Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) for Enhanced Healthcare

Internet of Medical Things

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has revolutionized healthcare by enhancing efficiency and accuracy through smart medical devices. These devices empower healthcare professionals to improve patient care and optimize healthcare services. However, leveraging the benefits of IoMT comes with significant risks. Effectively managing these risks is critical for maintaining operational continuity and ensuring patient safety. Despite this awareness, healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) often struggle with IoMT risk management. Here are four key reasons contributing to these challenges:

  • Insufficient Authentication: Inadequate authentication mechanisms can leave IoMT devices vulnerable to unauthorized access and potential breaches.
  • Incompatibility with Agents: IoMT devices may face compatibility issues when integrating with existing security agents and systems, limiting their ability to detect and respond to threats effectively.
  • Limited Context: Gaining a comprehensive understanding of IoMT device behavior and context is crucial for identifying anomalies and potential risks.
  • Lack of Risk Awareness: Many HDOs struggle with fully comprehending the risks associated with IoMT, hindering their ability to implement effective risk management strategies.

To address these challenges, Sepio Asset Risk Management (ARM) platform offers a comprehensive solution. It automatically enforces specific hardware usage through granular access controls defined by system administrators. Sepio’s ARM platform provides unmatched visibility into known and shadow assets, leveraging physical layer data sources to mitigate asset risks. With Sepio, HDOs gain a new dimension of asset visibility. Empowering them to manage IoMT risks effectively.
