NEW ORLEANS -- Encentuate, a leading provider of end-point identity and access management (IAM) solutions and Aventail, a leading best-of-breed remote access company, today announced the Encentuate and Aventail Solution for Secure Remote Access, a healthcare solution that enables caregivers to deliver quality patient care from anywhere. The joint solution improves the productivity of caregivers by providing secure remote access combined with browser based, single sign-on to all applications using the Encentuate Web Workplace/Aventail SSL VPN portal. With the solution, healthcare providers can enable instant access to authorized patient information across all applications without installing any desktop software or modifying application servers.
The browser-based solution enables secure and convenient access to patient information from wherever the caregiver is located - within the hospital, from a remote clinic or a home office. With a single password and log-on, remote caregivers can access a personalized Encentuate Web Workplace/Aventail SSL VPN portal and sign-on to any available web-based, desktop, TTY or mainframe application to serve their patients. All end-point security policies are enforced prior to granting remote access and access is completely protected through a thin client SSL VPN tunnel.
"For Stamford Hospital, providing patient care is a 24/7 process," said James Hodge, Director Infrastructure and Security Services of Stamford Hospital. "With the secure remote access solution, caregivers can securely access all their clinical information from a browser and work effectively from wherever they are located. Because no client software installation is required, the deployment time for the solution is minimal."
