Phoenix Data Systems Inc. recently announced a mutual partnership with ASIMILY, a health care sector-leading comprehensive connected and medical device asset, cybersecurity and lifecycle management platform. Together the firms provide clients with a complete, end-to-end lifecycle, cybersecurity, asset and risk management solution for health care delivery organizations.
“Blending the most complete feature-function health care CMMS available with a comprehensive connected asset inventory, cyber-risk threat prioritization, intelligence and lifecycle data processing platform; the two industry partners enhance and deliver a world-class medical device cybersecurity risk mitigation platform to support the HTM departments, as well as the broad ecosystem of stakeholders across today’s always connected health care organization,” according to a press release.
The integrated solutions deliver auto-discovery capabilities that automate the challenging process of creating and maintaining a single, trusted medical device inventory with the critical data elements required in the connected health care environment. As the BlueKeep vulnerability exposed earlier this year, the need to quickly identify, locate and track connected devices is critical to maintain patient safety and hospital operations; as well as securing private data and health care networks.
With the two platforms integrated, clients are able to meld connected device profiles on the network for identification and classification along with new, modern capabilities to prioritize at-risk devices and the most critical vulnerabilities to provide device and vulnerability specific remediations, and create a seamless resource allocation and ticket management workflows and provide end-to-end risk- and life-cycle management for critical, connected medical device and Internet of Things (IoT) assets.
Phoenix Data Systems’ AIMS and ASIMILY’s INSIGHT platforms support non-invasive monitoring for real-time threat detection and a system of action for HTM and security operations teams to work together for rapid remediation of known vulnerabilities and threats. With the bi-directional integration AIMS benefits from real-time security incident information to drive the cybersecurity remediation workflows and enriches ASIMILY’s machine learning and AI capabilities using rich contextual medical device data.
