Published by: Research Desk Released: Feb 05, 2021

How much risk are healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) taking on with the rapid increase of interconnected medical- and non-medical devices? How well are HDOs implementing segmentation strategies? What insights can be gleaned from analyzing HDO network traffic?

Here are a few of the report’s key findings:

  • Due to improper segmentation, 90% of segments with a medical device have a non-medical IT device, and 60% have non-medical IoT devices
  • Insecure protocols are in use, leading to the clear-text transmission of patient info
  • Healthcare equipment using default credentials resides alongside other IT and IoT equipment
  • The percentage of critical legacy systems running unsupported Windows versions has not changed since our 2019 healthcare report
