Medigate Named To Fast Company’s Annual List Of The World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019

February 20, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 20, 2019--Medigate has been named to Fast Company ’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019.

The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world. Half of the companies on this year’s MIC 50 list are appearing for the first time.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO of Medigate. “This acknowledgement validates both the urgent need for medical device-specific security solutions and our company’s impact on the healthcare market in just under two years.”

Medigate fuses a deep understanding of clinical workflows, proprietary medical device protocols and unique industry requirements with the reality of today’s pandemic cyber security threats so providers can keep their patients and personal health information safe.

Over the last 18 months, Medigate’s clinical contextual medical device security platform has improved the way hospitals identify, detect and protect medical devices on their IoMT (Internet of Medical Things). With Medigate, HDOs (Healthcare Delivery Organizations) from small hospitals to large healthcare systems have identified more than 100,000 connected medical devices. The company recently announced a $15M Series A Funding close which is being used to accelerate growth across R&D, sales, marketing and customer success.

This year, Fast Company ’s editors and writers sought out groundbreaking businesses across 35 industries and every region. They also judged nominations received through their application process.

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company ’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

“Established players are showing the same kind of nimbleness that we’ve generally associated with startups,” said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March-April 2019) is now available online at https://www.fastcompany.com/MIC, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning February 27th. The hashtag is #fcmostinnovative.
