Thirdwayv in the News

By Thirdwayv Dated: February 25, 2020

Recently, Thirdwayv made news by being featured in leading business periodicals including Health IT Outcomes and Today’s Medical Developments.

Health IT Outcomes invited Thirdwayv’s Vinay Gokhale to explain an insulin pump vulnerability that was recently flagged by the FDA. A flaw in the pump enabled it to be re-programmed for use with an unauthorized device to create a customized Type 1 diabetes treatment.  But the same flaw can be used to hijack these and other connected medical devices.  Published on Feb 10, 2020 on Health IT Outcomes:  https://www.healthitoutcomes.com/doc/eliminating-the-vulnerabilities-of-connected-medical-devices-0001

The key is a multi-layered “security by design” approach that is now significantly easier to implement using today’s third-party IoT solutions.
