SafeNet IDPrime Virtual


As organizations continue to move their business to the cloud, the need may arise for PKI authentication, data encryption, and digital signing that can be carried out without a physical piece of hardware such as a token or USB. Thanks to SafeNet IDPrime Virtual that is now a possibility. Enable your cloud transformation securely by building on your current PKI authentication framework for cloud access. Increase mobility by allowing users to authenticate to apps and carry out PKI operations from any device including BYOD (Bring your Own Device) via VDI within a Windows-based VDI environment. And reduce operational costs associated with hardware- based smart cards by replacing them with a virtual solution without compromising security.
