With about 100 employees, this healthcare organization provides travel nursing solutions. With the remote workforce connecting with centralized data, and managing sensitive patient health information, security, password compliance and securely accessing shared credentials is a top priority.
This traveling healthcare company had a lot of employee logins and shared credentials that needed to be accessed by multiple staff members. To manage these shared credentials, relied on a spreadsheet to share their passwords. This method was cumbersome and inconvenient, and not always updated, leading to outdated passwords that didn’t work.
The security was also an issue. They needed a solution for password compliance to ensure customer data security as they shared credentials.
They also needed visibility into who had access to what. Since this is a healthcare company, data and access to sensitive and private information, ensuring compliance is critical. They needed visibility into what each employee had access to in order to maintain compliance.
