Imprivata OneSign for the energy industry

Meet NERC CIP cybersecurity standards

Many organizations in the energy sector fall under mandatory cyber security requirements set by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) regulations. Imprivata OneSign helps energy companies protect their critical assets and meet relevant regulatory requirements, all with less effort and lower costs.

That's precisely what Imprivata’s solutions are doing for energy companies like British Energy, Westar Energy, Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Company, and more. We can do the same for your organization.

Manage passwords

Your company needs to meet and document its compliance with CIP standards. But password sprawl and complexities around user authentication can make compliance a difficult, time-consuming and expensive task. 

Imprivata delivers the capabilities your organization needs to simplify the process. Easy to deploy and manage, Imprivata OneSign Single Sign-On works with all enterprise applications, and makes accessing applications simple, fast and easy for users.

Imprivata OneSign doesn't involve custom scripting, changes to existing directories, or inconvenient workflow changes — instead, it provides integrated support for multiple, strong authentication methods and enables centralized management password policies. Imprivata OneSign also includes robust reporting capabilities that capture every user's log-in history, making it quick and easy to track compliance and produce the necessary reports.

Increase security

To ensure user authenticity and restrict unauthorized access, CIP compliance requires strong controls at the entry points to electronic security perimeters. That's where the Imprivata OneSign Authentication Management solution comes in, replacing the MS Windows login with a broad range of powerful authentication devices. These can be mixed and matched for easy and secure access on any network. Options include:

  • Integrated management of one-time-password (OTP) tokens
  • Fingerprint biometrics
  • Smartcards

Embrace digital transformation

As technology evolves, organizations need a cloud-enabled solution that transforms slow, repetitive, and error-prone logins into fast, secure, and reliable access into a broad ecosystem of devices and applications, including technologies that are on-premises or in the cloud. By seamlessly integrating regulatory compliance and security into end-user workflows, organizations can confidently meet strict regulatory and compliance demands, and bolster their approach to data security without disrupting the end-user experience.
