Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access improves security by enabling two-factor authentication for remote network access, cloud applications, Windows servers and desktops, and other critical systems and workflows.
Imprivata Confirm ID also offers skip-second factor functionality as well as convenient authentication methods (such as push token notification) that can be used across workflows, allowing organizations to add a layer of security that is familiar, fast, and efficient for users.
With Imprivata Confirm ID, healthcare organizations can:
- Combat phishing and other attacks to improve security and safeguard against unauthorized access to patient records and other sensitive information
- Make security invisible to users with innovative and convenient authentication methods such as push token notification
- Streamline reporting and simplify authentication management with a single, centralized identity and authentication platform for all enterprise workflows
Introduction to Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access
Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access integrates seamlessly with leading VPNs and other remote access gateways to streamline the authentication management process and simplify multifactor authentication for remote access for employees. Gateways from Citrix, Cisco, Microsoft, VMware, and other leading providers are qualified in-house and come with gateway-specific documentation. Imprivata Confirm ID also supports any additional gateways that can connect via RADIUS for authentication.
Integration with Microsoft ADFS to protect cloud applications
Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access integrates with Microsoft ADFS to enforce two-factor authentication when users access cloud applications. This improves security as hospitals move PHI, employee data, financial records, and other sensitive information into the cloud.
Two-factor authentication for Windows servers and desktops
Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access enables two-factor authentication for administrator access to ensure only authorized users can access Windows desktops and servers. This safeguards against attempts by hackers to access these critical systems using credentials obtained through phishing or other cyberattacks.
Fast, convenient push token notification
Through convenient push token notification, Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access enables the enforcement of multifactor authentication for remote access with a workflow that is fast and efficient for users. When accessing a VPN or other gateway, employees enter their username and password as the first factor of authentication. Imprivata Confirm ID will then send a notification to the user’s mobile phone, asking them to verify their identity. The user simply swipes the notification from the lock screen of their device and pushes “Approve,” and the second factor of authentication is complete. Employees are not required to unlock their phone or type a soft OTP token, and they don’t have to carry at hardware token generator (though these methods are supported if necessary).
Alternatively, if users do not have the push token functionality available, Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access supports additional authentication methods such as conventional software tokens and SMS. This increases flexibility to meet the requirements of various user authentication workflow scenarios.
Convenient and secure skip second-factor
Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access allows organizations to establish grace periods during which users can skip the second factor of authentication. After using two-factor authentication for the initial login, users will only be promoted for a single factor upon subsequent logins from a trusted device. This improves usability and ease of implementation while ensuring security for remote network access and other workflows
Anywhere, anytime self-service management
Imprivata Confirm ID for Remote Access allows users to self-enroll their mobile device from any device, anywhere. Imprivata’s cloud-based self-service device management delivers fast and frictionless enrollment, which improves the end-user experience and reduces the administrative burden of helping users enroll new devices.
