The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

Imprivata was ranked 35 in the top large employers category.

“What an honor to round out 2021 with Imprivata ranked as one of the top workplaces in Massachusetts from the esteemed Boston Globe,” said Gus Malezis, CEO of Imprivata. “At Imprivata, we recognize the importance of putting employees’ needs first, especially over the last two years as we adjust to new challenges and obstacles. We owe it all to our employees for our achievements and accomplishments this year. Employee satisfaction will continue to be top of mind in 2022 as we gear up for another boisterous year.”

For nearly two decades, Imprivata has been enabling healthcare with seamless security solutions. The company experienced strong momentum in 2021, including acquiring Xton Technologies to add privileged access management capabilities to Imprivata’s solutions; collaborating with Microsoft to make its digital identity solutions available on Azure and with VMWare to give clinicians password-free access for mobile workflows; and releasing the first Enterprise Password AutoFill solution for iOS. Earlier this year, Imprivata moved its headquarters from Lexington to Waltham, MA. Imprivata has over 600 employees with around 3,500 global customers.

“The workplace is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, and the companies that embraced that change, and put their employees’ needs first, really stood out,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor.
