Identity Automation Releases Summer 2020 Update for RapidIdentity IAM Platform


Applications 2-1

At Identity Automation, we put a strong focus on our customer’s needs and strive for continuous innovation and improvement of our solutions. We are proud to announce the latest generation of RapidIdentity and provide our customers with the most in-demand capabilities for today’s evolving IAM challenges.

The Summer 2020 RapidIdentity update is the first release of 2020 and includes general usability improvements as well as the following new features and enhancements:

Password Blacklist Screening

This feature supports the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards by using an API-open service to screen new passwords against a database. If enabled, the database of hacked passwords provided by Have I Been Pwned identifies if a password has been revealed in past data breaches. When a user resets their password, RapidIdentity integrates with this API to determine if the password has been in a breach, and if so, the user is notified to select a different password.

Scheduled Entitlements

This new feature aligns with Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) change management best practices to document, vet, and approve planned changes before a change is made. Scheduled entitlements in RapidIdentity ties that change management process to the Privileged Access Management process (PAM) by enabling users who need privileged access to request entitlements for a future date/time. While privileged access is approved and granted in advance, RapidIdentity does not execute the provisioning workflow until the specified date/time. This process seamlessly integrates with change management systems for complete automation.

FIPS Compliance Certification

While previously Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) compliant, a set of computer system security standards set by NIST, RapidIdentity ExactAccess and QwickAccess are now FIPS certified.

Enhanced QwickAccess IGEL Shared Sessions

This new feature supports shared sessions in healthcare by providing the ability for QwickAccess users to login to shared instances of Hyperspace via Citrix on a kiosk workstation. This enables clinicians to use the same IGEL device through a generic account unrelated to the user. Users then authenticate to the shared Hyperspace instance using their individual user accounts. With this enhancement, a single IGEL device can be used by more clinicians, without compromising security and auditability.

QR Code Branding

This feature gives school districts more personalization capabilities for QR codes. Now, school districts can customize and match QR codes and QRC badges to the branding of their school colors, font, and text.

New Integration Support for Epic

Identity Automation now supports the connection from RapidIdentity Automated Lifecycle Management to Epic EMR to push identity lifecycle updates.

Added Thin Client Support

The RapidIdentity Summer 2020 update also includes new QwickAccess support for HP ThinPro 7.1.
