SafeNet Trusted Access

Thales’ SafeNet Trusted Access (STA) enforces a broad range of authentication methods at the access point while the Palo Alto Networks NGFW inspects traffic, enforces network security policies, and delivers threat prevention, enabling organizations to achieve Zero Trust network security.

With the strong multi-factor authentication (MFA) offered by STA, weak passwords are replaced by strong, adaptive authentication to add a security layer that validates users and logs their access attempts for audit purposes.

SafeNet Authentication Client

Thales’s SafeNet Authentication Client (SAC) is a public key infrastructure (PKI) middleware that provides a secure method for exchanging information based on public key cryptography, enabling trusted third-party verification of user identities. It utilizes a system of digital certificates, certificate authorities, and other registration authorities that verify and authenticate the validity of each party involved in an Internet transaction.
