Joint Solution with Hytec meets NHS N3 Security and Compliance Requirements for Connected Products.
Axeda, the leading provider of cloud-based services for building and deploying Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced a set of technology and services that enable medical product manufacturers to deploy their connected products at hospitals and health care organizations in England and in doing so achieve compliance with the National Health Service (NHS) N3 network guidelines for the protection of machine data. Developed with Hytec, part of OLM Systems, Ltd., the N3 solution reduces the cost and complexity associated with connecting to the NHS network in a secure and compliant manner, and enables manufacturers to focus their time and efforts on their core business and on the development of new value-added services.
The NHS requires compliance with clearly defined Department of Health standards and guidelines together with Data Protection legislation by applying Information Governance and IT security standards to the N3 network. The N3 Network is the private NHS national network linking hospitals, medical centers, and GPs in England, and is one of the largest Virtual Private Networks in Europe. The Axeda and Hytec N3 Solution is based on technology and services from each company. The solution supports Axeda agents and connected products via the NHS N3 Network. Hytec provides a hosting environment for the Axeda solution that meets the IT security and information governance requirements demanded by the NHS. Hytec also works with medical device manufacturers to ensure that they also meet the security and governance requirements of the NHS.
The Axeda and Hytec solution is in general availability and currently deployed by Axeda customers in England. To see a webinar video explaining the Axeda and Hytec solution, go to Axeda Hytec Webinar Video. To learn more about the components of the solution go to Axeda for N3Networks.
