Axiad IDS, a leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, healthcare, government and financial organizations, today launched its new integrated healthcare solution at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, in Orlando. Axiad IDS’ newest solution takes HIPAA-compliant security to the next level by combining innovative single sign-on authentication with two-factor authentication to protect patient information while giving doctors and healthcare providers fast and convenient access to electronic-protected health information (ePHI). Axiad IDS’ integrated healthcare solutions will be demonstrated at HIMSS in Booth #595. “Healthcare organizations require a flexible, customizable solution to meet specific identity and access needs across various user populations,” said Philippe Duchamp, Vice President, Channel Sales and Enablement, Axiad IDS. “We understand how to secure patient information without giving up convenience and accessibility. More than delivering the technology, Axiad IDS truly understands the way healthcare professionals must function to perform their duties quickly and efficiently.” Axiad IDS’ Healthcare solutions make it easy for physicians and staff to quickly access confidential information without compromising patient care. For example, secure authentication is mandated to log in to Electronic Medical Record Systems (EMR) to protect patient data. The challenge is creating a system that both protects patient data and provides healthcare professionals with immediate access to the information they need to deliver critical patient care. Physicians and staff simply don’t have the time to deal with passwords and other cumbersome security requirements when time is of the essence. The solution: by combining single-sign-on (SSO) authentication with a two-factor authentication solution based on smart cards, tokens, contactless bracelets or biometrics — healthcare personnel can log in with a single tap of a badge and be authenticated just once a day. Axiad IDS’ Healthcare solutions are powered by NetIQ proven Advanced Authentication and Single Sign-On software, and by HID Global smart cards, OMNIKEY® readers, biometrics solutions and card personalization printers. Other features include follow-me login enabled by virtualization technologies that allow authorized personnel to move between workstations quickly and efficiently. Each minute saved means more time for patients and less frustration for staff. “Today’s healthcare organizations require advanced, non-intrusive technologies and methods that simplify and ensure a better user experience,” said Terry Gold, Founder, D6 Research LLC. “Axiad IDS’ healthcare solutions provide this focus on the user including 24/7 support for the complete solution — one software solution; one point of contact.” NetIQ Advanced Authentication The NetIQ Advanced Authentication offers flexibility to tailor the authentication experience to the desired level of protection. There is broad support for authentication devices of all types – all under the same management and control. Ultimately, this flexibility helps control costs, while increasing security. NetIQ SecureLogin As a market-leading single sign-on product, NetIQ Secure-Login allows users to access local and network resources using a single set of credentials. When users log-in to a desktop, NetIQ SecureLogin automatically authenticates them to all of their applications and resources. NetIQ SecureLogin virtually eliminates password-related calls to the help desk, enabling IT administrators to focus on new, value-added projects and end users to focus on their core duties. HID Global Trusted Identity Solutions HID Global is the trusted source for innovative products, services, solutions, and know-how related to the creation, management, and use of secure identities for millions of end-users around the world.

Driving Innovation is a resounding theme of companies large and small in various verticals around the globe. Fall 2016, New Orleans based software company — IDScan.net — decided to inspire millennial college students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to innovate by partnering with Black Enterprise as the exclusive Persona Verification Dev Box Partner of the BE Smart Hackathon sponsored by Toyota. October 9th through 11th, 40 students from 10 HBCUs arrived at the Black Enterprise TechConneXt Summit in Burlingame, CA (Silicon Valley) eager to receive their IDScan.net Web Service API keys to engulf their days and nights with developing and deploying a Minimum Value Product (MVP) based on this year’s theme, In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI). Andrey Stanovnov, CTO of IDScan.net, stated, “IDScan.net is thrilled to provide their technology in the Driving Innovation Hackathon as it fosters growth and innovation in participants that will soon be our future leaders.” Participating schools included Alabama A&M University, Florida A&M University, Hampton University, Howard University, Johnson C. Smith University, Morehouse College, Morgan State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Southern University and A&M College, and Tuskegee University. Each school was tasked to innovate an iOS app within the Ionic Cloud framework and utilized required APIs provided, which included IDScan.net’s Web Service API. To build the verification component of the app, hackers used IDScan.net’s ID scanning Web Services API. One of the goals of the development was to provide a verification in the app that went beyond just entering a username and password. Participants utilized the ID scanning API to verify the identity of the driver by scanning their ID. Nathaniel J., Associate Tech Editor-Silicon Valley of Black Enterprise and Founder & Chief Digital Architect of VUEmega Technologies, states, “ID verification should not be an afterthought when creating various app innovations for end-users today. One of IDScan.net's goals is to build a trusted community of users that are verified. Because of this, IDScan.net is the best solution not only for this year's hackathon but also for companies that want to ensure a trusted community of users.” This year’s winner was Aggie++ from North Carolina A&T State University (NC A&T). NC A&T’s winning iOS IVI is Let’s Go Black. Let’s Go Black is an iOS application that helps discover a customized road trip adventure exploring Black history and culture, while supporting Black owned small businesses along the way. The app allows users to input parameters of the trip (i.e. theme, distance and starting location), then randomly generates a road trip with specially curated stops that are African American inspired attractions and landmarks. Additionally, the app alerts users when they are within the vicinity of Black owned small businesses, who are members of the Let’s Go Black platform. The 2016 BE Smart Hackathon, sponsored by Toyota was judged by industry leading experts from companies such as Intel and AT&T.

Axiad IDS, a leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, healthcare, government and financial organizations, today announced the general availability of Axiad ID Cloud, a modular enterprise identity cloud service. Axiad ID Cloud enables organization to issue, manage, and use identities they can trust. It helps organizations protect against costly data breaches and comply with rigorous new mandates. Originally launched to a few select customers across a mix of industries in 2015, Axiad ID Cloud, along with the company’s Identity and Access Management portfolio, will be on display in Booth #16 at the National Health-ISAC Cyber-Top Gun Summit 2016. “Organizations understand that they need to trust the identity of individuals and devices accessing their networks to run their business. Whether an organization is working to eliminate the use of passwords to prevent harmful security breaches or meet critical IT security mandates, deploying and operating a cohesive and integrated secure identity solution is complex,” said Yves Audebert, co-founder and co-CEO of Axiad IDS. “As a result, we are seeing a significant shift to a hosted service model like Axiad ID Cloud: A highly-secure identity cloud service hosted in a Virtual Private Cloud that is easy to deploy and manage while lowering risk and the total cost of ownership for organizations.” Axiad ID Cloud Axiad ID Cloud is designed to make it faster and easier to cost-effectively deploy and manage a modular and evolutive Identity and Access Management solution — including multi-factor authentication (MFA). Taking security protection one step further, a virtual private cloud (VPC) is dedicated to each organization’s data to ensure no co-mingling of sensitive data. “Companies are re-visiting their entire IT strategy because passwords and logins are no longer a secure option to authenticate individuals,” said Sam Lellouche, Axiad IDS Vice President, IAM Cloud Solutions. “By eliminating the potential for human error in the set-up and management of the identification and authentication process, Axiad ID Cloud delivers secure MFA solutions while ensuring predictable cost containment.” And like all of the company’s solutions, Axiad ID Cloud is designed to address the specific and varied identity assurance needs of each organization’s user population. Healthcare The U.S. healthcare industry, specifically, is a top target for data breaches, to the tune of $6.2 billion a year. The need for strong security measures to protect sensitive data from hackers has never been more intense. According to Audebert, “Healthcare organizations face significant threats to patient privacy and trust that can lead to financial loss and risk to their brand. We believe Axiad ID Cloud is on the leading-edge when it comes to helping healthcare organizations address these challenges — head-on.” For instance, one large national healthcare organization recently turned to Axiad IDS to implement a strong MFA solution across its more than 6000 laptops and workstations. Axiad ID Cloud allowed the organization to quickly and cost-effectively implement the highest level of identity assurance possible to protect its company and member data using trusted credentials for secure authentication. In addition to the healthcare industry, Axiad ID Cloud is helping organizations implement MFA solutions to address a wide range of industry-specific mandates including: NIST SP800-171 (government)  HIPAA, EPCS (healthcare) PCI-DSS, FFIEC (finance) CJIS (law enforcement) Availability Axiad ID Cloud is available now.

Axiad IDS, the leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, government and financial organizations, is showcasing its innovative new solutions to help government contractors, quickly and cost-effectively comply with NIST Special Publication 800-171 at SecureWorld 2016 next week in San Jose. Axiad IDS co-founder and co-CEO, Bassam Al-Khalidi will be a featured speaker on this topic, furthering the company’s mission to educate government contractors on how to manage the complexity of this mandate so that they can continue doing business with the Government. Axiad IDS’ complete identity and access management solution can be found in Booth 201. “Many government contractors do not realize the clock is ticking and unless they are in compliance with NIST SP800-171 on December 31, 2017, they risk their government contracts,” said Mr. Al-Khalidi. “Axiad IDS is helping organizations manage the complexity of this mandate, specifically section 3.5 that demands multi-factor authentication.” Whether an organization is working to prevent harmful security breaches or meet critical IT security mandates, deploying and operating a cohesive and integrated secure identities solution is complex. As a result, we are seeing a growing trend toward fully hosted service models. Axiad IDS’ fully hosted cloud offering enables quick compliance with even the most rigorous mandates while ensuring reliable and predictable cost containment. Axiad ID Cloud Government mandates create additional complexity in the implementation and management of security solutions. In the case of NIST SP800-171, Axiad IDS’ expertise in implementing multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions comes in — helping government contractors quickly and easily respond to the mandate. Powered by proven products from Axiad IDS’ market leading partners, the Axiad ID Cloud is designed to make it easier to cost-effectively deploy and manage comprehensive solutions while lowering risk and overall investment costs. “We eliminate the potential for human error by automating the set-up, and as a result, we are able to get organizations compliant and operational in days versus months,” continued Mr. Al-Khalidi. “Taking security protection one step further, a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is dedicated to your organization’s data so there is no co-mingling of data.” What is NIST Special Publication 800-171? The need for strong security measures to protect sensitive government data from hackers has never been more intense. Just in the last two years, the federal government suffered at least four breaches of government information systems, including cyber-attacks on the U.S. Postal Service, NOAA, and the USIS. Some breaches have occurred because of vulnerabilities in contractors’ authentication systems. To address this problem, the Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology has released a draft version of NIST Special Publication 800-171, Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations. For contractors to governmental agencies, this means they must now implement security measures beyond passwords to support these government entities. “The new realities of today’s global economy — digital, online, Cloud-based — have dramatically increased cybersecurity risks. Relying on passwords to authenticate users is no longer a viable approach to run a business. This challenge has to be addressed even if not driven by a mandate,” said Yves Audebert, co-founder and co-CEO, Axiad IDS. “Our goal is to help organizations address the various and specific Identity Assurance needs of their user population. We offer cost-efficient and flexible solutions that can be deployed both on premises or in a Virtual Private Cloud.” Mr. Al-Khalidi will present on Thursday, October 27 at 11:15 a.m. during the “Using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to Build a Mature Information Security Program” session. He will discuss how organizations - in particular contractors to the government - can quickly, easily and cost-effectively implement MFA solutions in compliance with NIST Special Publication 880-171. He will also be participating on the “Current Threatscape” panel at 1:15 p.m. on the same day.
