Cyber Security Recommendations for
Sonomed Escalon Ultrasound Systems
Ophthalmic ultrasound systems are medical devices that, like other computer systems, can be vulnerable to security breaches, potentially impacting the safety and effectiveness of the device. This vulnerability increases as medical devices are increasingly connected to the Internet, hospital networks, and to other medical devices.
As a device manufacturer, Sonomed Escalon takes seriously its responsibility to provide devices which are as effective as possible at mitigating risks associated with cyber security. We strongly implore our clients to similarly take actions to evaluate their network security and the security of standalone devices.
Information and recommended practices are provided within user manuals. The Wanna Cry ransomware attack has heightened these concerns and, as such, Sonomed Escalon is providing a centralized location for related information on this website. Below are recommendations for cyber security for each Sonomed Escalon ophthalmic ultrasound device.
