Make biometric management easier with Imprivata


As companies work to improve data security, biometric authentication has become an important technology for controlling user access. Of the broad variety of employee access security authentication device options, fingerprint biometrics delivers strong authentication and user convenience. Fingerprint biometrics are highly reliable because users authenticate with something that is uniquely theirs - their fingerprints. Users enroll one or more fingerprints via a scanner. Thereafter, when logging in to the network, the user's finger is scanned and compared representative data to complete the authentication process into networks and applications and for transactions within applications.

Imprivata OneSign makes implementing a fingerprint biometrics solution, as part of a multifactor authentication system, or on its own, easy and affordable.

Whether looking for fingerprint biometrics authentication - where a user types his user name, and places their finger on the scanner, or fingerprint biometric identification - where a user just places his finger on the scanner for authentication, Imprivata's OneSign Authenication Management is your biometric management solution.


Imprivata OneSign - superior solutions for biometric management


Imprivata OneSign Authentication Management is an innovative identity management solution that provides a single framework for enabling policy with biometric management and management of other strong authentication technologies - used in conjunction with biometrics, or on their own. As an appliance-based approach, OneSign reduces the cost and complexity of biometric management right out of the box - it reduces implementation time, infrastructure needs and installation costs. It also reduces the burden of regulatory compliance by providing a central location for reporting access events across all biometric and strong authentication access events. OneSign Authentication Management provides native support for a range of strong multifactor authentication options that include:

  • One-Time-Password (OTP) tokens - including built-in management support for VASCO® DIGIPASS®
  • Fingerprint biometrics - including biometric management support for common solutions either external to or embedded in Lenovo, Dell, and other laptop PCs, tablet computers, etc., that incorporate the UPEK TouchStrip biometric scanner or Authentic biometric technology.
  • Proximity cards - active and passive
  • USB tokens
  • Smart cards - including Windows smart cards and national ID smart cards

OneSign simplifies biometric management reporting as well. By proving administrators with an real-time aggregated report of how, when, and from where users are accessing the network and applications. With access information instantly available in standardized reports, OneSign enables administrators to rapidly respond to audit inquiries that otherwise would involve manual viewing and collation of the logs from a variety of independent systems.


Deploy biometrics with single sign on
and improve end user satisfaction while enabling greater security


In addition to support for biometric management and other strong authentication options, the Imprivata OneSign platform includes OneSign Single Sign-On for:

Streamlined application access. OneSign solves password management user access issues by enabling SSO Access for all applications using the OneSign Application Profile Generator (APG)TM that provides administrators with an easy drag-and-drop interface that profiles all an applications' sign-on behaviors and dynamics to enable single sign-on for all enterprise applications. OneSign enables SSO without requiring scripting or modification to existing code. Users can access all their authorized applications after signing in with a single SSO password - or strong authentication device.

And Simplified Compliance Reporting. With OneSign SSO, enterprises can record all application access events in a centralized database and, at the push of a button, administrators can run any number of pre-structured or customized reports showing who is accessing what information, when and from where.
