RightPatient, HealthCast partner
RightPatient and HealthCast Inc. have entered into a partnership that combines a biometric patient identification and patient safety platform with a single sign-on solution to secure access to personal health information, automate workflows, prevent duplicate medical records, deter fraud, and increase operational efficiency.
The alliance enables health care providers to meet the growing demand for patient and clinician safety and security solutions that can help to achieve the “triple aim” of improving the care experience, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs of healthcare.
With interfaces for all major electronic health record systems and customers that collectively process more than 30 million annual patient visits, RightPatient is a patient identification solution. The platform uses various forms of biometric matching to accurately identify patients at all touch points along the care continuum, including hospitals, clinics, physician offices, patient portals and mHealth apps. This enables providers to save resources by preventing duplicate medical records and identity fraud, while strengthening patient safety and protecting personal health information.
HealthCast provides clinicians with secure access to health care applications to streamline clinical workflow, and protect sensitive, confidential patient information. The solution integrates with health information systems and supports various forms of credentialing, such as biometrics, proximity badges, and secure tokens. Plus, health care providers can use the HealthCast SSO platform to meet two-factor secure identification credentialing requirements for the electronic prescription of controlled substances.
PINgrid for two-factor auth to remote desktop
Winfrasoft announced the launch of its Remote Desktop Agent that takes advantage of its PINgrid solution to deliver two-factor authentication for organizations using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services. Remote Desktop Agent enables IT security teams to comply with two-factor policy requirements, without slowing down the user login experience.
When a user attempts to login to their desktop remotely they are presented with the familiar username and password challenge, alongside which they are asked to enter their one-time PINgrid passcode. The user simply enters the digits included within their individual PINgrid pattern, which is displayed on their smartphone or tablet, via the PINgrid app.
GlobalSign announces reseller program
GlobalSign announced the launch of an Enterprise Reseller Program to broaden its distribution channels and help system integrators capture a share of the identity and access management market. The program gives resellers access to both IAM and PKI services from a single vendor, allowing for a holistic approach to solving security issues for the Internet of Everything.
GlobalSign’s Enterprise Reseller Program enables its partners to address the authentication market — with the need to secure and credential employees, partners and customers; mobile devices; transactions, emails, code and documents. Managing access has become mission-critical, and the reseller program includes GlobalSign IAM solutions based on technology acquired from Helsinki-based Ubisecure. The Single Sign On (SSO), federation and authorization solutions are presently in use on in Europe — by more than three million citizens who access Finnish governmental records, as well as by manufacturers, utility companies and service providers.
System integrators can participate in a variety of business models, including referral, integration-only or full-scale reseller programs.
The GlobalSign Enterprise Reseller Program provides a full complement of resources, including automation technologies and APIs to readily integrate identity solutions into reseller portfolios; customer-facing sales and marketing resources; training and technical support to provide rapid customer implementation; and discounts and flexible licensing to help maximize partner margins.
