NH-ISAC Ditches Passwords, Links with Trusona

By Ryan Black, Healthcare Analytics News


Out with the old, in with “dynamic user authentication with assurance static user credentials can’t be stolen or replayed to imitate an actual member’s login”: The National Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (NH-ISAC) announced this week that it is ditching passwords.

The leading nonprofit healthcare cybersecurity collective will pair with tech company Trusona to adopt its #NoPasswords solution. The technology works by generating a one-time use QR code for desktop portal logins. When the code on that screen is scanned using the corresponding mobile app, it instantly validates the login.

“Today NH-ISAC has sent a loud message that there is a better way to secure identity,” Trusona CEO Ori Eisen said in a statement. In November, his company led a webinar event with representatives from Aetna that was hosted by NH-ISAC.
