Connected Medical Devices: The Weakest and Most Critical Assets

Healthcare providers rely on connected medical devices for their clinical workflows and life-saving treatments. However, unlike other IT assets, connected medical devices are barely protected. As experienced in the recent massive cyber-attacks, the growing cybersecurity concerns include the possibility of shutting down hospital operations via medical device attacks; potential risks associated with patient’s safety and life-threatening activity; financial losses; and reputational damages.

Why Medical Devices Are Vulnerable?


Unpatched Software

Unlike typical computers and devices, most medical devices lack the proper mechanism for security software patching. Due to their long lifespan, it is quite common to find operational medical devices with very old, unpatched operating systems. Moreover, even if updates are possible, as software vulnerabilities are discovered, medical devices remain unprotected for long periods due to long and heavy development validation processes.


Insufficient Security Controls

The majority of medical devices lack basic cybersecurity controls for continuous endpoint security such as EDR (Endpoint Detection and Recovery), anti-virus, firewalls and other authentication mechanisms which are an integral part of the IT toolbox.


Lack of Visibility

Unlike other network assets, connected medical devices are hardly visible in the native IT control systems. IT teams are unable to quantify and identify the devices in real time and as such are unaware of their cybersecurity risk status. Furthermore, it is impossible to recognize compromised medical devices.
You cannot protect what you cannot see.

Our Solution

Our network-based solution – MDefend - is designed to protect medical devices and their clinical networks, supporting hospital IT challenges and workflow. The solution, deployed as a virtual appliance on premise, is achieving the security and visibility objective via four pillars.


Continuous in-depth discovery of medical devices and clinical network assets


Concise risk assessment and security insights tailored to each medical device


Automatic Smart Isolation, reducing the attack surface, hence dramatically decreasing the chances of an attack


AI-based attack detection on top of prevention, resulting in concise alerting, containment and response when a concrete threat appears
