The healthcare industry is in the midst of a transformative shift toward using cloud-based solutions. VMware and AuthX are already on the leading edge of this trend, and we are proud to announce our partnership! AuthX, is a prominent leader in identity management and authentication software. They specialize in passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO) security, and electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) solutions, enhancing security by verifying user identities and assessing device health in a passwordless cloud-based ecosystem. The AuthX product lineup includes One-Tap Access (RFID tap and go), push auth, one-time password (OTP), personal identification number (PIN), finger, and face authentication methods. AuthX’s adaptive risk management helps detect and mitigate threats, making it a trusted choice for various organizations worldwide. This partnership between AuthX and VMware utilizes Horizon — the modern platform for more secure delivery of VDI, DaaS, and published apps — to revolutionize healthcare data access and identity management in the cloud, providing seamless and more secure experiences for healthcare providers.  

Together, VMware and AuthX have made substantial investments in shaping the future of healthcare work, ensuring that data and apps are both securely accessible and reducing the burdens placed on IT and clinical staff to drive adoption and clinical experience. This integration empowers healthcare enterprises to enjoy a consistent Horizon virtual desktop and app experience, whether they operate on premises or in the multi-cloud, thanks to the seamless interface with AuthX. 

This exciting integration, which seamlessly connects with the cutting-edge VMware Horizon VDI platform, empowers clinical professionals to access patient data with unprecedented ease. With an SSO process that is enriched by a variety of authentication methods, including RFID, biometrics, push auth, and OTPs, it’s all about convenience and security. Additionally, these authentication methods adhere to global identity management standards, setting a new benchmark for securely accessing healthcare data across the enterprise and cloud.
