Medical devices, such as diagnostic tablet computers, heart rate monitors, and MRI scanners, are just as susceptible to malware as standard laptop computers. To protect medical devices, McAfee offers solutions that prevent unauthorized changes and keep devices malware-free.
McAfee Integrity Control locks down a medical device so only authorized executables and changes are allowed. This low-footprint solution protects against malware, unauthorized applications, and system changes. It also provides the ability to capture an audit trail of authorized changes, facilitating compliance and reporting. Only McAfee provides unique read/write protection for added data protection of field devices. With this feature, you can block the view and alteration of system data and configuration files from any other application other than the original creator of the data. For manufacturers of medical devices, McAfee offers these same capabilities with McAfee Embedded Security.
McAfee Firewall Enterprise is a next-generation firewall that restores control and protection to your network.
McAfee Network Security Platform is the industry’s most secure network intrusion prevention system (IPS). Backed by McAfee Labs, it protects customers on average 80 days ahead of the threat. It blocks attacks in real time, before they can cause damage, and protects every network-connected device. With Network Security Platform, you can automatically manage risk and enforce compliance — while improving operational efficiency and reducing IT efforts.
McAfee Integrity Control combines industry-leading whitelisting and change control technology, ensuring that only trusted applications run on fixed-function devices, such as point-of-service (POS) systems, ATMs, and kiosks.
McAfee Vulnerability Manager finds and prioritizes vulnerabilities and policy violations on your network. It balances asset criticality with vulnerability severity, enabling you to focus protection on your most important assets.
McAfee Embedded Control focuses on solving the problem of increased security risk arising from the adoption of commercial operating systems in embedded systems. Embedded Control is a small-footprint, low-overhead, application-independent solution that provides “deploy-and-forget” security.
The Security Connected framework enables healthcare providers to operate more successfully and securely in their complex, heterogeneous environments. This approach helps healthcare providers take charge and secure sensitive data; safely embrace web portals, web services, and mobile devices; leverage situation awareness to better manage security incidents; and maintain compliance with strict industry mandates and regulations.
This report makes the case that industry must build security into healthcare devices and networks from the outset rather than as an afterthought.
McAfee offers a suite of products that work together to protect medical device installations. These solutions can be tied together and integrated with other security and IT systems through the open platform of McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software.
This white paper addresses the need for healthcare-friendly security as a means of minimizing the potential for data breaches while enabling its safe, transit, and storage of patient information in a clinical setting.
