Cloudpath Brings Automated Device Enablement To Healthcare Industry To Improve Patient, Staff And Visitor Secure Wi-Fi Experience

Cloudpath brings usability, manageability and security to healthcare organizations via XpressConnect Enrollment System 3.0

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS14 Conference (Booth #365), February 24, 2014, Cloudpath Networks (www.cloudpath.net), the industry leader for Automated Device Enablement (ADE), today introduced its XpressConnect Enrollment System (ES) 3.0  for healthcare organizations looking to bring scalability, sustainability and security to their Wi-Fi networks. XpressConnect ES provides self-service, automated onboarding, combined with advanced certificate management, to provide seamless, certificate-based Wi-Fi to all users.  Along with improved usability and manageability, XpressConnect ES brings the gold standard in Wi-Fi security to both personal and IT-owned devices, helping to meet growing compliance mandates from HIPPA and providing infrastructure-based control.

With Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including a growing list of medical equipment, playing an increasingly vital role in improving patient care and communication, XpressConnect helps healthcare organizations improve staff productivity, patient care and the visitor/patient experience through reliable, easy-to-use, and secure connectivity.

"The number and types of Wi-Fi devices within a healthcare facility continues to grow, and a consistent approach is needed to ensure these devices benefit staff and patients without creating IT overhead or introducing security risks," said Kevin Koster, founder and CEO of Cloudpath. "XpressConnect ES removes the traditional conflict between ease-of-use and security.  It allows a wide array of healthcare Wi-Fi use cases, including physician roaming, patient/visitor access, along with BYOD and IT access, to be more usable, manageable and secure than previously possible."

XpressConnect ES's unique certificate management capabilities, combined with Cloudpath's unmatched onboarding expertise, provide a plug-and-play system that overcomes the limitations of Wi-Fi onboarding and traditional burdens of PKI. XpressConnect ES makes deployment and management simple, automated and more aligned with organizational objectives. Healthcare organizations can easily and visually monitor device enrollment in real time and map every device type on the network, all from a single dashboard.  Built on X.509, WPA2-Enterprise, and EAP-TLS, XpressConnect ES ensures the traceability required by HIPPA is implemented in a vendor-neutral manner. 

XpressConnect helps healthcare organizations:

Achieve higher productivity and reduce support costs – XpressConnect ES reduces or eliminates the time staff is on the phone to the help desk when moving wireless medical equipment from location to location. It allows end users to avoid having to retype credentials for the network each time password change policies take effect. It provides reliable and appropriate wireless network access for laptops, smartphones, tablets or Wi-Fi-enabled medical devices that are now instrumental to quality patient care.

Enhance visitor and patient connectivity – Because healthcare is as much a business as it is a health practice, patient-doctor communication and connectivity are critical to both business success and successful patient outcomes. With XpressConnect ES, visitors, patients, visiting physicians and vendors are automatically and securely connected to the network, making the wireless experience easy, painless and productive – a great foundation for solid working relationships.

HIPAA compliance – XpressConnect ES helps healthcare organizations meet HIPAA's privacy mandates that are rigorous and relentless. By extending the highest level of security to all Wi-Fi users, along with complete reporting and traceability, Cloudpath customers have a solid foundation upon which to satisfy HIPAA compliance.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
