Prime Care Technologies Taps NetIQ for IT and Security Management
Integrated Solution Automates and Enhances Service Delivery, Increases Reliability and Improves Administrative Efficiency
Trusted by Fortune 1000 and Healthcare providers to deliver quality managed IT services, Prime Care Technologies turned to NetIQ Corporation to help control and standardize the administration of Microsoft Windows systems and Microsoft Active Directory. With NetIQ, Prime Care Technologies is able to better secure, manage and automate their IT practice to improve return on investment for customers and further establish trusted relationships.
Prime Care Technologies manages thousands of servers in more than 2,900 locations and delivers a wide range of IT services, including managed application hosting, partnered Time & Attendance/payroll services, asset management, Help Desk services and business intelligence reporting. As a result, the company maintains large amounts of highly sensitive information distributed across multiple environments. While serving customers that require 24/7 support and availability, Prime Care Technologies must always ensure the security of their dynamic IT environment and quickly respond to customer requests.
"Healthcare providers around the country trust Prime Care Technologies to secure their confidential and sensitive information, thus making it imperative that we ensure their data and systems are secure, compliant and available," said Ron Piper, director of Technology Services. "After exploring a number of solutions, we determined that NetIQ could deliver the best integrated and automated solution for implementing IT controls, delegated administration, comprehensive reporting and troubleshooting. With NetIQ, we can standardize on a single solution and increase reliability and accuracy while reducing our own workload—ultimately enabling us to deliver maximum value to our customers."
