Press for Imprivata

Imprivata, the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider for health care and other regulated industries, has been named a finalist in the Best Multifactor Product category in the 2011 SC Magazine Awards. Imprivata OneSign® was named as a premiere solution in the Reader Trust Award competition, which honors best-in-class security products and services.

Imprivata, the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider for health care and other regulated industries, today announced that KLAS, the health care industry’s leading independent research firm, has named Imprivata’s OneSign® the number one Single Sign-On (SSO) product in its “2010 Single Sign-On: To Identity Management and Beyond” report.

Monitoring user inactivity, and locking down a computer when the user forgets to, is the Holy Grail of PC security. It’s here.  The problem with inactivity has always been how to measure it. Keyboard presses, proximity cards, timers that ask you to re-verify your presence – all have major drawbacks (like inadvertently locking out your boss, or her boss) that inhibit their adaptation. The pain is increased each time the user needs to re-authenticate a locked session.

Imprivata®, Inc., the company that simplifies and secures user access, has been awarded the 2010 UK IT Industry Award for OneSign Secure Walk-Away™ in the category of ‘Security Innovation of the Year’. Released in March of this year, the solution protects unattended desktops from unauthorized access, streamlines employee workflow, and takes the burden of desktop security out of the hands of employees with automated protection. OneSign Secure Walk-Away has already experienced great traction in the UK, having been implemented by a number of hospitals within the country’s National Health Service (NHS). Not only has OneSign Secure Walk-Away proven to be beneficial in providing a solution to security challenges, but it also has addressed patient safety issues at a number of organisations.
