SaaS Security: Cloud Access Control

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

Cloud User Access Icon

When data and applications move to the cloud, user access - by default - takes place remotely. Organizations therefore have to implement access controls for corporate resources both in the cloud and within the confines of the data center.

As the switch to the cloud blurs the boundaries of the traditional network security perimeter, organizations are having difficulty affording, implementing and managing consistent, unified access policies to distributed corporate resources.

Strong Authentication for Cloud-Based SaaS Applications & Services

SafeNet authentication solutions overcome this challenge by allowing organizations to seamlessly extend secure access to the cloud through identity federation.  SafeNet authentication platforms leverage organizations’ existing authentication infrastructures, allowing them to extend users’ on-premises identities to the cloud and enabling them to implement unified access control policies for both cloud and network applications.

The SaaS service is configured to allow access only to those users given permission by SafeNet’s authentication platform.
