How ITHealth works with Cisco
ITHealth has worked in successful partnership with Cisco for over 15 years, since we first established our relationship back in 2006. As a Cisco ‘Select Partner’, ITHealth is well positioned to provide excellent customer service and implementation with Cisco products including networking products, switchers, routers, wireless and architecture components.
Cisco and Secure-IT
Secure-IT is ITHealth’s flagship remote access solution using strong two-factor authentication and multiple token types, including the NHS Smartcard. With over 87,000 users in 100+ NHS organisations, Secure-IT provides two-factor authentication for any RADIUS platform. Cisco has always been a preferred supplier to enable the Secure-IT solution, since a typical Secure-IT solution comprises 2FA software combined with approved EAL4 appliances to provide firewall, VPN concentrator, and prevention detection. Secure-IT enables NHS staff to access their trust and N3 network, applications, the internet and email using a secure mobile VPN connection that safeguards confidentiality.
