Tees Esk and Wear

Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust have transformed and simplified NHS access and authentication for their staff, with Isosec’s Virtual Smartcard solution. 

The Trust have been Isosec customers for Identity & Access Management since 2016 and have accelerated the use of Virtual Smartcards through 2020 and 2021. They made the move to Virtual Smartcard to help meet their requirement for fast, simple and secure authentication that is essential to keep staff connected to the systems they need from any platform, any device and any location. 

Kam Sidhu, Chief Information Officer at the Trust, commented “The Isosec Virtual Smartcard is the best in class and they have made life much easier for our staff who need fast, simple and secure authentication to NHS systems. As soon as we made the move to Virtual Smartcard, adoption was really quick because it is self-service, and users quickly started to see the benefits straight away, being met with universal acclaim within our Trust. 

“I certainly feel that Isosec’s Virtual Smartcard is the future for NHS Trust authentication. It’s been an absolute game changer for us.”

Michael Latimer, CEO at Isosec, commented “We’ve had an amazing partnership with Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust over the past five years, and it’s been fantastic to see such wide and rapid adoption over their entire organisation. We’re proud to be able to support them in enabling their staff to easily manage their own authentication to NHS systems with our Virtual Smartcards.”

Isosec leads the way in Virtual Smartcard technology. It is the only Virtual Smartcard service that is based on Cloud technology that does not rely on outdated connectivity such as bluetooth to function. From a management and issuance perspective it’s simple to set up, easy to issue and for users, the enrolment process is totally self-service, fast and efficient.
