Equifax announced after the market close Monday that it has acquired authentication management vendor Anakam. The San Diego-based Anakam has a significant healthcare presence, with products addressing online identify verification, credentialing, two-factor authentication, inoperability authentication, and secure collaboration. Former HHS privacy and security advisor Bill Braithwaite MD PhD is the company’s chief medical officer.

Equifax had chosen Anakam this past January to provide authentication for its I-Card product. Anakam’s solution was chosen last month by Buffalo-based HEALTHeLINK as part of HHS Beacon Community demonstration project.

The Atlanta-based Equifax says it will market Anakam’s Identity Suite with its IDverifier service as a single, integrated two-factor authentication solution. Rajib Roy, President, Equifax Technology and Analytical Services was quoted in the announcement as saying, “With Anakam, Equifax will become a premier provider of cloud-based authentication solutions.”
