SECURITY RISK Windows 7 operating system

Microsoft is severely limiting security support for Windows 7 beyond 2020. Since 80% of medical imaging devices run on unsupported operating systems1, this presents a significant security risk that Philips cybersecurity solutions can mitigate.


Sign up now for a free security assessment to find out if your Philips solutions still run Windows 7 or earlier. This assessment will help match you with a Philips offering that supports you to stay secure.

Comprehensive cybersecurity


At Philips, ‘Security Designed in’ is an end-to-end mindset: infusing security principles begins with product design and development through testing and deployment – and followed up with robust policies and procedures for monitoring, effective updates, and, incident response management. 


To make our products and services robust against cyber threats requires an unwavering commitment to risk assessment, and adherence to security based product development. It requires the fast deployment of security- enabling technologies (such as encryption and patch management) and continuous improvement. 


That is why we have chartered our Product and Solutions Security Program to create, implement and update comprehensive and practical approaches to meet customer requirements.

Cybersecurity risks are constantly evolving. No cybersecurity program can guarantee a virus free environment and other cyber vulnerabilities. Accordingly, while Philips cybersecurity programs offers a layer of mitigation against virus intrusions, it is not a guarantee against such occurrence. Philips disclaims all implied warranties of fitness for a particular purpose or merchantability as it relates to the cybersecurity service and make no guarantees. Moreover, customer shall remain solely liable for any virus intrusions to the extent arising from customer’s networks, customer’s client devices, (including desktops, laptops, tablets or phones) or non-Philips medical devices. 


Security updates sometimes must be validated not to cause clinical defects in the products before being applied to equipment. Cybersecurity updates must be subject to a Philips medical device validation process for patient safety reasons.  Security patches managed by Philips require the customer to make an uninterrupted connection to all equipment and that meets the bandwidth requirements for Philips to perform such process.


Philips cybersecurity programs are offered according to Philips Standard Service Terms and Conditions of Sale.
