet the threshold criteria for this category as determined through client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share, and internal research. The portfolio is frequently updated as market conditions change.
