"Imprivata has a strong, continually growing presence in the healthcare industry and Hackensack University Medical Center's choice further validates that we are the authentication management and single sign-on solution of choice for this market," explained Omar Hussain, president and CEO, Imprivata. "We look forward to assisting the hospital on future initiatives such as the integration with provisioning and ultimately incorporating Imprivata's physical/logical capabilities."
The first phase of this project will include the addition of proximity badges which enable clinicians and physicians to automatically log on and off computers in examination rooms. Since OneSign SSO integrates seamlessly with numerous critical applications including provisioning and context management solutions, it will play an integral part in the hospital's overall security posture as the IT staff rolls out new identity management initiatives in future phases including the integration of its physical and logical security solutions.
