The Growing Need for Healthcare Cybersecurity
The healthcare industry is undergoing a digital transformation, embracing many connected medical devices to deliver advanced and quality patient care. However, this widespread adoption of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has significantly increased the attack surface for potential cyber threats.
Unlike conventional IT assets such as laptops and desktop computers, most connected devices are unmanaged and unagentable. Traditional security solutions struggle to provide adequate protection, exposing hospitals and medical clinics to data breaches and disruptive ransomware attacks. With 58% of IT professionals in healthcare reporting ransomware attacks and 61% of consumers unaware of increasing cyberattacks in healthcare, the need for a comprehensive solution is evident.
The Armis Platform for Healthcare
