It’s not a long walk from hacking into hospital records to hacking into medical devices themselves. Over the past 2-3 years, a number of “white hat” hackers have demonstrated vulnerabilities in networked devices…including pacemakers, infusion pumps, and many more.
Security vulnerabilities may be introduced when software is translated (“localized”) into other languages. For this reason, it is critical to consider state-of-the-art software tools and robust testing as part of your overall localization effort.
TransPerfect Medical Device Solutions can help – our localization tools are in use with 80% of the world’s large software developers and our dedicated testing facilities in Boulder, CO ensure the most rigorous post-localization scrutiny.
