Arxan Protects Pacemaker Medical Device
The advancement of cloud and mobile technologies have transformed the way medical devices are accessed and data is shared with patients and medical practitioners. As a pioneer in the medical device market and one of the largest, global medical device manufacturers, this organization was leading the charge producing new medical device applications. They realized, however, that there were new risks that were unique to mobile applications; particularly given the significant increase in the volume of patient data for physicians and patients that applications were sending to apps on mobile devices. For this reason, they embarked on a strategy to harden their high-risk medical applications – starting first with all of their Class III medical devices that connect to mobile apps. Arxan was selected as their app protection partner, and now protects key applications, including those that monitor and control pacemakers.
