New generation of Imprivata appliances

With every major release of Imprivata’s OneSign product, they also release an updated version of the appliance the product is running on. With the release of Imprivata OneSign & Confirm ID version 6.1 this December, they also released a new generation of the appliance. This version, called generation 3 (G3), is only available as a virtual appliance.

The G3 appliance provides an updated operating system and database, together with the latest security patches.

What does this mean?

Version 6.1 and all subsequent versions of the OneSign product, will only be supported on this new appliance. This means, that if you want to update Imprivata OneSign to version 6.1 or later, you must first migrate to the new G3 appliance. You must purchase the new virtual appliances, along with new licenses, to replace the existing generation 2 appliances.

Generation 2 (G2) appliances will continue to receive patches and hotfixes until their respectively EOL (End of life). This date is set to December 31, 2020 for the virtual and April 30 2019 for the physical appliances. After these dates, Imprivata will no longer provide product updates or patches.

What are the requirements?

The G2 appliances and all Imprivata agents must run at least version 5.2 or later before beginning the migration to G3. The G3 appliance is not backwards compatible with agents operating at 5.1 SP1 or earlier. So, if you haven’t already, it may soon be time to start thinking about upgrading.

Feel free to contact us if you need any assistance with the migration.



Imprivata demo – smarta inloggningar

Det finns många tillfällen då man vill effektivisera inloggningen. I många fall kan man spara mycket tid om användarna behöver mata in sitt lösenord många gånger per dag. I vissa fall är det inte praktiskt att användarna behöver mata in sitt lösenord, till exempel om de arbetar i miljöer utan tangentbord eller om de bär utrustning (handskar etc) som försvårar inmatning.

Då kan lösningar från Imprivata vara en lösning där inloggning kan ske på många olika sätt, till exempel med RFID-tag, samma som man har till passagesystemet, fingeravtryck, smart kort eller 3D-kamera som loggar in dig bara du ställer dig framför datorn.

Se vårat demo från IT EXPO som vi genomförde tillsammans med Imprivata.

Xenit har, som ett av få företag i Sverige, utvalts som partner till Imprivata. Partnerskapet innebär att vi nu kan erbjuda Imprivata OneSign, en otroligt kraftfull programvara för Single Sign-On och lösenordshantering.
