MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ZingBox, leading a new generation of cybersecurity solutions focused on service protection, is showcasing its flagship product, IoT Guardian, at HIMSS17. The annual conference and exhibition brings together 40,000+ health IT professionals, clinicians, executives, and vendors from around the world. With unprotected medical devices being the top security vulnerability to the healthcare industry, ZingBox will demonstrate how IoT Guardian protects medical IT networks and ensures operational continuity and reliability of medical devices.
“Healthcare is one of the most attacked industries and has thousands of connected medical devices that, if compromised, not only put sensitive and confidential patient information at risk, but potentially put a patient’s life in jeopardy,” said Xu Zou, co-founder and CEO, ZingBox. “ZingBox is helping hospitals and healthcare organizations secure these devices on the network by providing unprecedented visibility and risk analysis to discover, detect and defend against these ongoing threats.”
WHAT: ZingBox to showcase IoT Guardian at HIMSS17
- The company will exhibit at the HIMSS17 Cybersecurity Command Center, Hall A, booth 376, kiosk #37 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Florida.
- HIMSS17 runs February 19–23, 2017.
- Private demos will take place Tuesday, February 21, 2017 in room 202B in the convention center from 3–5:30pm and will include special giveaways including an Amazon Echo Dot every 30 minutes.
ZingBox is the industry’s only IoT security solution to leverage the individual personality of connected medical devices, and the first to protect services–not just data. The patent-pending solution automatically discovers, identifies and classifies connected medical devices for enhanced visibility and real-time risk analysis. IoT Guardian can proactively protect medical devices from internal threats as well as cyber-attacks. The ZingBox solution also offers real-time operational and forward-looking compliance capabilities.
“Medical device networks in a hospital are not rigorously monitored. We needed a solution that would generate a real-time inventory of medical devices across the hospital network and evaluate the risk exposure,” said Jerry Marshall, Director Information Services and Telecommunications, United Regional Health Care System. “The ZingBox solution discovered over 95 percent of medical devices compared to current tools that could only detect about five percent. The intelligence and accuracy of elaborate device personalities allowed us to turn ZingBox into a tool that regulates medical device behaviors.”
