Healthcare and life sciences facilities have seen an increase in cyberattacks with the growth of connected IoT medical devices.
Asimily is a provider of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) risk management platforms, while Extreme Networks is a provider of cloud-based networking solutions.
With this partnership, Asimily Insights will be integrated into the ExtremeCloud IQ Controller, a cloud-based wired and wireless network management solution from Extreme Networks.
“Asimily’s intuitive platform helps us identify and respond to the most critical risks to our organisation, and the integration with Extreme’s solutions enables us to enforce policies on devices as needed and address any concerns that can impact the confidentiality, integrity or availability of IoT and medical devices and their data,” said Ali Youssef, director, Medical Device and IoT Security at Henry Ford Health.
“Together, these solutions allow us to fill the gaps we previously had in our ability to manage device security and ensure we can continue to deliver patient services, which is always our top concern,” he added.
“ExtremeCloud IQ Controller provides unified services and features in a simplified management console for on and off-premise deployments. On-Premise deployment is critical for many Healthcare Delivery Organizations (HDOs),” said Dinesh Katiyar, Head of Business Development, Asimily. “This integrated solution provides HDOs a best vulnerability management platform with the flexibility to deploy on-premise.”
Asimily Insights uses AI-based analysis to prioritise exploitable vulnerabilities and prescribe clinically viable remediations outside of segmentation and blocking that are easy to implement. These remediations are transmitted to ExtremeCloud IQ Controller to centrally enforce network access policies to secure the device.
In addition, for devices where segmentation is the only option, Asimily Insights generates policies which are transmitted to ExtremeCloud IQ Controller to configure, isolate, segment and micro-segment the devices on the network.
“Extreme’s solutions are trusted by hospital systems and healthcare providers around the world. Our integration with Asimily creates a solution that is specifically designed for healthcare IT teams and enables them to find and address vulnerabilities before they are exploited, as well as ensure that security measures necessary for safe clinical operations are in place,” said Bob Zemke, Director, Business Development at Extreme Networks.
