Turn Healthcare challenges into opportunities

With new technology come challenges and opportunities. The past few years has seen an acceleration of changes related to mobility and the use of the cloud, an explosion of new “things” (IoT) that can be controlled over the internet, and with it, an increase in cybercrime that takes advantage of these new technologies.

Internet of Things Make IoT Easy and secure with IoT security for Healthcare: Healthcare facilities are increasingly taking advantage of connected devices to improve outcomes and patient engagements. These IoT systems range from connected medical devices such as MRI and CT scanners, wearable medical devices and remote patient monitors, to video security cameras and electronic ID-enabled security doors.
