Without a tool that reacts specifically to the distinct nuances of each medical device, it is impossible to properly protect and secure IoMT devices connected to a hospital’s network. Just as an auto repairman is not equipped to fix an ailing heart, hospitals and health systems should not depend on generic IoT solutions that require more effort than necessary and lack the context required to ensure proper IoMT security.
