SafeNet eToken 5110 Token-Based Authentication

Zero Footprint Clientless Authentication Solution

To protect identities and critical business applications in today’s digital business environment, organizations need to ensure access to online and network resources is always secure, while maintaining compliance with security and privacy regulations.

SafeNet eToken 5110 offers two-factor authentication for secure remote and network access, as well as certificate-based support for advanced security applications, including digital signature and pre-boot authentication.

Two-Factor Authentication you can Trust

SafeNet eToken 5110 is a portable two-factor USB authenticator with advanced smart card technology. Certificate-based technology generates and stores credentials-such as private keys, passwords, and digital certificates inside the protected environment of the smart card chip. To authenticate, users must supply both their personal SafeNet eToken authenticator and password, providing a critical second level of security beyond simple passwords to protect valuable digital business resources.

Future-Proofed and Scalable with Centralized Management Control

SafeNet eToken 5110 is based on the advanced Gemalto IDCore platform, and integrates seamlessly with third party applications through SafeNet Authentication development tools, supports SafeNet PKI and password management applications and software development tools, and allows customization of applications and extension of functionality through on-board Java applets. SafeNet eToken 5110 is supported by SafeNet Authentication Manager (excluding SafeNet eToken 5110 CC), which reduces IT overhead by streamlining all authentication operations, including deployment, provisioning, enrollment, and ongoing maintenance, as well as offering support for lost tokens. SafeNet eToken 5110 is also supported by SafeNet Authentication Client for full local admin and support for advanced token management, events and deployment.
