Siemens aligns with Imprivata for single sign-on access

Siemens Healthcare and Imprivata, a converged identity and access management appliance company, have entered a strategic partnership, allowing Siemens to offer Imprivata's OneSign platform for authentication and enterprise single sign-on.

Users of solutions, such as Soarian Portal, a web-based portal that provides secure access, will be able to integrate OneSign into their Siemens and non-Siemens application environments, according to the companies.

Imprivata of Lexington, Mass., and Siemens said that OneSign is a non-invasive, appliance-based identity and access management platform to help organizations enforce security, allowing compliant employees access to networks and applications.

Imprivata’s OneSign application profile generator allows single sign-on and password change for all applications, without writing logon scripts, building custom connectors or modifying applications.
