The healthcare industry is undoubtedly facing serious security challenges. As evidence, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported that more than 110 million patient health records were compromised in 2015. In addition, more than 80 percent of healthcare organizations fell victim to a cyberattack that compromised patient health records between 2014-2015. Given these circumstances, the need for effective two-factor authentication among healthcare organizations has never been more urgent.

Two-factor authentication is the ability to identify and authorize users through multiple factors rather than just a single password, which can easily be hacked. Imprivata Confirm ID™ is the comprehensive identity and multifactor authentication platform for remote access and clinical authentication workflows. Imprivata’s two-factor authentication methodology is designed to enhance security for both onsite and remote logins, allowing healthcare organizations to protect sensitive patient data without sacrificing staff productivity.

Last month, Confirm ID successfully completed the Citrix Ready Secure Remote Access program. The program was launched to identify and showcase products that are proven to smoothly integrate with Citrix and enhance secure remote access through extra layers of security. IT executives may reference the program to quickly and easily find and source secure remote access solutions, ultimately helping to protect organizations from theft of data, distributed denials of service (DDoS) and other security attacks that may be perpetuated via remote access.

As part of successful verification, Imprivata Confirm ID demonstrated the ability to consistently conform with, and support, the five security pillars of the program, including:

  • Identity and Access
  • Network Security
  • Application Security
  • Data Security
  • Monitoring and Response

The certification of Imprivata Confirm ID by the Citrix Ready Secure Remote Access program provides healthcare enterprises with a proven and reliable remote access security solution to meet the growing security needs required of modern healthcare. Through this partnership, Imprivata will help support 90 percent of the largest healthcare providers that rely upon Citrix products, including all of U.S. News & World Report’s best hospitals, to maximize IT efficiencies and security.
