Imprivata Named Winner of Three Coveted Global InfoSec Awards during RSA Conference 2024

Imprivata wins multiple awards for state-of-the-art Passwordless Authentication and biometrics solutions in 12th Annual Global InfoSec Awards at #RSAC 2024

Waltham, Mass. May 15, 2024 – Imprivata, the digital identity company for life- and mission-critical industries, today announced that it has won three awards from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. Imprivata was recognized for its achievements in Biometrics, Healthcare IoT Security, and Passwordless Authentication.

As more organizations leverage shared device ecosystems to enable an increasingly mobile workforce, the attack surface has rapidly expanded and increased the risk for cybercriminals to breach credentials and enter the system. Unauthorized access to enterprise-owned mobile devices leads to more than half (54%) of organizations experiencing a data breach, according to recent research from the Ponemon Institute. Recognizing that security can be compromised when users access systems and information via workarounds or shared credentials, Imprivata has focused on harnessing the power of digital identity, with innovation including facial biometrics and passwordless authentication to streamline access while bolstering organizational security.

“Imprivata is dedicated to developing solutions that address the unique challenges of critical industries, like healthcare, and we’re thrilled to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine for the third consecutive year,” said Fran Rosch, CEO of Imprivata. “Addressing complex security, workflow, and compliance challenges requires continued innovation. It has been inspiring to see our customers leverage these award-winning solutions to increase productivity while improving security, specifically through the use of facial biometrics for accurate patient identification, mobile access management for device usability and optimization, and streamlined authentication for simple and secure access across on-premises and shared device ecosystems.”

The awards are judged by CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of each submission. With the awards, CDM seeks innovative players with new and unique technologies, best of breed, and next generation InfoSec solutions.

“Imprivata embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

The EHR Exclusive: Why you can't afford to let your EHR become a drain on IT resources

In today's healthcare landscape, organizations face resource constraints, budget challenges, and the rising threat of cyberattacks – and together, these issues have a negative synergy that makes them even more worrying.

For example, 74% of cybersecurity workforce leaders feel that staffing shortages put their organizations at a moderate to extreme risk of cyberattack.

All this can make implementing a new system or optimizing an existing EHR system daunting. But organizations don’t have to let that deter them. With the right help and preparation, an EHR can be a lifesaver – just as it’s intended to be – not a burden.

A Catalyst for Change: How the Change Healthcare Attack Could Do Just That

If you were struggling to swim in treacherous waters with a lifeguard standing nearby, you would expect them to dive in and save you…but what if they didn’t? The results could be disastrous or end up costing your life.

The healthcare industry’s threat landscape is as concerning for patients and providers as that ocean would be for the strongest of swimmers. Yet, we’ve witnessed the federal government behave like a negligent lifeguard when it comes to ensuring the continuity of our public health system, as healthcare organizations struggle to stay afloat and fend off these threats with little budget, lack of clear guidance, and minimal resources to do so.
