CLEVELAND, March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Certified Security Solutions, Inc. (CSS) introduces the next generation in medical device security, CMS VerdeTTo™, at the HIMSS 2018 Conference March 5-9 in Las Vegas.

Medical IoT scenarios pose security risks on multiple fronts. First, connected records systems containing personal information are lush targets for identity thieves. Compromising a medical device and using it as a network beachhead could result in a breach of patient records. Second, with life and death scenarios on the line, attackers could exert control over dependent medical equipment, with potentially fatal results.

Internet of Things (IoT) security for the healthcare industry begins with building a foundation of unique identity and trust. It is maintained by the ability to securely update medical devices throughout their complete lifecycle, as required by the FDA's Postmarket Management of Cyber Security in medical devices. CSS has a rich history of partnering with businesses to provide the next generation in medical device security using software and managed services.

CMS VerdeTTo™ establishes trusted identity for medical devices, providing complete device identity lifecycle management, and offers the following advantages for your healthcare IoT ecosystem:
