Time flies. It’s been two and a half years since I shared Three Insights for a Successful RFID Reseller with rf IDEAS for publication on their blog. Readership has been strong, and the relationship between rf IDEAS and Windmill Computing has continued to grow over the years, for which I’m grateful. But I’m often asked, “What has changed since then?”
In this interview, Wright explains how Imprivata and rf IDEAS collaborate on new authentication technologies to bring unsurpassed efficiency and security to busy healthcare environments.

Healthcare workers’ hands often come into contact with blood, secretions, and many other substances in the course of a workday. These substances can be easily spread to the computer keyboard as clinicians input information, review doctor’s orders and navigate application screens. Moreover, keyboards are notoriously hard to clean because bacteria can become lodged beneath and between keys, and in areas that are hard to reach and disinfect.
When passwords first came into vogue in the early 1960s as a way to secure computers, we couldn’t envision the many ways they’re being used today.
Identity access and management (IAM), the IT security discipline dedicated to ensuring that the “right persons have access to the right resources at the right time for the right reasons,” has been around since the early 2000s. At that time, organizations and their IT teams were responding organically to the need for managing identity.
RFID technology aligns to this path of innovation. The use of RFID technology will never go away. We'll always need badges to authenticate experiences. But what will evolve is the way in which we use those badges. Bluetooth technology plays an integral role in this evolution.
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) in the U.S., and during the second week of the month, the focus is on higher education. Data breaches affect organizations across every vertical, yet many of these breaches could be avoided

Like any industry, healthcare has a unique set of considerations, specifically when it comes to protecting its people – both patients and employees.
In our recent newsletter, we discussed how single sign-on, a type of identity access management (IAM), is a must-have security protocol for all organizations. Not only does the technology save organizations time, (some estimates put the savings at 25 hours per week when implementing an SSO solution) but it also increases security.
Diving deeper into the first element, security assessment, can be a daunting task. What elements of my building should be considered? Did I forget a point of vulnerability? How can I possibly ensure ever element of my building is secure?
The word security takes on many different definitions depending on the lens in which it is perceived. To an infant, security is the caring arms of a mother or father. A homeowner sees it as protection of their property. There's financial security and security in one's self. Perhaps the multitude of definitions can help explain why a simple Google search of the word security results in more than 1.8 billion results.
