Authentication as a Service (AaaS)

Secure Access with Authentication as a Service (AaaS)

gdprCloud-based services adoption is increasing every year as more and more businesses embrace the benefits that derive from managing their data and applications in the cloud. In parallel, users access enterprise data and applications in different locations, using a growing number of devices, opening the door to new threats. Authentication as a Service (AaaS) enables organisations to easily apply Multi-Factor Authentication to secure access to any application, from any device, anywhere.

Organisations that want to benefit from cloud efficiencies can opt for SafeNet Trusted Access delivered from the cloud, while those that prefer on-premises delivery get all the benefits of our cloud service installed in their own data centres.
