Imprivata is an independent vendor focusing on simplifying and securing user access. It was founded by entrepreneurs who developed identity management technology while working at Polaroid Corporation's business incubator. The company is headquartered in Lexington, Mass., and partners with more than 200 resellers. The company also serves the access security needs of more than 900 customers.
In February 2010, Imprivata launched its Global Healthcare Division, which is built on the company's track record of working with more than 600 hospitals in 12 countries, and one million healthcare user and strategic relationships with HIS vendors. This new division aids the company in helping hospitals make patient data more easily accessible through clinical workflows, enforcing patient privacy and deploying transparent security.
