HOUSTON — April 9, 2019 — Zingbox, the provider of the most widely deployed healthcare Internet of Things (IoT) analytics platform, announced that co-founder and CTO Dr. May Wang will speak again this year at MD Expo, the health technology management (HTM) industry’s most distinctive networking event, in Houston April 11-13.
Dr. Wang will join Inhel Rekik, director of health technology security at MedStar Health, a Zingbox customer, to present “Implementing a Comprehensive Connected Medical Devices Security Plan—From Bleeding Edge Technology to Services” on Friday, April 12, at 8:00 a.m.
Healthcare providers face two daunting challenges in securing their connected medical devices: making sense of the latest cybersecurity technologies and implementing the services to use the new solutions effectively. As a leading healthcare provider serving more than a half-million patients each year in the Maryland and Washington, D.C., area, MedStar Health faced the same challenges. Their presentation will review the technology, processes and services employed by MedStar to secure their connected medical devices, simplify management and accelerate incident response.
“We are excited to partner with MedStar Health to share details on how providers are successfully tackling the challenge of device security — from strategy to execution — using the latest breakthroughs in artificial intelligence technology,” said Dr. Wang. “MD Expo provides an excellent opportunity for healthcare organizations to learn the best cybersecurity practices from each other, and we’re thrilled to be contributing our expertise again this year.”
Zingbox’s flagship product, IoT Guardian, uses machine learning for asset discovery, risk assessment and discovery of threats by baselining the normal behavior of connected devices. This intuitive, intelligent solution builds deep knowledge of each individual device’s behavior, enabling it to automatically sense, identify and classify connected devices. Unlike traditional endpoint security products, IoT Guardian is non-intrusive and eliminates the need to install and manage software agents on each device.
