Stock Yards Bank & Trust Co. Protects Critical Data with Imprivata OneSign
Provides Support for Biometric Access to Critical ITI Banking Applications; OneSign Manages Complex Password Environment
LEXINGTON, MA - February 9, 2009 -Imprivata®, Inc., the converged authentication and access management today announced that Stock Yards Bank & Trust Co. (NASDAQ: SYBT), has implemented the Imprivata OneSign® Platform to provide secure and compliant access to critical data in their ITI financial applications. OneSign was chosen for its ability to integrate with existing infrastructure and manage biometric authentication access to Fiserv loan application software.
Faced with a complex environment that required multiple passwords for employees to access critical applications to do their day to day jobs, Stock Yards Bank needed a solution that would strengthen security and increase employee productivity by reducing the multiple application passwords employees previously had to remember. After an exhaustive search, the company selected the OneSign appliance for its ability to manage their biometric implementation to existing financial services applications from ITI, Fiserv and Harland.
“Remembering multiple passwords was becoming a hindrance to our employees and impacting productivity – we needed to develop a secure environment, but one where our employees didn’t have to remember so many passwords they couldn’t do their jobs,” said Jim Condra, senior vice president and chief information officer, Stock Yards Bank. “Imprivata OneSign was the only solution that could manage biometric authentication, and One Time Password(OTP) token management, across all of our existing ITI applications, eliminating the need for network passwords.”
Imprivata’s OneSign Platform is a converged authentication and access management solution conveniently packaged in an affordable and secure purpose-built appliance. It seamlessly integrates strong authentication, application single sign-on, physical access control, user provisioning and event reporting to provide one enterprise-wide automated employee information access policy managed and enforced within a single, easy-to-use administrative framework. The platform offers an effective means to achieve compliance while solving password management problems, reducing IT help desk costs and improving user productivity and security. It also easily integrates with existing systems, leveraging and extending the value of security investments throughout the enterprise.
“Financial services organizations are under tremendous pressure to increase employee productivity to remain competitive – while strengthening security protocols to prevent against potentially devastating data breaches. Stock Yards Bank stands out among its peers for its ability to accomplish these goals simultaneously,” said Omar Hussain, president and CEO of Imprivata. “Financial organizations such as Stock Yards Bank continue to rely on OneSign for its ability to manage multiple forms of authentication, significantly strengthening security and increasing employee productivity by reducing passwords for application access.”
