Identity Automation has released an updated version of its RapidIdentity identity and access management (IAM) solution. The update is the company’s first release of 2020, and will introduce a slew of new features and general performance improvements.
One of the most noteworthy features is a password blacklist, which prevents the use of any password that has been exposed in a previous data breach. The solution uses an API to match any new password against an extensive database of exposed passwords, and forces users to create a new one if that password is already vulnerable.
RapidIdentity also makes it easier to implement change management best practices, giving administrators more time to review and approve any proposed changes without impeding the work of other employees, and uses Hyperspace to enable shared sessions in the healthcare industry. The platform is compliant with the NIST’s Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), and offers QR code branding that allows a customer to print more personalized codes (with custom fonts and color schemes) on official products.
Finally, the latest upgrade will introduce support for HP ThinPro 7.1 and Epic EMR.
Identity Automation previously acquired 2FA, Inc. to improve its authentication portfolio. The FIPS certification applies to RapidIdentity ExactAccess and QwickAccess, and should make Identity Automation’s solutions more appealing to healthcare companies that need to update their security infrastructure to meet strict privacy regulations.
