Thales has announced an expansion of its SafeNet Trusted Access solution, offering customers full access management protection across all applications or services in any IT environment. Whether it’s in the cloud, on-premise or through an API, Thales’ customers will now be able to benefit from modern authentication capabilities to ensure applications can only be accessed by those authorised to do so.
On-Premises lingers as API and cloud adoption rises
With the growing use of cloud computing, access management has broadened its scope to address authorisation and authentication beyond human identities. Businesses are increasingly relying on APIs to integrate services and utilise the exchange of data. However, increased reliance on unvalidated APIs can leave businesses vulnerable to an unauthorised or compromised API accessing their applications and services.
With SafeNet Trusted Access, customers can authenticate API access, reducing the threat surface within an organization’s IT environment. While API adoption is on the rise though, many organizations still rely on fundamental systems on-premise to run their business (for example, HR and ERP systems), making consistent access management and authentication increasingly complex while also impacting negatively on the user experience, the organization’s risk profile and administrative overheads.
Many organizations face the challenge of applying uniform modern access management and authentication to these legacy apps. SafeNet Trusted Access reduces the risk of data breach by providing organizations with a broad range of authentication and policy based access. This gives businesses the agility to provide flexible security and authentication across their entire environment.
“Many organizations face growing complexity in their IT environments,” said Francois Lasnier, vice president of access management solutions at Thales. “Their footprint of data and applications is growing, making it more tricky to secure and manage. SafeNet Trusted Access offers organizations the flexibility and agility to secure hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
“Combined with best in class access security and authentication, they can now overcome complexity, reduce access silos and thrive as they undergo their digital and cloud transformation.”
