Indigo Identityware Announces iDNA(TM) -- Say "Yes" to Your Doctor's iPad(R)Revolutionary Password-Free Strong Authentication Solves the Mobile Clinical Computing Identity Problem (November 10, 2011)
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/10/11 -- Indigo Identityware has solved the identity security issue for the iPad®. Physicians that love to use their iPad® have been denied use to the hospital's network and applications due to identity security challenges of the iPad®. Current strong authentication solutions are too cumbersome for wide adoption by the users. However, Indigo Identityware's new software-only solution, iDNA, has solved the problem.
"I have used my iPad® religiously for three years in my practice," says Dr. Tony Shibley of Ob Gyn Specialists in Edina, Minnesota. "However, when I get to the hospital I am told to leave it my car and sign in to numerous desktops. It's more than frustrating. I want to stay mobile and focus on my patients."
The seemingly unsolvable conflict of secure access with the iPad® has been solved with iDNA, a proprietary password-free strong authentication technology from Indigo Identityware. With only the user's iPad® and a 4-digit PIN, immediate access is secured to his virtual desktop or applications within the hospital. Furthermore, Indigo's unique password-free authentication software functions equally as efficient for all virtual access, single sign-on, and workflow management, whether the user is mobile or using a desktop computer.
"Indigo has done a great job as I have enjoyed single sign-on from my iPad® to my clinic's EMR for about 18 months. Now I have been told that I must add 2-factor strong authentication. I'm thrilled that Indigo can seamlessly integrate this with my iPad® with only a 4-digit PIN," stated Dr. Shibley.
"Indigo has developed a unique methodology to accomplish strong authentication with the iPad. It satisfies both the 2-factor authentication requirements of IT security as well as the ease-of-use requirements of clinicians," says Richard Friedeman, an identity management security expert with Clango Group.
"Indigo's password-free mobile and virtual strong authentication platform is unique in the industry. The pent-up demand for iPad® utilization in healthcare can now be addressed in a manner that satisfies both IT security requirements as well as the user experience (UX) needs of clinicians," states Tom Rheineck, CEO of Indigo Identityware.
