Passlogix v-GO Single Sign-On Solutions for Italian Healthcare Industry

Passlogix : 07 June, 2010  (New Product)
Italian integrator targets healthcare and the public sector in the country with the v-GO single sign-on solution from Passlogix for authentication management
Italian systems integrator Tech Gap Italia (TGI) and Passlogix have expanded their solutions portfolio for the healthcare, manufacturing and public sectors with the Passlogix v-GO family of sign-on, authentication and provisioning solutions. TGI offerings now include v-GO Single Sign-On, the market's leading enterprise single sign-on solution for application password management and controlled access to shared kiosks and workstations; v-GO Universal Authentication Manager, the first solution allowing use of any strong authentication device from any vendor for logon to Microsoft Windows; and related products.

The partnership adds identity and access management to TGI's suite of services, which previously focused on RFID-based IT asset management, product traceability and business web portal solutions. With v-GO products, TGI can help clients speed application access and strengthen data security via capabilities such as automating application password entry at both individual and shared workstations, eliminating written password lists, locking open kiosk sessions when users walk away without logging off, and providing device-agnostic strong authentication for network logon.

TGI already has secured contracts for v-GO Single Sign-On with several hospitals in Italia and is in late-stage negotiations with other private and public organizations. The firm has clients in Italia, Greece, France and other European countries. It works in collaboration with Italia's Network Based Technology srl (NetBT), a Passlogix distribution partner that sells to system integrators, VARs and dealers.

"We have seen rising demand for single sign-on, kiosk session management and strong authentication management solutions, particularly among our hospital customers where fast and secure access to patient information is imperative," said Dr Mirco Sozzi, CTO at Tech Gap Italia. "The addition of Passlogix's products to our portfolio enables us to solve these problems, deploy quickly, and assure our clients that we are providing them with solutions that been proven in hundreds of deployments around the globe."

"As one of Italia's leading system integrators, Tech Gap Italia has a deep understanding of its customers' access management requirements, stringent standards for the products it sells, and a built-in customer base that needs solutions like enterprise single sign-on," said John Handelaar, Vice President of Sales -EMEA for Passlogix. "Their adoption of our v-GO technology will give organizations in Italia a reliable implementation partner to help address password overload and other challenges related to providing fast and secure access to enterprise resources."

v-GO Single Sign-On, the cornerstone of the v-GO Access Accelerator Suite, enables users to access any Windows, mainframe or Web application with a single Windows logon rather than remembering, managing and inputting different passwords for each account. It also includes the ability to automate user sign-on and sign-off of kiosk sessions; extend single sign-on to remote, mobile and temporary users; add strong authentication to applications without expensive custom integration; and audit account usage to streamline identity management deployments.

v-GO Universal Authentication Manager allows organizations to deploy strong authentication for Windows logon to improve security and regulatory compliance efforts without the cost, complexity or one-device limitation of other solutions. The software enables Windows to recognize any identification device including building access badges, government-issued citizen identity cards, smart cards, OTP tokens and/or laptop biometric readers from any vendor; lowers costs by eliminating the need for proprietary authentication servers; and simplifies the user logon process.

Other v-GO solutions securely manage shared passwords for administrators and others who must share account IDs, and automate resets of Windows logon passwords. All v-GO products scale to tens of thousands of users, enable wizard-based integration that eliminates the need to write scripts or connectors even to homegrown or legacy applications, and install on existing servers without adding dedicated or proprietary hardware to minimize total cost of ownership and allow rapid payback on investment.
