MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., August 14, 2019 /BusinessWire/ — Zingbox, provider of the world’s most widely deployed IoT security solution, today announced it was named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Medical Device Security in Q3 2019. The technology vendors and service providers included in the Constellation ShortList offer the key requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives.
Cyberattacks on Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and hospital networks are a real and growing threat. While stealthy theft of protected health information (PHI) remains a common tactic, many hackers are changing their aims to target disruption of services. Unfortunately, most connected medical devices cannot be protected via traditional IT security means, so healthcare providers find themselves at a severe disadvantage.

Zingbox is trusted by over 300 hospitals across the United States to monitor and protect their connected medical devices.
