SaaS Security: Cloud Access Control

Protect access to cloud-based applications via centrally-managed authentication

Cloud 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.

SC Magazine 5 Star Rating

"The SafeNet Authentication Service is built around a significant collection of automation workflows that allow admins to manage thousands of users, even with limited administrator overhead. The company prides itself on its over 200 integrations leading it to claim - rightly so, we believe - that if it takes a username and password on a login screen they can add strong authentication to it. "
