VASCO Brings Trusted Digital Identities to the Healthcare Community with Launch of Integrated Identity Proofing, Credentialing and Authentication Solution

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., July 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (NASDAQ:VDSI), a global leader in authentication, electronic signatures, and identity management announced today the introduction of MYDIGIPASS™ for Healthcare, a comprehensive solution for healthcare organizations and vendors of health IT applications, such as electronic health record (EHR/EMR), electronic prescribing (eRx) and patient portal applications.

MYDIGIPASS for Healthcare is a comprehensive solution that delivers identity proofing, credential issuance, fulfillment, and authentication services in a single integrated cloud-based platform. Identity proofing is provided by means of an in-person video call or remotely via Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA).

MYDIGIPASS for Healthcare helps health IT vendors and hospitals to comply with regulations and standards, such as the DEA Interim Final Rule (IFR) on EPCS, and regulations in New York and Maine that make EPCS mandatory. Moreover, VASCO is certified as a full-service Credential Service Provider under the SAFE-BioPharma FICAM Trust Framework at NIST SP 800-63-2 Level of Assurance 3.

MYDIGIPASS for Healthcare supports various authentication tokens, such as DIGIPASS™ GO 7, a FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified one-time password hardware token, DIGIPASS for Mobile, a DEA compliant software authentication mobile application that operates without cellular service, and DIGIPASS for APPS Push Authentication that uses an encrypted secure communication channel.

The comprehensive nature of MYDIGIPASS for Healthcare allows healthcare organizations to use a single provider for faster implementation with a higher level of service and a simple, consistent experience for users.

MYDIGIPASS allows healthcare providers and patients to use a single software or hardware authenticator to conveniently access every application throughout the healthcare organization whether in a single facility or across a nationwide network. This allows each user to have a single trusted digital identity for the highest level of trust and security.

“Healthcare providers have made tremendous advancements in realizing the dream of going digital with critical clinical workflows now highly automated, but these are not always highly secure,” stated Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO Data Security. “Many healthcare organizations are still using simple user names and passwords to protect access creating significant risks as sophisticated hackers are now targeting confidential patient information, and this is where our twenty-year history of defeating hackers makes a big difference.”
