Fingerprint biometrics increase data security
In an era of greater security risk and increasing regulation, more healthcare organizations are implementing strong authentication to protect their data and meet regulatory compliance demands. Of the broad variety of strong authentication device options, fingerprint biometric authentication provides maximum security and unparalleled user convenience. Fingerprint biometrics are highly reliable because they cannot be easily faked, altered or misappropriated. But implementing a biometric fingerprint solution as part of a multifactor authentication platform can be a challenge, and managing this technology can be complex and expensive. For healthcare organizations seeking a user authentication and identity access management solution that simplifies the use of fingerprint biometrics and multifactor authentication, Imprivata has the answer.
