Many healthcare organizations have
observed first-hand what happens when you have compliance violations during an
audit. Insecure environments in our

With the deadline for the CJIS Mandate nearing, I thought it would be a great time to discuss a highly capable strong authentication solution: Authasas. The software easily integrates with an ever-widening variety of card-readers and biometric devices. This particular solution is ideal for organizations that currently have physical access already in place, as the proximity cards can most likely be re-used for logical access after its implementation.
HealthcareIDM.com just launched a few weeks ago and it got us to thinking.

Healthcare is the one industry where strict compliance rules often interfere with the ability to readily retrieve critical data, such as patient information. However, a healthy balance does exist in today’s world.
