Microsoft Office 365: Identity Verification and SafeNet Authentication Solutions

Microsoft Office 365 delivers standard Office applications and files directly from the cloud for flexible yet reliable access to the applications that enterprises depend on. With Office 365, users’ applications and files are persistently available whether the user is offline at their desk, online, or on a mobile device. Office 365 supports both Windows and Mac operating systems.

SafeNet authentication solutions seamlessly integrate so organizations can leverage Office 365’s flexibility while significantly reducing the risk of unauthorized access to corporate resources stored or run in the cloud. Using the Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), SafeNet Authentication hardens access to Office 365 by adding a second layer of identity verification to ensure that only authorized users gain entry to protected applications. If AD FS is used for multiple cloud applications, SafeNet authentication solutions can unify authentication policies for the entire IT environment making identity verification easy across the entire enterprise.
