Securing Medical Devices Means Securing Networks
The most important thing to understand about all of this is that any device on a network is a potential vulnerability waiting to be taken advantage of by someone who knows what they're doing, especially if the latest security updates for that IOT device are overlooked.
When medical technology companies run outdated software or unsupported legacy apps, they're essentially leaving an open door for anybody to walk through, especially today when nearly one million new malware threats emerge every single day. When older apps are no longer receiving patches and updates from their original vendor, they are easy, wide-open target for a breach, which in turn renders your network exposed as well.
