Imprivata Extends OneSign’s Identity Management Capabilities with Integration with IBM Tivoli Identity Manager

Integration Enables Customers to Combine Authentication and Access Management with Popular Provisioning Solution for Holistic Identity-Centric Security

LEXINGTON, MA - January 26, 2009 - Imprivata®, Inc., the converged authentication and access management company announced that its appliance-based OneSign® Platform has achieved certified integration status with IBM Tivoli Identity Manager. This integration enables customers to benefit from the easy-to-use, easy-to-manage OneSign solution with integrated user provisioning from Tivoli Identity Manager for improved security and efficient management of user credentials from an employee’s first day to last day.

“Day-one productivity for new employees is important, especially in today’s economic environment, but security must not be compromised in the rush to get team members up and running quickly,” said Omar Hussain, president and CEO of Imprivata. “Partnering with IBM and integrating OneSign with the Tivoli Identity Manager provides organizations with a popular provisioning option to manage user credentials while providing secure and efficient access to facilities, networks and applications for employees.”

Integrating single sign-on (SSO) with user provisioning provides greater network security, improved user and IT administrator productivity and a dramatic reduction in password reset requests to the help desk. The integration between the Imprivata OneSign platform and Tivoli Identity Manager allows:

• Users and their network and application credentials to be automatically provisioned and de-provisioned in OneSign Single Sign-On, eliminating the need to issue passwords to new users
• Instant first day single sign-on to applications and last day lock down of all network and application access

The OneSign-Tivoli Identity Manager integration is the latest in a series of strategic provisioning partnerships enabling Imprivata to realize its vision of delivering enterprise customers with end-to-end user access solutions that are easy-to-use and easy-to-manage. Imprivata OneSign also integrates with provisioning solutions from Courion and Fischer International, and its standards-based Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) interface allows for easy integration with other third-party provisioning solutions as well.
