Authentication Solutions for Enhanced Data Security in Hospitals

Elatec's Single Sign-on/PC Logon Solutions for Hospitals!

Concerns about data security in healthcare are on the rise. Many processes in hospitals are handled by tablet and computer. Hospital staff and physicians are accustomed to logging in to PCs or mobile workstations multiple times each day. But despite high international standards for passwords, they are rarely secure. Input patterns can also be recognized and security barriers circumvented. Furthermore, if everyone does not log out of their PCs during breaks or after work is done, unlocked computers create IT security gaps in the hospital.

The solution can be an authentication system using SSO. Elatec provides SSO solutions for hospitals.

SSO with RFID

An authentication system using RFID cards and single sign-on is faster and easier for users than typing their respective passwords. The card is held in front of the reader for authentication, and the authorized user gains access. When the employee leaves his PC workstation, he takes his RFID badge with him to gain access to other areas. This means that the card is no longer within reading range and the system automatically closes the session at the workstation. This reduces the number of unlocked computers and makes it more difficult for unauthorized users to gain access.

Christophe Aubry, Global Account Manager at Elatec, explains, "Most cyberattacks don't come from outside hospitals. They come from inside. All you have to do is insert a USB stick containing a virus into one of the many computers that are not locked down. It's not that difficult." SSO greatly reduces the likelihood of such security breaches.

SSO and more for Hospital 4.0

The software and hardware requirements for SSO in hospitals are simple to implement. Elatec's readers and SSO software provide the basic equipment. Integration into existing security systems can be easily realized with experts like Elatec and their partners. With this and other applications such as secure printing, access control or EV charging, Hospital 4.0 becomes possible.
