October 3, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--Zingbox, the provider of the most widely deployed healthcare Internet of Things (IoT) analytics platform, recently announced that co-founder and CTO Dr. May Wang will speak at MD Expo, the health technology management (HTM) industry’s most distinctive networking event, in Seattle October 5-7. The company will also be exhibiting in booth 213 on the expo floor.

Wang will join Ralph Oliva, cybersecurity and clinical engineering services manager at BayCare, a Zingbox customer, to present “Ensuring the Security and Operations of Connected Medical Devices — a 12-Month Journey” on Saturday, October 6, at 11:30 a.m.

Healthcare providers face unique challenges to stay on top of connected medical device inventory, ensure their uninterrupted service through cyberattacks, and optimize their ongoing maintenance. As a leading healthcare provider serving the Gulf Coast of Florida, BayCare has faced many of these challenges. Wang and Oliva will review the various processes implemented and solutions deployed to achieve reliable insight into the medical device inventory as well as the ongoing well-being of the medical devices.

“Many organizations are hoping to learn from other healthcare providers’ experience on how they secured their connected medical devices utilizing best practices and netting proven results. Such guidance, however, has proven elusive,” said Wang. “We are excited to partner with BayCare to share details on how providers are successfully tackling the challenge of device security, from strategy to execution, leveraging the latest breakthroughs in artificial intelligence technology.”

Visitors to Zingbox booth 213 will get an in-depth look at Zingbox’s flagship product, IoT Guardian. IoT Guardian uses machine learning for asset discovery, risk assessment, baselining the normal behavior of devices, and discovery of threats. This intuitive, intelligent solution builds deep knowledge of each individual device’s behavior, enabling it to automatically sense, identify and classify connected devices. Unlike traditional endpoint security products, IoT Guardian is non-intrusive and eliminates the need to install and manage software agents on each device.
