The Isosec product is a 3rd party application and service that works with the Care Identity Service (CIS) to provide 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) to a range of national and local systems.
It is an option for authentication to Spine systems and it works through a combination of Isosec specific local client software and an Isosec application that can be downloaded and installed on a user’s mobile device. Virtual Smartcards can be issued and managed by Registration Authorities across their user estate.
This virtual smartcard solution and service is built, managed and supported by Isosec. The new version of the service has undergone product assurance reviews by NHS Digital's Cyber Security, Solutions Assurance and Information Governance functions.
