VPN Security via Strong Authentication

The Need for VPN Two-Factor Authentication 

Multi-Factor Authentication Purple IconIn 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.

SafeNet Authentication Service delivers fully automated strong authentication as-a-service from the cloud with flexible token options tailored to the unique needs of your organization. Keep your current infrastructure and deploy 2FA within 30 minutes.

SafeNet Authentication Manager is a comprehensive authentication server that delivers full PKI certificate life cycle management, and a broad range of authentication methods, including OTP, PKI, OOB and context-based authentication.

Secure Remote Access for the Enterprise: Gemalto authentication solutions provide a single point of management for defining and enforcing access controls across all cloud, on-premises and virtualized applications.

Secure Cloud (SaaS) Access: When data and applications move to the cloud, user access - by default - takes place remotely. By extending enterprise identities to the cloud, organizations can easily secure access to cloud-based applications, such as Office 365, AWS and Salesforce.

Secure VDI Access: Extending strong authentication to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) facilitates secure productivity from thin clients, mobile endpoints and employee-owned devices (BYOD) when working with VDI solutions from Citrix, VMware, and AWS.
