CybersecuritySolutions to protect your medical equipment from cyber threats

In times of increasing cyberattacks, it is even more important to keep your medical equipment state-of-the-art and updated with the latest software to protect against cyber threats.*

Let Siemens Healthineers support you with personalized cybersecurity solutions. We offer various opportunities to improve the cybersecurity status of your installed equipment.

Ransomware
More than 1 in 4 (27%) healthcare IT employees admitted in 2018 they were aware of ransomware cybersecurity attacks to their employer within the past year.1

The easiest and most successful way to improve the cybersecurity of your installed base is to upgrade your equipment to the latest software version including Windows 10. Older Windows operating systems are no longer supported by Microsoft and therefore do not receive cybersecurity patches. Once your system is upgraded to Windows 10 it is enabled to receive the latest cybersecurity updates available.*

You can best receive cybersecurity updates when connected to the secure Smart Remote Services (SRS) infrastructure.

Software Upgrade
  • Software Upgrade2: If eligible, upgrade your existing system to the latest software platform to benefit from Windows 10, which has built-in cybersecurity features such as whitelisting.
  • Total System Upgrade2: A total System Upgrade gives you a new, state-of-the-art system that operates on Windows 10. It includes new software and hardware components – expanding your clinical capabilities and reducing your total cost of ownership.
  • Service Contracts: We offer a wealth of different service contracts that provide continued cybersecurity via built-in upgrade- and update features.3

 

If your installed base is not eligible for an upgrade or service contract, we offer another solution that could protect you:

Technical checklist and manual for IT admins: Our checklists and manuals for your IT landscape help you identify Windows 7-based medical devices so you can implement measures to protect your systems while maintaining operational capabilities.

In case none of these solutions fit to your individual case or your strategy, we also offer a replacement of the whole system. In addition to the latest cybersecurity technology coming with a new system, you can also benefit from an attractive buy-back value.

Individual solutions

There is no one-size-fits-all cybersecurity solution, which is why we offer complimentary and individual assessments for our customers called Asset Planning Sessions. Through this holistic approach, we analyze the cybersecurity status of your fleet, consult with you one-on-one, and offer various recommendations to protect your institution from potential outside threats.*
