About Ruffian Software

There are many IT companies ignoring (or that are unaware of) the identity regulations in HIPAA, for credit card processing, and every cyber security framework (CMMC, CIS, NIST, SOC, Cyber Essentials, etc…). This has led to a scary amount of patient and financial data that is at risk.

We, at Ruffian Software, have figured out how to manage the identities of technicians across the whole of a client base for an MSP. This helps with better security for patient data. It also limits MSP exposure fines from an audit or breaches. In the process of making identities more secure, technicians are able to be more effective and profitable. 

We, at Ruffian Software, are protecting data and making technician access to remote domains, networks, and computers as safe and easy as possible.

Every technician gets a unique account on every Azure AD (0365) tenant, domain, and local machine with a password that rotates automatically. The technician uses a special tool to see the password only when they need it, and only they can decrypt it.

Each technician has an account that is unique to them with a password that is continually changing. This continually changing password prevents a wide variety of attacks based on password hashing and password spraying. It also prevents bad practices related to sharing accounts, writing passwords down, and reusing credentials between different locations. These are all requirements to comply with any of the cyber security frameworks.
