NEW YORK—Aug. 31, 2020—Medigate, a dedicated medical device security and asset management solution firm, today announced it has been selected as a finalist for the 2020 American Cyber Awards in the category: “Best Security Company of the Year – Under 150 Staff.”
The American Cyber Awards were established to shine a spotlight on the most innovative and successful people, teams and products in cybersecurity in America. The American Cyber Awards reviews the industry, searching for those who are pushing the boundaries in the fight against cyber crime. Companies who are committed to progressing the industry, are reviewed by judges that come from varied backgrounds, and are some of the most well-regarded individuals within the industry. They will review all applications, deciding winners collectively at a judging day.
“The healthcare industry is under attack from cyber criminals who are targeting the network vulnerabilities caused by IoT devices connecting to the network. And with the pandemic driving an increase in remote or telehealth options, these threats are on the rise,” said Jonathan Langer, CEO and cofounder of Medigate. “Now, more than ever, we need robust technology to not only protect medical devices, but all connected endpoints in the hospital environment and beyond. This recognition from the American Cyber Awards demonstrates that our message is resonating with key industry players and we’re thrilled with the opportunity to further spotlight the vital role that cybersecurity plays in the healthcare space. ”
Organizer Christina Price said, “This is the inaugural year for these awards, and we have been overwhelmed with the number, and quality of entrants. Those companies and individuals who have made the shortlist, should be pleased with their achievement as the competition to do so was tough. I know the judges are going to have a hard time selecting the overall winners.”
