Toshiba is First MR Manufacturer to Meet Network Security Guidelines of U.S. Department of Defense

August 26, 2014 — Toshiba America Medical Systems’ MR (magnetic resonance) systems have received approval to operate (ATO) with the U.S. Air Force. This makes Toshiba the only manufacturer to have fully certified MR systems (Vantage Titan 1.5T and Vantage Titan 3T) for use on the Air Force Network. This follows the recent Air Force ATO for Toshiba’s CT (computed tomography) systems.

By achieving ATO status, Toshiba met the Air Force and Defense Health Agency’s (DHA) Platform Information Technology (PIT) guidelines for ensuring protection of patient health information and guarding against malware, viruses and malicious attacks. To meet these requirements, Toshiba enhanced its MR platform to include Microsoft Windows 7 and application whitelisting software to proactively identify and prevent viruses and malicious solicitations.

“Toshiba understands its customers’ business and makes data security one of its highest priorities,” said Beverly Plost, director, MR Business Unit, Toshiba. “This approval is proof that when a customer partners with Toshiba, they are getting the same protection and security expected by our nation’s armed forces.”
