Palo Alto Networks looks to shore up healthcare IoT security

Palo Alto Networks today rolled out a new Medical IoT Security offering, designed to  provide improved visibility, automated monitoring and more for hitherto vulnerable healthcare IoT frameworks, thanks to machine learning and adherence to zero trust principles.

Medical device security is a serious problem for most organizations in healthcare, with a long string of reported vulnerabilities in the area stretching back for years. Fundamentally, experts agree, a large part of the problem is that many connected devices being used in medicine were not originally designed for network connectivity. With that feature grafted on after the fact, rather than being designed in from the outset, unsafe default configurations, reliance on compromised code libraries and a host of other serious issues have continually arisen.
