FrontOne provides authentication and endpoint security for Electronic Health Records

FrontOne provides zero-knowledge, independent security platform that carries out unified dynamic authentication of identity control for insuring the security that is necessary for protecting the privacy of Healthcare's Electronic Healthcare Records.

 
PRLog - Mar. 26, 2012 - NEW YORK -- New York, NY    FrontOne Limited announced the immediate availability of their A3Key Token based Access Control System for the Healthcare Industry.  The system, referred to as JANUS is a dramatic departure from static identity access control, and an extreme secure solution that is a major departure from login and password authentication.  

Healthcare endpoint security is a critical need in the management of security of Electronic Health Records.   The current breach rate in the Healthcare industry that results from internal and external sources has grown dramatically.  Each day, thousands of access points are left unguarded by users that have not logged out of the process they were engaging in effectively leaving the endpoint open for access to critically sensitive and private information.  

Unlike a static identity which can be easily stolen, Dynamic Identity changes with every use. Dynamic Identity renders identities that are constantly changing.   Continuous Mutual Authentication technology re-authenticates users periodically during sessions, defeating identity based attacks and mitigating insider and network based threats.  User Centric security delivers data confidentiality by encrypting user data with a secured user specific security key. This process ensures secured application-to-user delivery of data that is complementary to TLS/SSL security overcoming the transport layer security vulnerability.

JANUS is an innovative information security framework that provides strong authentication (ID sentry), client side UI protection and transaction integrity verification (Data Sentry).  The core technology is “Message Dissemination”, which allows JANUS to create and use a dynamic and unpredictable messaging system to communicate discretely, and thus reduces the system surface that is potentially exposed to hostile attacks.

The complementary “Human Factor Authentication” (HFA) technology provides the factor needed to enable more individualized measures to strengthen endpoint security and user access control. It empowers the user to authenticate the server and be in control of how he/she is identified to JANUS through dynamic, continuous and a mutual authentication process.

3AKey is a personal, unique and smart hardware security device that facilitates security related activity including server server authentication, task authorization as well as transaction signing, in effect locking out all others except for parties those authorized and directly engaged in the transaction.

Data Sentry, provides support for end-to-end transaction security. Data Sentry consists of a communication agent that is randomly selected in every transaction and is dynamically configured to carry out client side and/or server side functions to verify the data integrity of transaction being performed by the user.
