In the fight to keep health data safe, every node on your network is a potential battlefield. The fight is easy to notice on the laptops, desktops, smart phones and tablets every time you get a notification a new update or patch has been sent out. But how easy is it to notice in the next theater of combat, the war to secure connected medical devices?
