May 22, 2018 — Cybersecurity company Medigate unveiled its medical device cybersecurity app for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework. Medigate’s app will provide healthcare organizations with full visibility into the medical device inventory connected to their networks, as well as alerts to potential risks. With the capabilities of Medigate’s device security platform available via an app for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework, customers will benefit from a comprehensive security solution that identifies and secures connected medical devices.

Consuming cybersecurity innovations has become an arduous process. Organizations waste time deploying new sensors every time they want to collect a new piece of data and managing point products rather than improving security controls to stay ahead of attackers. The Palo Alto Networks Application Framework makes it easy to add new security capabilities quickly and efficiently. The framework extends the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, with a suite of APIs that developers can use to connect innovative apps with rich data, threat intelligence and enforcement points. Organizations gain immediate security value from apps developed by an open ecosystem of trusted innovators.

The Medigate app will utilize the data provided by the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework to fingerprint medical devices in a customer environment, safely enable fingerprinted devices via External Dynamic Lists, and correlate data to trigger alerts of suspicious medical device behavior.

“We are delighted to welcome Medigate to the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework developer community. The framework provides our customers with superior security through cloud-based apps developed by innovative security providers, large and small. Together, we are fueling innovation in the cybersecurity market with apps that are built rapidly, engineered on a common framework, and deliver unique value while solving our customers’ toughest security challenges,” said Lee Klarich, chief product officer, Palo Alto Networks

The Medigate Medical Device Cybersecurity App for Palo Alto Networks Application Framework is currently available to qualified customers. The Palo Alto Networks Application Framework is targeted for availability in August 2018 and will be available worldwide to customers who have purchased either Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls or Traps advanced endpoint protection and the Logging Service subscription.
