Identity Automation has released a new update for RapidIdentity, its Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform, which includes password blacklist screening, scheduled entitlements, and Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) compliance certification, the company announced.

“At Identity Automation, we put a strong focus on our customer’s needs and strive for continuous innovation and improvement of our solutions,” said Michael Webb, Chief Technology Officer at Identity Automation, in a prepared statement. “We are pleased to announce the latest generation of RapidIdentity and provide our customers with the most in-demand capabilities for today’s evolving IAM challenges.”

When enabled, password blacklist screening uses an API-open service to cross match passwords with those in a database on Have I Been Pwned, created by security researcher Troy Hunt, which lets users check if their personal data and passwords have been compromised by data breaches.

The scheduled entitlements feature lets users request entitlements for a future date and time. Users can gain privileged access beforehand, however the provisioning workflow will only be started on the requested date. To become fully automated, scheduled entitlements can be integrated with change management systems.

RapidIdentity is now FIPS certified, compliant with computer system security standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

With QwickAccess IGEL shared sessions, users in healthcare can access shared instances of Hyperspace via Citrix on a kiosk workstation to use the same device. They are then authenticated using their individual accounts.

Identity Automation partnered last year with endpoint security company IGEL Technology to provide endpoint security for cloud workspaces in the healthcare industry.

The QR code branding feature lets school districts customize QR codes. Identity Automation now also supports the connection from RapidIdentity Automated Lifecycle Management to Epic EMR to push identity lifecycle updates, and includes new QwickAccess support for HP ThinPro 7.1.

Earlier this month, Identity Automation launched a new module, Studio, with enhanced capabilities to Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) rostering data for K-12 education to give students access to virtual classroom resources right away.
