CLEVELAND, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As medical science advances, so does the equipment used to deliver care.

Putting medical devices on the network provides a large number of benefits, such as supporting telemedicine and the easy transfer of test results to electronic medical records (ERM) systems. However, putting these devices on a network also introduces a number of risks.
