"the company can't update devices directly"
This puts the accountability back on the healthcare providers that are providing these devices. Unfortunately, in many cases such as this I noticed that the HCP is slow to react historically.

Connected devices
Experts worry about the implications for connected medical devices, which could provide attackers with a gateway into a hospital network or enable them to affect patient care. Obviously connected devices in an hospital settings will have the same risk level as all other places. It may be more fatal unfortunately.

Affected devices
For hospitals, the challenging part is finding those affected devices," says Luz. If you're responsible for security at a hospital with 10,000 connected products of different models and vendors, locating the vulnerable ones will be difficult. This would be almost impossible unless devices somehow scan able remotely.

Updates and repairs
This could prove tricky, he notes, as medical devices are critical and may not be available for updates at any time. Yes. All these devices should get updates remotely. Maybe having spares so no need to wait for the repairs.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
Most definitely and I think they should continue to prioritize health objectives ahead of security when medical devices can save lives. But there still needs to be security in mind because if not then those same devices could be used to cause harm.

Re: Affected devices
With the sheer number of devices you would need them to check into a hub locally and then check in remotely. Either way thats going to be heavy on network throughput.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
