Imprivata, the healthcare IT security company, today introduced Imprivata Identity Governance as the first step in enabling end-to-end Healthcare Identity and Access Management (IAM) with Microsoft Azure Active Directory. Imprivata Identity Governance delivers a new level of security and compliance to healthcare organizations by ensuring the right users have the right access to the right on-premises and cloud applications, and the audit trail to prove it.
Complements Microsoft Azure Experience with Day One Identity Management
Imprivata Identity Governance now allows joint healthcare customers of Microsoft and Imprivata to manage the provisioning, tracking, and de-provisioning of their users in their hybrid on-premises and cloud environments. From a security perspective, the combined solutions ensure clinical access governance for cloud and healthcare applications with compliance reporting capabilities.
Key Features of Imprivata Identify Governance
– Governance, risk management, and compliance dashboard: Imprivata Identity Governance provides compliance teams and security analysts with a complete user behavior and entitlement view by combining rights and usage data in a single report.
– Same-day access rights to clinical systems: Enable care providers to access key clinical systems – from their first day at the organization to their last
– Self-service portal: The Imprivata Identity Governance self-service portal enables users to update their passwords and request additional application access quickly, without IT involvement.
– Access and entitlement enforcement: Imprivata Identity Governance enables customers to manage identity roles and entitlements over the lifecycle of a user, with workflow capabilities that allow for certification and remediation of access and entitlement rights
Automate identity management, increase security
Once users are on-boarded with Imprivata Identity Governance and Azure Active Directory, they have all the right tools in place from the start. Healthcare Seamless SSO, another Imprivata and Microsoft Azure Active Directory integration, can enable passwordless access to all applications with the simple tap of a badge. This combined with other Imprivata workflows including electronic prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS) delivers a complete solution for complying with HIPAA and DEA requirements while ensuring a fast, seamless workflow for providers, which is especially important given the increasing state, federal, and industry requirements for EPCS.
Why It Matters
“As organizations manage healthcare users in their environments and extend their on-premises Active Directory to the cloud with Microsoft Azure Active Directory, this integration now provides a comprehensive solution for completing the first step in the IAM process: certifying the right users have the right access to the right applications that work on both modern and traditional endpoints,” said Wes Wright, Chief Technology Officer at Imprivata. “This not only enables a smooth transition as our joint customers progress in their digital transformations, but also advances security by supporting compliance with government regulations and streamlining the auditing process.”
