VPN Security via Strong Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication Purple Icon

The Need for VPN Two-Factor Authentication 


In a decentralized IT environment, the organizational Virtual Private Network (VPN) is just one of several ways to access confidential network resources and critical business applications. Organizations are deploying core business applications and sensitive resources across a greater number of web-based, cloud-based and on premises servers.

At the same time, as employees are increasingly mobile and expect ‘anywhere’ access, organizations are looking to ensure network security with strong VPN authentication. Administrators are looking to enforce consistent authentication policies and user access controls on all corporate resources, while keeping their authentication solution flexible, cost-effective, and easy to-deploy. 

Effective VPN Authentication Solutions

Gemalto authentication platforms allow organizations to effectively ensure strong VPN authentication for employees accessing the enterprise network remotely. Central management of all authentication administrative activities, including provisioning and deployment, enables organizations to reduce the total cost of operation, lower IT maintenance costs and operational overhead, and yet ensure flexibility and scalability.

Delivered as-a-service from the cloud with SafeNet Authentication Service or on-premises, Gemalto authentication platforms allow remote access from any device, while offering numerous seamless and prevalidated integrations with leading VPN solutions, including native support for SSL VPNs.

Gemalto’s platforms also provide organizations with the flexibility to deploy a broad range of form factors side-by-side. Depending on employee usability requirements and organizational privileges, organizations can select the authentication methods and form factors most suitable to them, including smart cards, USB tokens, mobile and software tokens, and out-of-band via push notification, among other methods.
