Medigate Acquired by Claroty
In a statement released January 10, Claroty said the deal would allow it to secure the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT) "by delivering unmatched visibility, protection, and threat detection for all connected organizations via one comprehensive solution."
Medigate, which is headquartered in New York’s Brooklyn borough, is known for creating the first security platform dedicated to healthcare IoT.
The company was founded in the summer of 2017 by Jonathan Langer, Itay Kirshenbaum, and Pini Pinhasov. Langer serves as the company's CEO, while Israel-based Kirshenbaum and Pinhasov fulfill the roles of vice president of research and development and vice president of product, respectively.
Since its creation, Medigate has scooped more than 40 industry awards, including the 2021 Best in KLAS for Healthcare IoT Security, the SINET Innovator Award, and Fast Company’s Most Innovative Company Award. It has also been listed in Forbes’ Top 20 IoT Start-Ups to Watch.
“By joining forces between Medigate and Claroty, we are forming the only cybersecurity company that can deliver a best-of-breed solution for all the critical assets across healthcare, industrial, and enterprise environments that comprise the XIoT,” said Langer.
