Symplified, a provider of cloud security products, announced that the Visiting Nurse Service of New York has implemented the company’s technology for centralized cloud identity and access management.

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.”
