Barcelona, Spain – October 26, 2011 – Today at Citrix Synergy Imprivata®, Inc., the #1 independent single sign-on and access management provider for healthcare and other regulated industries announced that Imprivata OneSign has been verified as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix. Imprivata OneSign completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix XenDesktop® and Citrix XenApp™, providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.
The Citrix Ready program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that Imprivata OneSign has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with XenDesktop and XenApp in order to provide secure No Click Access® to roaming desktops via a range of strong authentication methods, including ID badges, proximity cards and finger biometrics.
Through API-level integration with XenDesktop, Imprivata OneSign simplifies access to the users’ virtual desktops and applications with the tap of a card or the touch of a finger. By combining authentication management and single sign-on with XenDesktop, users can significantly reduce the time it takes to access sensitive data as they move throughout their working day. This functionality is particularly well suited to healthcare, where No Click Access to Protected Health Information (PHI) speeds complex clinical workflows, enabling physicians and other caregivers to spend less time typing passwords and more time seeing patients. Support for Imprivata Secure Walk-Away® and Self Service Password Management further improves security of information accessed through XenDesktop and XenApp environments and reduces helpdesk costs.
“We are pleased to have Imprivata join us in the Citrix Ready program,” said Joe Keller, vice president of alliance and community marketing at Citrix Systems, Inc. “Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable virtualization infrastructure products for their specific needs. By taking part in our program, Imprivata has enabled our joint customers to obtain the highest quality user experience, and the simplest means for making an informed product purchasing decision.
“We see strong demand for fast, secure access to virtual desktops, particularly in highly mobile industries such as healthcare, where instant access to patient information is critical to improving patient care and meeting government mandates,” said Geoff Hogan, SVP Business Development at Imprivata. “As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to meet those demands by offering customers innovative solutions that combine OneSign’s No Click Access with the roaming capabilities of XenDesktop and XenApp.”
