Strengthens its cybersecurity portfolio through a distribution partnership with Medigate by Claroty across Australia and New Zealand
September 13, 2022 – Wavelink, the leading distributor of connected healthcare solutions, has announced a new distribution partnership with Medigate by Claroty, the cyber-physical systems protection platform for healthcare environments.
Medigate’s award-winning medical device security and asset management platform was developed specifically for the healthcare industry. It leverages the NIST Framework to integrate industry standards and best practices to help partners and their end customers manage their cybersecurity risks. The high value of medical records and the complex nature of securing many clinical devices on the network have driven a significant increase in ransomware attacks on the healthcare industry. These attacks are costly for the provider and can present a considerable risk to delivering critical healthcare services to patients.
The recent reforms to the SOCI Act in Australia highlight the importance of understanding an organisation’s attack surface and its vulnerabilities. This starts with knowing what’s on the network, the risk posture of each asset and the options available to remediate. The Medigate platform helps address this by providing unmatched visibility, protection, and threat detection across all cyber-physical systems in a healthcare environment. A centralised, dynamically risk-scored inventory captures all medical IoMT, OT, IoT and IT systems delivering a real-time, single source of truth for all connected devices that seamlessly integrates with your existing cyber toolset.
Ilan Rubin, CEO of Wavelink, said, “Adding Medigate to Wavelink’s portfolio adds a key building block that complements our existing health, mobility, and security offerings, providing partners and end customers with unmatched protection for their medical devices. As Fortinet’s APAC Distributor of the Year, we are uniquely positioned to leverage Medigate’s strategic global relationship with Fortinet and bring together three of the region’s leaders in healthcare technology.”
“The partnership with Medigate will also add significant value to the Connected Health business unit. These partners will be able to add Medigate to the already comprehensive technology portfolio that consists of multifunction devices and applications that let healthcare workers carry out their duties more safely, securely, and effectively in a hospital environment.”
Jason Payne, Head of Channels & Alliances, Claroty, ANZ, added, “This partnership reinforces our ongoing focus on expansion in the Aus/NZ region. We are excited about working with Wavelink and the opportunity to demonstrate the power of the Medigate platform.”
