In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

The current pandemic has proven that Medigate is a necessary business solution to ensure protection, security and efficiency for all patients and stakeholders in the hospital. As cyberattacks increased, Medigate worked tirelessly to protect its hospital partners from these threats, but also provided real-time visibility and understanding of where all devices existed on the network – insights that were further leveraged to locate critical equipment and make improved care decisions.

Integrated in over 600 facilities worldwide, Medigate provides the types of insights and capabilities that allow decision makers to employ data-validated processes to their most pressing concerns whether that’s securing devices on the hospital network or locating missing assets needed for patient care. No matter a health delivery organization’s (HDO) priority, Medigate is able to seamlessly enjoin workflow and security to work alongside clinicians and hospital staff, rather than hinder their progress.

As an example of these capabilities, a new customer was ready to submit a $1.7M purchase order for medical equipment in preparation for the influx of patients. After deploying Medigate, they confirmed they had the needed equipment, not visible through the former manual inventory processes and averted an unnecessary spend. As another example, Torrance Memorial Hospital deployed the platform to contend with Urgent/11 vulnerabilities. Using Medigate, Torrance was able to develop and implement strategies based on potential risk to patients. 19% more connected medical devices were discovered and profiled than estimated;
-26% more non-medical IoT devices were discovered and profiled than estimated;
Consistent with Medigate's claims, device profiles included make, model, MAC and IP addresses, serial number, location, status and security posture.
-Notably, firmware-level-details, including configuration-specifics such as OS and application versions were provided;
-In addition to Urgent/11 questions, vulnerabilities across Torrance Memorial's entire connected inventory were identified and remediation recommendations implemented

Brief Overview

Medigate leads the market with its technology and expertise. As the first company to provide a dedicated healthcare IoT and medical device security platform, it ensures full visibility of network connected devices. Our healthcare focus solves problems for healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) beyond the detection and protection offered by others. We address the risk management concerns of the security analysts, network-centric prevention for IT security, superior clinical detection and response for the SOC, and clinical asset optimization for clinical engineering. Together this provides a holistic approach to network security and managing connected devices.

Medigate’s industry-leading innovation lies in how the platform is:
-Healthcare Centric: With its 100% healthcare focus and deep domain expertise of more than two million medical devices, engineering clinical workflows, identification of use cases and technology development, Medigate’s team evaluates data and protocols to create customized solutions for hospitals.
-Granularity of Discovery/Profiling. Medigate is the only platform that uses deep packet inspection to identify thousands of devices and decode over 85 proprietary healthcare IoT protocols, for greater insight into network communication profiles.

This includes:
-Clinical-contextual Risk Management Framework and Integrated Threat Intel
-Communication policy recommendations out of the box
-Robust Technology Integrations: R&D exceeds standard surface-level integrations with NAC, firewall, SIEM, vulnerability management and network administration products, and clinical asset management systems.
-Utilization metrics used by operational stakeholders
