Imprivata Named a 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award Winner

Recognition for work providing digital identity and authentication solutions for healthcare delivery organizations

Lexington, Mass. – June 16, 2021 — Imprivata®, the digital identity company for healthcare, today announced its recognition as a 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award winner in the Authentication & Identity category. The industry awards program identifies and rewards the world’s leading companies and products that are working to ensure the safety of data and electronic assets against the growing threat from cyber hackers.

Imprivata was singled out for its work providing digital identity solutions that secure and simplify workflows across the entire healthcare delivery ecosystem. These market-leading workflow security solutions stretch from the doctors and nurses in the operating room to CIOs, CISOs, and compliance officers in the executive suite. These solutions allow clinicians to spend more time with patients, as they no longer must sign in or transfer information every time they use a new device.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic challenged Imprivata to rapidly implement low-touch digital security and telehealth options so its customers could continue providing top-quality care. Imprivata solutions helped these organizations mitigate risk and manage their response to the pandemic. Imprivata adapted a range of digital identity strategies and solutions to the particular needs of each customer, ensuring seamless clinical workflows while improving security and maintaining compliance.

“We’re thrilled to have been recognized with this prestigious honor, and view this as validation of our ongoing work providing market-leading authentication and digital identity solutions to our healthcare customers around the world,” said Gus Malezis, CEO at Imprivata. “Protecting data is central to our digital identity framework at Imprivata, and we understand that our customers rely on us to help them safeguard their sensitive information. It’s crucial to remain vigilant and forward-thinking when it comes to cybersecurity.”

“We are so proud to name Imprivata as a winner in the 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Imprivata are critical to providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
