Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY), the largest not-for-profit home health care organization in the United States, recently modernized an IT infrastructure that serves more than 15,000 users by deploying several new software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. The Symplified technology enables VNSNY to enforce access security policies, to provide single sign-on from any device, and to allow usage audits of applications for compliance reporting.
VNSNY, which cares for 140,000 patients in the greater New York metro area, wanted a centralized access management platform that could secure six public cloud applications as well as several private cloud applications. Symplified’s ability to audit cloud application usage was a key selling point for VNSNY, which needs to comply with various regulations.
“Symplified’s ability to protect popular and less well-known cloud applications, support our business processes and integrate with an existing Active Directory-based identity infrastructure were extremely important to us,” Larry Whiteside, chief information security officer of VNSNY, said in a statement. “We have six SaaS applications that have gone live thus far and I am highly impressed with the speed and ease with which we have been able to roll these out to our very large, very mobile user base.”
