Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are a critical part of modern healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs). The growing number of these connected devices has resulted in a significant increase in security risk.

The Gartner Market Guide for Medical Device Security Solutions provides CIOs, CISOs, and security staff with insights into solutions to guide education, strategy, and software selection. Key findings in the report include:

  • “Most healthcare delivery organization (HDO) CIOs and chief information security officers (CISOs) do not have an up-to-date, complete and accurate inventory of the medical devices within their enterprises. This thwarts efforts to protect their healthcare delivery environments from continuous security threats.
  • Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and Internet of Things (IoT) device populations are growing in size and diversity within HDOs. This growth drives increased smart device network traffic and the size and complexity of the resulting threat surface.
  • Market solutions that address these issues started with simple discovery and risk scoring, and have developed into full-fledged security protection systems for IoMT populations inside HDOs.”
