Identity Automation partners with IGEL to secure healthcare endpoint computing
Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform Identity Automation has partnered with endpoint security company IGEL Technology to provide endpoint security for cloud workspaces in the healthcare industry, the company announced.
Identity Automation’s QwickAccess secure proximity badge access solution is now integrated with IGEL OS-powered endpoint devices for enhanced security and performance in clinical computing, the company says.
According to the press release, QwickAccess will deliver proximity badge access to help healthcare providers cut down costs, without compromising on quality patient care, by using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) enabled endpoints and moving away from desktop computing. Identity Automation assures customers that the measure would boost patient data privacy and endpoint security.
“We are pleased to help deliver on the needs of the healthcare market through this partnership with IGEL,” said Geoff Surkamer, chief revenue officer at Identity Automation. “Clinicians are leveraging devices that increase mobility and improve efficiency without compromising security. This partnership meets this demand by combining our best-in-class proximity badge reader, QwickAccess, with IGEL’s award-winning software-defined virtual desktop endpoint solutions.”
QwickAccess supports a number of local and virtual desktops, including Windows desktops, HOP or Dell Wyse thin clients, Chrome devices and recently integrated IGEL’s software-defined endpoint solutions.
“Identity Automation is making it easier for healthcare organizations to address the evolving cyber threat landscape,” said IGEL Vice President of Business Development and Healthcare Strategic Alliances Simon Clephan. “This partnership ensures the delivery of fast access to cloud-enabled workspaces. Identity Automation is an ideal partner for IGEL, and we are pleased they are now part of our growing ecosystem of technology alliances.”
In August, iKeepSafe acknowledged Identity Automation with data privacy certifications COPPA Safe Harbor, FERPA, and California Student Privacy. The following month, Identity Automation introduced an enhanced user interface (UI) for its flagship RapidIdentity identity and access management solution. This was the latest milestone in its 2.0 growth strategy.
