RSA Announces RSA® Authentication Agent 1.0 for Epic Hyperdrive
RSA has launched a new Authentication Agent for Epic Hyperdrive to provide strong multi-factor authentication to Epic Hyperdrive users. This integration leverages RSA Authentication Manager 8.6 P3, to provide strong SecurID OTP as a step-up authentication option.
What is Epic Hyperdrive?
Epic is a cloud-based EHR built for hospitals with the functionality to handle the day-to-day operations of a practice. Epic is moving its current primary end user application, Hyperspace, to a web-based framework, Hyperdrive. With this transition, code-level changes are required for current web- and desktop-based Hyperspace integrations.
RSA Authentication Agent
RSA® Authentication Agent 1.0 for Epic Hyperdrive, built on REST based protocol provides stronger multi-factor authentication options to Epic Hyperdrive users. As Epic is transitioning from Hyperspace to Hyperdrive, customers need to deploy this new Agent for Epic Hyperdrive to secure login and/or workflow that requires step-up authentication.
The Authentication Agent is installed on Windows computer running Hyperdrive client. When user tries to login or approve a workflow in Epic Hyperdrive, the Authentication Agent communicates with the Authentication Manager in the network to manage authentication.
RSA has an existing integration with Epic Hyperspace with RSA Authentication Manager. See the documentation.
Note: There is no upgrade or migration supported from the existing RSA Integration with Hyperspace to the new RSA Agent for Hyperdrive.
