Securing healthcare infrastructures

The frequency and severity of cyberattacks on healthcare is growing at an alarming rate. Bringing its long expertise in securing critical infrastructures to the healthcare sector, G+D helps institutions in their race to build up cyber security. More importantly, its secure IoT solutions create a protected framework as healthcare embarks on the IoMT journey.

While breaches are a major concern in and of themselves, they also point to an underlying vulnerability in hospitals and healthcare. Medical devices are increasingly digital and connected. Their long lifecycle has many legacy devices depending on outdated operating systems such as Windows XP, which no longer receives security patches. Moreover, generic IT security products, such as antivirus or firewalls software, however, cannot provide sufficient IoMT security.
G+D's smart health portfolio actively shields and secures access to medical devices in all areas, from diagnostics to critical care. It supports onboarding new devices as well as retrofitting. This allows customers to extend the short security lifespan of medical devices to match their much longer machine lifecycle. Healthcare institutions can tailor this modular and scalable solution to their specific needs. Offerings include full security lifecycle management and security-related services.

Improved treatment outcomes and greater patient satisfaction at lower costs are key advantages of the Internet of Medical Things. But cyber security and protecting patient data is fast gaining in importance.

Cost pressure and higher patient expectations drive digitization

Smart Health 2.0 is a global trend. Why? As cost pressure rises, hospitals and healthcare look to digitization to help them increase efficiency as they strive to ensure operational excellence, improved treatment outcome, and greater patient satisfaction.

The Internet of Medical Things provides an interoperable digital environment, where healthcare professionals and administrators can securely exchange patient data to to ensure improved quality of care. However, this higher level of connectivity also requires top-level security measures. The solution? G+D's Secure Medical Visibility (SMV) Suite.

Its potential for fraud, identity theft, and abuse makes patient data 10x more valuable on the dark web than credit card data.  «

Paving the way for the secure digital transformation of healthcare

G+D's Secure Medical Visibility (SMV) solution not only shields healthcare IT with the latest in high-end security technology. The visibility of connected devices and their usage benefits healthcare institutions at all levels.

SMV gives healthcare providers, administrators, and staff the detailed insights across patients, locations, and installations they need to increase efficiency. Transparent and actionable data analytics help decision-makers optimize performance, streamline processes and workflows, and develop new business and reimbursement models. Capacity management benefits from health stats for their entire device fleet. This includes connected devices originally not designed to provide data to IoT.

SMV by G+D meets the recommended levels of security for remote management in industrial environments (BSI-CS 108, "Fernwartung im industriellen Umfeld") of the German Federal Office for Information Security. As a future-proof solution, it implements new security and safety standards as they become available.


What Secure Medical Visibility can do for you

  • Gain visibility and control usage thanks to detailed insight across all your customers, locations, and installations.
  • Keep investment in security expertise low. Remote access and near real-time data, such as alarms and error messages, help you reduce reaction times, service time, and costs, for example for travel expenses.
  • Enables predicitive capacity planning and new services for quality assurance, such as tracking changes with auditable logs.
  • Minimize your total cost of ownership by syncing device and IT lifecycles. Enable new usage-based business models or outsource production based on actionable data.
  • Manage multiple sites with a central-management platform that makes it easy to keep policies consistent across locations. Multiple service-partner management, i.e. multi-tenancy, is supported.
  • Increase protection with up-to-date and future-oriented cyber protection. The solution also helps prevent data leakage.
  • Protect your remote and roaming staff by making it easy for them to work safely outside of your network – no matter where they are – with a browser-based user interface.
  • Allows for anonymized predictive health data analytics
