“ClinOne’s biometric and multi-factor authentication capabilities significantly increase security and privacy controls around clinical data in the virtual environment.”
ClinOne is adding biometric authentication to its clinical research platform. The company has announced that its iOS and Android app now offers support for fingerprint and facial recognition, which will reduce the risk of data breaches in conjunction with the app’s existing two-factor authentication features.
“Passwords are no longer considered enough in protecting sensitive data within clinical research,” said ClinOne Co-Founder and CTO Eric Schraufnagel. “ClinOne’s biometric and multi-factor authentication capabilities significantly increase security and privacy controls around clinical data in the virtual environment.”
Biometric authentication will make it easier for clinics to comply with the medical privacy guidelines laid out by regulatory organizations like HIPAA and Europe’s GDPR. ClinOne cited the growing security demands for clinical research while making its announcement, especially given the increasing popularity of mobile solutions and the sensitive nature of clinical data.
That’s also why more and more healthcare companies are incorporating some form of biometric authentication into their infrastructure. Such technologies can be used to both streamline operations and protect sensitive patient data.
