Encentuate Automates Workflow, Strengthens Security for Marion General Hospital
Marion Selects Encentuate for Seamless Integration with Multiple Authentication Factors to Secure Facility and Network Access
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Encentuate, a provider of end-point identity and access management (IAM) solutions, today announced that Marion General Hospital, in Marion, Ind., has deployed Encentuate to improve user productivity and enhance security through multi-factor strong authentication, session management, single sign-on and graceful logoff. At Marion General, Encentuate automates workflow in the hospital’s shared workstation environment through fast user switching, which allows staff to easily login and logout of the hospital’s network and applications with a fingerprint or ID badge. In less than three weeks, Encentuate deployed its IAM suite, leveraging the hospital’s new physical security system, and integrating physical and network access with employee HID badges.
Encentuate provides automated single sign-on and sign-off to all of Marion’s legacy, Web, and desktop applications, including the Meditech HCIS platform and Microsoft Outlook, for both shared and personal workstations. Marion employees can access multiple workstations by simply tapping their ID badge on digital readers and entering a single, strong password, or placing their finger on a biometric reader. As they move from workstation to workstation and floor to floor, they can login and logout automatically and gracefully, saving valuable time. Encentuate provides Marion’s IT staff with centralized administration and the ability to instantly revoke access while automatically enforcing security policies at the user, group, or application level.
“I was impressed by the speed and manner in which Encentuate implemented the IAM suite, while integrating with our new badge system for physical access, as well as with additional second factors such as biometric readers,” said Emmanuel Ndow, chief information officer at Marion General Hospital. “I believe this solution will have a tremendous impact on our staff’s ability to do their jobs more efficiently, and at the same time it will ease the IT burden surrounding access security and compliance.”
By protecting confidential information through secure access and user-centric audit logs, Encentuate helps Marion comply with HIPAA regulations, while automating and enforcing the hospital’s security policies. Managing access to all applications through a single, strong password simplifies user experience, and eliminates the need to remember a username and password for each application or network resource.
“With Encentuate, Marion employees can securely access information with the same HID badge they use to enter the facility and pay for their lunch. Depending on user group and preference, they can also access information with biometric readers. Encentuate is driving customer cost-savings through flexibility and easy integration with a variety of form factors and the ability to leverage the existing physical infrastructure,” said E.K. Koh, VP of Products at Encentuate.
