Timesys Smart, Reliable and Secure Solutions for Medical Devices

Life-critical reliability. FDA compliance. Secure, interconnected, machine-to-machine (M2M) embedded systems. Real-time performance. Remote access and multi-dimension user interfaces. IoT. These are just some of the benefits and use cases Timesys addresses with its medical customers.

Timesys Vigiles can help you ensure your medical devices are more secure when they are released and maintain stronger security during deployment

Industry’s only SCA tools optimized for embedded open source, including Yocto, Buildroot, and Timesys Factory Linux, and open source package monitoring

Boosts security standard compliance: IEC 62304, FDA Premarket and Postmarket Security Guidance

Filter, triage, investigate and mitigate vulnerabilities based on your exact Software Bill of Materials (SBOM)

Medical device security is critical. A successful cybersecurity attack can put patients at risk, compromise health care outcomes and violate privacy laws.

Gone are the days when you could freeze your software at release and never touch it again. Device connectivity is now the norm, and hundreds of new vulnerabilities are uncovered every week, putting devices and customers at risk of compromise.

Timesys Vigiles is a Software Composition Analysis (SCA) and Linux/open source software vulnerability monitoring tool for embedded system security. Vigiles offers multiple security maintenance features that simplify compliance with the FDA’s cybersecurity guidance for medical devices. With Vigiles, your products will be more secure at release and stay secure throughout the lifecycle.
