Hospital Deploys ID & Access Management

Award-winning hospital strengthens identity and access security with the Encentuate IAM Suite

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Encentuate, Inc. today announced that Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in Englewood, New Jersey has deployed the Encentuate IAM Suite to strengthen access security across the organization. With Encentuate, Englewood automates access to web, desktop and legacy applications, using a combination of single sign-on and employee RFID badges for strong authentication. Encentuate goes beyond traditional identity and access management to provide Englewood with session management and fast user switching, as well as secure remote access. Opened in 1890, Englewood is in its second century of service, with 520 beds and more than 2,500 employees.

Englewood selected Encentuate for its wide range of capabilities, including the ability to provide secure access for remote users through the hospital's Aventail SSL-VPN appliances and Encentuate Web Workplace. The hospital is also leveraging Encentuate's seamless integration with multiple strong authentication factors by providing the ability for staff to access applications and network resources using dedicated workstations with biometric readers in each section of the hospital, in case they forget their ID badges. With Encentuate's automatic password reset, users can change forgotten passwords on the fly, which alleviates frequent IT helpdesk requests.

"Encentuate makes it easy to manage identities and access rights for all of our medical professionals regardless of where they login to our network," said Gary Wilhelm, Business and Financial Systems Manager at Englewood Hospital. "By automating access within the facility and remotely, we ensure that our caregivers always have convenient and consistent access and that patient information is completely secure."

The cybersecurity profession struggles to retain women (figures range from 10 to 20 percent). It's particularly worrisome for an industry with a rapidly growing number of vacant positions.

So why does the shortage of women continue to be worse in security than in other IT sectors? How can men in infosec be better allies for women; and how can women be better allies for one another? What is the industry doing to fix the problem -- what's working, and what isn't?

Is this really a problem at all? Are the low numbers simply an indication that women do not want to be in cybersecurity, and is it possible that more women will never want to be in cybersecurity? How many women would we need to see in the industry to declare success?

Join Dark Reading senior editor Sara Peters and guests Angela Knox of Cloudmark, Barrett Sellers of Arbor Networks, Regina Wallace-Jones of Facebook, Steve Christey Coley of MITRE, and Chris Roosenraad of M3AAWG on Wednesday, July 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss all this and more.
