Imprivata experienced a record-breaking year in 2010, punctuated by several prestigious awards and first place ratings from leading industry organizations. These honors underscore our dedication to providing customers and partners with exceptional technology and services, and help to further define Imprivata as the leader in single sign-on (SSO) and access management. We are extremely proud of these accolades, and wanted to share with you a few of the high points from 2010:

  • Imprivata received a Strong Positive rating in the Gartner 2010 Marketscope for Enterprise Single Sign-on. Strong Positive is the highest possible Marketscope rating and a vendor rated as such is viewed to be a provider of strategic products, services or solutions. Gartner advises current customers to continue with planned investments, and potential customers to consider a vendor in this category as a strong choice for strategic investments.
  • KLAS, the healthcare industry’s leading independent research firm, conducts more than 1,900 healthcare provider interviews per month, working with more than 4,500 hospitals and more than 3,000 doctor’s offices and clinics.

This first annual list recognizes the most important health care technology vendors with indirect channel programs or direct relevance to the channel. CRN touted Imprivata’s ability to simplify the way clinicians securely access patient and diagnostic information.

Overall, the theme was consistent for a majority of the awards bestowed upon Imprivata.

Additionally, Imprivata was recognized for helping hospitals to strike a critical balance between information security, user productivity and return on IT investment.
