Secure Cloud Access

Cloud Based Access Control for SaaS Applications

When data and applications move to the cloud, user access—by default —takes place remotely. Organizations therefore have to implement user access controls for enterprise resources residing both in the cloud and within the confines of the data center. With enterprise security perimeters becoming increasingly blurry, organizations are having difficulty affording, implementing and managing consistent, unified access policies to distributed IT resources.

Secure Cloud Access from Thales

Thales' SafeNet Authentication and Access Management Solutions overcome these challenges by allowing organizations to seamlessly extend secure access to the cloud through identity federation. Thales' platforms leverage organizations’ existing authentication infrastructures, allowing them to extend users’ on-premises identities to the cloud and enabling them to implement consistent access control policies for both cloud and network applications.

  • Secure access to any cloud application, including Office 365, Salesforce, Amazon Workspaces, GoogleApps, etc.
  • 20% lower help desk costs, achieved by eliminating lost or forgotten password tickets
  • Lets users authenticate with their current enterprise identity
  • Lets IT administrators manage a single username and password set, per user, for all cloud applications
  • With native SAML-as-a-Service, there’s no need to buy a separate federation server
