HIMSS15 Trade Show Vendor Highlight: Tools4ever

In this series, we are featuring some of the thousands of vendors who will be participating in the HIMSS15 conference and trade show. Through it, we hope to offer readers a closer look at some of the solution providers who will either be in attendance – with a booth showcasing and displaying key products and offerings – or that will have a presence of some kind at the show – key executives in attendance or presenting, for example.

Hopefully this series will give you a bit more useful information about the companies that help make this event, and the industry as a whole, so exciting.

Elevator Pitch

Tools4ever is focused on ensuring secure and compliant user and authorization management, which is often complicated within healthcare institutions because of the relatively high employee turnover and absenteeism. Deploying an automated identity administration solution that integrates with EHR systems will automate the user account lifecycle and help to resolve these problems. In addition, healthcare employees often need quick, but secure access to many different systems and applications. Tools4ever’s password management solution can help reduce many of the password issues clinicians’ experience.

About Statement

Tools4ever distinguishes itself through a no nonsense approach and a low total cost of ownership. In contrast to comparable identity management solutions, Tools4ever delivers a complete solution in just weeks rather than months or years. Thanks to this approach, Tools4ever is one the largest vendors in IAM with more than 5 million managed user accounts. Tools4ever delivers a variety of software products and integrated consultancy services covering identity management and access management, such as user provisioning, password management, and single sign-on (SSO).

Founder’s Story

Jacques Vriens established Tools4ever in 1999 and has expanded Tools4ever into a global software company. The initial focus was on tools for system administrators but building upon the knowledge and experience gathered in the early years, he quickly expanded the product portfolio into identity and access management.

Jacques is a strong visionary leader and, together with his team, is capable of developing innovative and robust software that fits the current needs of any organization for the practical implementation of identity and access management. Jacques graduated in 1989 from the Technical University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. 

Services and Products Offered

A complete Identity and Access Governance solution that simplifies user account lifecycle management across all your systems. While it automates the user account and authorization processes within Active Directory, Exchange, Google and many other applications, IAM also offers secure delegation of user account management tasks, compliance with user access and reporting.

A complete Enterprise SSO solution: Enterprise SSO Manager (E-SSOM) is a powerful multi-platform Single Sign-On solution. E-SSOM offers two-factor authentication, Follow Me and Fast User Switching.

A self-service application that allows end users to reset their Active Directory passwords. The number of password-related calls to the help desk is thus significantly reduced or eliminated altogether.

Problems Solved

Tools4ever’s identity and access management solutions allow IT to streamline the user account life cycle so that no manual actions need to be taken. In addition, password management issues, such as multiple passwords and a large number of password reset calls to the help desk can be eliminated.

Value Proposition

The ability to deliver identity and access governance and single sign-on solutions in a matter of days or weeks rather than months or years. The accelerated, phased implementation process allows clients to immediately reap the benefits of the solutions and the result is a quicker return on investment.

Key Messages

Improve security of your network, data and applications by insuring only the right employees have access to the information needed to perform their jobs.

Also, reduce calls to the helpdesk and increase employee productivity by deploying solutions for self-service password reset and access requests.
