Security (2020)

Nearly 70 percent of medical devices will be connected or connectable to a health care system network by the end of 2025, according to Deloitte. This year, Medigate has emerged as one of the clear leaders providing security for IoT medical tech. The company has partnered with Microsoft and VMware to provide hospitals with greater visibility into their clinical data and to uncover network vulnerabilities.

Alphabet, Stanford, Kleiner Perkin, and EY are early investors in a technology helping provide the foundation for next-gen biometric verification.
