Imprivata OneSign for the Energy Industry
Meet NERC CIP Cyber Security Standards
Many organizations in the energy sector fall under mandatory cyber security requirements set by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) regulations. Imprivata OneSign® helps energy companies protect their critical assets and meet relevant regulatory requirements, all with less effort and lower costs.
That's precisely what Imprivata’s solutions are doing for energy companies like British Energy, Westar Energy, Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Company and more. We can do the same for your organization.
Your company needs to meet and document its compliance with CIP standards. But password sprawl and complexities around user authentication can make compliance a difficult, time-consuming and expensive task.
Imprivata delivers the capabilities your organization needs to simplify the process. Easy to deploy and manage, Imprivata OneSign® Single Sign-On works with all enterprise applications, and makes accessing applications simple, fast and easy for users.
OneSign doesn't involve custom scripting, changes to existing directories, or inconvenient workflow changes — instead, it provides integrated support for multiple, strong authentication methods and enables centralized management password policies. OneSign also includes robust reporting capabilities that capture every user's log-in history, making it quick and easy to track compliance and produce the necessary reports.
To ensure user authenticity and restrict unauthorized access, CIP compliance requires strong controls at the entry points to electronic security perimeters. That's where the Imprivata OneSign Authentication Management solution comes in, replacing the MS Windows login with a broad range of powerful authentication devices. These can be mixed and matched for easy and secure access on any network. Options include:
- Integrated management of one-time-password (OTP) tokens
- Fingerprint biometrics
