Thales announces expanded access management capabilities

23 Sep 2019

New adaptive authentication, single sign-on and application visibility capabilities have been made available for Thales SafeNet Authentication Service customers with an automatic migration to SafeNet Trusted Access.

With the new access management capabilities of SafeNet Trusted Access, organisations have better control and visibility over their cloud estate with greater security, ease of use, and automated security capabilities to reduce the threats of identity-based attacks.

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 organisations 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 organisations 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 organisations prevent data breaches, migrate to the cloud securely and simplify regulatory compliance.

“Digital transformation is taking hold across organisations 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,” says Thales access management solutions vice president Francois Lasnier.

“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.”

SCOTT Sports IT infrastructure and security technical leader Coralie Fontaine says, “With its adaptive authentication and single sign-on capabilities, SafeNet Trusted Access enables us to provide access to 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 implementation of a secure, conditional access and step-up authentication with single integrated access management.”
