The Seattle Children’s Hospital and Gemalto announced that the hospital has implemented Gemalto’s Protiva security solutions, including the Strong Authentication Server, two-factor authentication devices and technical support services, to securely access its servers, networks and VPNs.
Seattle Children’s Hospital will equip 4,500 clinicians and IT administrators with Gemalto’s multi-factor authentication capability.
The hospital selected Gemalto’s Protiva .NET solution to leverage the “plug and play” capabilities of their existing Microsoft infrastructure. This included the flexibility to deploy three types of .NET devices provisioned and managed through Protiva Strong Authentication Server – the .NET USB key, the .NET Dual token, and the Easy OTP token.
Gemalto’s Protiva suite contains smart card technology to provide hospital staff with two-factor authentication for authorized user access to the hospital network. They can use either one-time passwords or public key infrastructure (PKI) as the underlying authentication technology, and offers digital signature capabilities.
