Physical smart cards are inefficient, high-risk, and open to unsafe workaround tactics, such as leaving cards in readers, card sharing, and lost cards. The resources, time, money, and most importantly patient contact time wasted trying to manage them is a drain on organizations like the National Health Service (NHS). Secured in the cloud in an ISO270001 datacenter, Isosec provides solutions for improving identity and access management in the NHS, now with added YubiKey support for FIDO2 to support the new 2019 NHS RA Guidelines.
With Isosec’s Virtual Smartcard, there are fewer generic cards in the ‘wild’, and the registration of agency staff is more efficient and auditable. The Virtual Smartcard also works with existing systems in exactly the same way a physical smart card would, without any interoperability barriers.
