CoreSight “Sign-On” with Imprivata

  • 05 October, 2007 18:38

<p>Imprivata, a US company focused on identity management, recently signed their first Australian partnership agreement with security specialists, CoreSight. Imprivata’s OneSign product ships as an appliance pair or distributed system, and delivers enterprise single sign-on that is simple, secure and effective.</p>
<p>CoreSight spokesperson Scott Jackson said “since Imprivata’s recent push into this market, there has been significant interest in their OneSign range. Several organisations have reached the proof of concept (POC) stage, and with a typical POC implemented in only a couple of days, we expect to have a number of clients before the end of the year.”</p>
<p>Imprivata OneSign’s refreshing approach to enterprise single sign-on (SSO) is simple and non-intrusive. The process of adding applications is quick and easy, but can handle complex applications and login processes. And OneSign’s ability to securely leverage existing infrastructure and transparent sign-on process makes for content end users, administrators and auditors alike.</p>
<p>“Although the Imprivata OneSign technology is applicable to all industries, we’re finding that the healthcare, financial services and government areas are the most interested today”, Jackson said. “Regulatory and privacy drivers in these areas seem to have created a better understanding of the benefits from making password management transparent for users. At the same time they realise they can increase the security of application logins without having to change code or the directory schema.”</p>
<p>Imprivata OneSign displays less complexity than most SSO solutions, without compromising function or security. Easier implementation means a quicker payback – and that organisations can satisfy many regulatory requirements as well as security best-practices without the long delays that identity and access management projects sometimes bring.</p>
<p>CoreSight already has significant experience in the password management and authentication area, courtesy of an ongoing partnership with VASCO Data Security. Imprivata OneSign can utilise an organisation’s pre-existing authentication methods such as biometrics, smartcards, proximity readers and tokens, demonstrating the ability to leverage what’s already there. And OneSign also has VASCO’s software integrated directly into the appliance, for organisations that don’t favour an existing strong authentication service.</p>
