According to the 2019 Thales Access Management Index, the majority (97%) of IT leaders believe that cloud access management is necessary to continue their cloud adoption, and almost all (94%) have changed their security policies around access management due to a rise in security breaches in the last 12 months. With adaptive authentication and flexible access management controls, CISOs and risk officers can secure all access points and gain ongoing insights into cloud and application access events. This enables their organizations to ensure trusted access, safe adoption of initiatives like BYOD adoption, comply with regulations and expand their use of secure cloud services.
SafeNet Trusted Access is a cloud-based access management solution that combines the convenience of single sign-on with granular access security, allowing organizations to simplify and protect access to web and cloud-based applications. Each time a user logs in to a cloud application, SafeNet Trusted Access validates the user’s identity, assesses which access policy should be applied, and then applies the appropriate level of authentication with Smart Single Sign-On. With better control and visibility into their cloud ecosystem, SafeNet Trusted Access helps organizations prevent data breaches, migrate to the cloud securely and simplify regulatory compliance.
“With its powerful adaptive authentication and single sign-on capabilities, SafeNet Trusted Access enable us to provide access to all of our cloud and web apps, complete with integrated cloud single-sign-on and multi-factor authentication capabilities. This removes the need for any extra administration like re-deployment or re-enrolment, and enables the easy implementation of a secure, conditional access and step-up authentication with a single integrated access management,” said Coralie Fontaine, technical leader for IT infrastructure and security at SCOTT Sports.
“Digital transformation is taking hold across organizations in every sector, but as more turn towards the cloud it is important to remember that not all cloud-based applications will have the same access protocols needed to secure these environments. As such, we have enabled SafeNet Trusted Access customers with cloud-based authentication, to build and run their business activities in a multi-cloud world while providing the out-of-the-box security, scalability and reliability to meet the evolving threat landscape,” said Francois Lasnier, Vice President for Access Management solutions at Thales.
