At SecureAuth, we are committed to protection. Protecting your organization. Protecting your network resources. Protecting your identities. And as it happens, we’re also about helping healthcare entities protect their data.
In today’s world, securing electronic protected health information (ePHI) means more than simply blocking criminals. It means providing physicians with safe and secure remote access to data so they can treat their patients whenever they need to, from wherever they are. That’s why we created SecureAuth IdP – an advanced remote access solution that delivers security, strong access control and a seamless user experience. 
Here’s what we know about security challenges in the healthcare IT space. We know that in an increasingly mobile world, doctors and administrators require remote access to important often lifesaving data. Consequently teams have searched for flexible solutions that can deliver next-generation access control, satisfy HIPAA and other regulatory standards, and provide an inviting user experience. That shouldn’t be a tall order, but it has been until now. Traditional Two-Factor authentication functionality just hasn’t been able to strike the right combination of security and seamlessness.
We also know the need for security has grown ever more dire as cybercriminals have targeted healthcare organizations in increasing numbers. The healthcare industry accounted for 42 percent of major data breaches reported in 2014. Patient records are catnip for cybercriminals as they contain names, birthdates, insurance information, Social Security numbers, street addresses, e-mail addresses, employment information, family member names and even income data. In that light, it’s not surprising that some of the biggest breaches in recent history have struck healthcare institutions like Anthem and Community Health Systems.
To combat this growing risk, SecureAuth created a solution that layers Two-Factor and Adaptive authentication on top of technologies like Citrix. The result? Attackers focusing on exploiting VPN connections and remote access vulnerabilities are blocked – even those who have obtained valid passwords. Healthcare IT security teams enjoy advanced security while doctors enjoy a swift and convenient user experience that lets them provide excellent patient care, whenever and wherever they are.
If you’re wondering how SecureAuth IdP is different from other solutions, let’s start with the fact that it offers all-in-one security. It delivers Adaptive and Two-Factor authentication alongside Single Sign-On in one go. Authentication challenges are matched to risk factors; there are even self-management features that help users reset passwords and manage their devices all on their own. There’s also no need to abandon existing legacy infrastructures, as IdP’s unique architecture lets IT departments partner its advantages with current systems. The solution deploys quickly and integrates easily bringing over 20 Two-Factor authentication methods and adaptive techniques such as device fingerprinting and IP reputation analysis – keeping data safe and physicians happy with their ability to enjoy smooth and user-friendly remote access to the data they need.
But don’t take our word for it. Check out our IdP white paper and a real-life case study to find out more about how we can help secure your healthcare environment. You’ll learn about the solution’s 6 A’s of Strong Access Control, sophisticated risk analysis and discover why IdP empowers innovation in healthcare IT departments. Most importantly, you’ll find out how to strengthen your security today, before the next cybercrime attack – and fulfill your mission of providing exceptional patient care.
