Large UK hospital chooses Bull Evidian’s enterprise SSO solution.
In order to secure and improve access to patient data, the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (UK) has decided to deploy an authentication and single sign-on solution to protect its healthcare applications.
With over 900 beds spread over two sites and 5000 staff, this large county hospital has significantly invested in IT over the last few years. As more and more health information was accessible on-screen, the need for secure and speedy access became critical.
The Evidian E-SSO solution will enforce a global authentication and access policy. It will provide fast user switching to doctors (with context preservation), smart-card authentication with CfH smart card, and single sign-on to all local applications.
With Evidian E-SSO, a Hospital doctor will be able to log onto any PC and access his or her applications instantly by inserting his or her CfH smart card. When the doctor walks away from the PC, the initial user gets back his or her application environment as it was when the doctor requisitioned the PC.
