Imprivata Announces OneSign Anywhere, Strong Authentication and Single Sign-On For Mobile Workers

New Appliance Combines Anytime, Anywhere, Authentication with Remote Access Compliance and Audit Capabilities

ORLANDO, FL. —February 21, 2011—At HIMSS11, Imprivata, the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries, today announced OneSign Anywhere, a new appliance that extends Imprivata OneSign®, the award-winning single sign-on (SSO) and authentication solution, with capabilities for remote and mobile workers. OneSign Anywhere® provides:

  • Anywhere, anytime, authenticated access to all enterprise and software-as-a-service (SaaS) web-based applications, without requiring employees to remember individual login credentials for each application
  • The ability to use a range of devices including iPads and smartphones for accessing applications – without requiring the installation of software on the device
  • Strong authentication and access control policies for security and compliance that are easy to manage and deploy

Authenticated Access Anywhere

OneSign Anywhere provides mobile employees, such as physicians, with secure access to the applications they need, when they are inside and outside the corporate firewall. While other remote SSO solutions require agent installs or downloads that create manageability and support challenges, OneSign Anywhere users simply launch a web browser with an Internet connection to gain authenticated SSO access to their corporate enterprise and web-based applications.

Fast and Secure Access from Any Device

The consumerization of IT is creating an explosion of new devices and new ways of working. Employees at home or on the go want to access corporate resources with their iPad, smartphone or personal PC. Users that enjoy the benefits of SSO while they are at work, are suddenly faced with having to manually enter credentials they may no longer use or remember, creating help desk calls and user frustration which enterprise SSO eliminates. With OneSign Anywhere, users can enjoy the same SSO experience from anywhere from a variety of unmanaged devices including Apple iPads and iPhones, Windows, Linux and MacOS devices giving them fast, secure access without requiring any agent installation or software on the client other than a browser.

Strong Authentication and Access Controls that are Easy to Manage and Deploy

OneSign Anywhere supports a number of strong authentication options including hardware tokens, soft tokens and phone-based authentication (PhoneFactor) to ensure only trusted users can access information and applications, and all existing access and authorization policies apply. OneSign Anywhere builds on the award winning Imprivata OneSign solution enabling IT to retain a single point of administration and compliance reporting.

“As more physicians use mobile devices to access EMRs, the issue of security has emerged as an even stronger consideration for healthcare IT executives. With OneSign Anywhere, physicians can move from location to location without the need to remember multiple passwords, enabling them to spend more time on patient care and less time remembering credentials.”
