System administrators in this insurance company use the strength of WWPass Pro to securely access corporate resources using VMware® and Windows Remote Desktop.

WMware_Diagram_TAfter a series of very sophisticated cyber-attacks across the industry that provided hackers with access to personal information of both consumers and employees, this health industry provider clearly needed to identify and resolve their security vulnerabilities.  One such vulnerability was the use of the existing username and password based authentication. WWPass hardware KeySets and WWPass Security Pack software were used as part of a certificate-based authentication solution to eliminate the use of usernames and passwords.  Using their own Active Directory server and Certificate Authority, users of their system use a WWPass PassKey to securely logon to a virtual desktop infrastructure.

IT Systems Integrator Support Team Uses the Convenience and Security of WWPass PassKey Lite to Streamline their Service Support Processes

WWPass PassKey Lite Solution

An IT Systems Integrator Company needed a more secure and convenient authentication process for their BMC Remedy Service Support Management Tool for their 400 service desk operators.  Complex password policies and constant resetting of passwords made the current  username and password based authentication costly and cumbersome.

WWPass provided a custom solution that extends the infrastructure of the BMC Remedy management system integrated with IBM’s  Security Access Manager (ISAM) to support WWPass authentication.  A new authentication screen allows users of WWPass PassKey Lite (a mobile app) to log into their service support system on-site and remotely.  An infrastructure was also put into place to allow new users to bind PassKey Lite to their account to make management of users and WWPass tokens easy.  PassKey Lite is a mobile app that runs on iPhone iOS or Android operating systems.

Mental Health Professionals use WWPass HIPAA compliant encrypted storage solutions to securely manage (store and access) sensitive medical documents.

How WWPass Authentication Works

Patient confidentiality is an absolute imperative across the medical community. The need to safeguard sensitive client information and comply with HIPAA requirements challenges all providers, but it is especially burdensome for small practices and individual practitioners. With no dedicated IT resources, individual practitioners can be distracted from patient care by the ongoing task of securing sensitive documents and data in a cost-effective and user-friendly manner.

To meet this need, a group of individual mental health practitioners turned to WWPass for guidance. The group implemented WWPass Security Pack  which consists of several applications that allow doctors to meet data security needs. WWPass Personal Secure Storage provides private, encrypted, cloud-based storage solution for sensitive medical documents that is protected by profoundly secure authentication. WWPass Secure Journal provides a safe place to record session notes and patient histories. Email can also be encrypted to protect confidential correspondence. To access these applications, practitioners use the WWPass PassKey replacing the traditional user login that is subject to hacking, phishing and other breaches.

The end result is an affordable, HIPAA-compliant secure storage environment that is easy to implement.

External access utilizes Windows Remote Desktop Gateway service which requires only standard 443 port for SSL-encrypted connection. To start an application, user clicks on RDP icon on the desktop, connects its WWPass key and provides an access code (PIN). Windows Single-Sign-On transparently connects the user through Remote Desktop Gateway directly to the Application. Once a user has completed their tasks with the application, the system can be configured to close the application by simply removing the PassKey.

In order implement the functionality, private two-tier PKI framework was deployed with Windows Enterprise Issuing CA and extremely lightweight offline Linux Root CA.
