Imprivata and Microsoft to unveil digital ID solutions

Imprivata, a digital identity company for healthcare, today announced the availability of two of its flagship digital identity solutions on Microsoft Azure. The expansion of Imprivata OneSign and Imprivata Confirm ID to the cloud fortifies the company’s focus on advancing digital transformation efforts for healthcare organizations looking to enhance security and clinical efficiency with cloud scalability. Additionally, it builds on Imprivata’s existing collaboration with Microsoft, which include its identity governance solution for Microsoft Azure and Healthcare Seamless SSO, among others.

“We’re pleased to extend our digital identity capabilities to the cloud while deepening our partnership with Microsoft,” said Gus Malezis, CEO at Imprivata. “Through Imprivata OneSign and Confirm ID, healthcare organizations can securely and conveniently access clinical applications and patient information both inside and outside of the hospital, and from any device, so they can focus on what matters most: delivering high quality patient care.”

With a simple badge-tap or fingerprint scan, Imprivata OneSign for Microsoft Azure enables healthcare organizations to deliver SSO from any device and any location for every end-user, with fast and secure access to on-premises, legacy, and SAML 2.0 cloud apps from private or shared workstations, virtual desktops, and mobile devices.

Imprivata Confirm ID provides comprehensive identity proofing, credential enrollment, and recordkeeping to meet DEA requirements for EPCS while delivering fast, secure, and seamless multifactor authentication for all workflows via flexible options such as Hands-Free Authentication, push token notifications, and biometrics.

“This latest collaboration with Imprivata takes us one step further in our continued push to help healthcare advance its digital transformation journey through tight integrations that fit the unique needs of our hybrid healthcare customers,” said Randy Nale, Director, US Healthcare Industry Solutions at Microsoft. “We look forward to working with Imprivata as we continue to innovate to provide joint digital identity solutions that are purpose-built for hybrid healthcare.”

The solutions are available now via Imprivata or, as a managed-service offering, from its partner, Coretek Services, a systems integration, IT consulting, and managed services firm. Coretek CTO Brian Barnes said, “Coretek’s strategic partnership with Imprivata and ‘born in the cloud’ service offerings combine the power of Microsoft Azure for agility, security, and scale.”

Imprivata’s launches Digital Identity Maturity Assessment Tool

Imprivata’s launches Digital Identity Maturity Assessment Tool

Imprivata, a digital identity company for healthcare, today introduced its digital identity maturity assessment, a new tool that helps health delivery organizations (HDOs) identify critical protections missing from their digital identity strategy. The assessment tool, combined with an intelligent roadmap toward identity maturity, bolsters every modern HDO’s identity and access management (IAM) strategy by ensuring robust security, compliance, and efficiency across the healthcare environment.

“Imprivata is responding to a critical and urgent ask from CISOs, CIOs, and other IT security and compliance leaders across the healthcare industry: healthcare IT vendors must deliver more secure, scalable, and agile ways to onboard, authorize, and authenticate on-the-go clinicians, remote users, and shifting workforces,” said Gus Malezis, CEO at Imprivata. “Our new assessment tool arms healthcare IT leaders with the critical insights needed to ensure a cohesive approach to designing, building, and managing their digital identity framework.”

Healthcare delivery organizations have evolved into highly complex environments with many users and roles, locations, devices, and applications. More users with different roles need access to a wider variety of applications from any device and any location; access that must be secure but efficient. And, the proliferation of cloud apps, connected devices, and an increasingly decentralized workforce has eroded the once well-defined network perimeter. In this new ecosystem, digital identity is the anchor of an effective security strategy whereby organizations can solve their critical workflow, security, and compliance challenges.

The new assessment tool identifies gaps in the HDO’s digital identity strategy using ten highly focused questions relative to four key areas: governance and administration, identity management, authorization, and authentication and access. After taking the assessment, the user receives a custom report capturing their organization’s maturity level in each of the four categories, with insights to assist in reaching the goal of full digital identity maturity, and therefore heightened security.

“To compete in today’s healthcare marketplace, HDOs must have full confidence that their digital identity strategy is strong enough to position their organization for success,” said Wes Wright, CTO at Imprivata. “Imprivata’s new assessment tool provides an informed starting point for understanding where the healthcare organization is, along with the areas needed to craft a solid strategy that shields their environment from threats and disruption.”

Imprivata predicated its maturity assessment tool on the company’s proprietary digital identity framework – a security-and efficiency-focused blueprint to guide every HDO’s strategy for managing digital identities across complex ecosystems and planning a robust and usable IAM scheme.
