Imprivata and SecMaker announce partnership across Sweden and the Nordics

Imprivata®, the healthcare IT security company and SecMaker, have announced a strategic technology and reselling partnership to enable healthcare providers in Sweden and the Nordics to swiftly, securely and conveniently access clinical applications and patient information via smartcard based technology.

The combined solution, which uses two-factor authentication to increase IT security, addresses the challenges of mobility by providing a safe and secure environment for medical professionals to access and communicate sensitive patient data.

Imprivata OneSign® and SecMaker Net iD Enterprise together enable fast, secure access to desktops and clinical applications. The solution delivers secure and convenient two-factor authentication for all healthcare employees at their workstation and for those who require remote network access.

Healthcare organisations across the globe have experienced large-scale, high-profile cyber attacks, many of which apply phishing and similar highly targeted, social engineering techniques to gain network access. This solution is said to safeguard against attacks by enabling robust authentication for all system users, including clinicians, administrative staff and contractors.

By combining fast, secure login capabilities with an optimised end-user experience, clinicians and other system users achieve an optimum performance from their applications and desktop, irrespective of where they are accessing their applications and patient data.

Niklas Anderson, CEO, SecMaker AB commented; “This strategic technology and reselling partnership with Imprivata delivers a joint solution that simplifies and accelerates access to applications and patient data, while protecting against unauthorised access to sensitive information. This is vital in healthcare settings where delays in accessing accurate data can impede patient outcomes.”

Adam Bangle, VP of International Sales at Imprivata explained; “Increasingly, IT systems are underpinning the delivery of excellent patient care and healthcare organisations are reliant upon a secure IT infrastructure to support their staff. In addition, all organisations will be subject to the stringent requirements of GDPR, which requires careful management of personal data. This strategic partnership which encompasses technology and reselling with SecMaker in Sweden and the Nordics enables us to address the critical compliance and security challenges of healthcare organisations in the region.”
