SafeNet spreads SSO to SaaS

By

 

SafeNet's SafeWord 2008 now extends single sign-on to cloud applications such as Google Apps.

 

Single sign-on (SSO) makes people's working life a lot simpler. Instead of having to log in to each enterprise system separately, they sign in once and then their credentials are passed securely to each system as required.

 

That's relatively commonplace with internal systems, but what happens when the job requires the use of a cloud-based service such as Salesforce.com? SafeNet has extended its SafeWord 2008 authentication platform to provide identity federation and SSO capabilities to SaaS applications such as Google Apps and Salesforce.com.

In addition to simplifying things for users, SafeNet officials said that the addition of this capability to SafeWord 2008 meant administrators no longer need to manage several sets of entitlements or credentials for disparate systems and applications, which makes it easier to demonstrate compliance with internal policies and external regulations.

"The world's most user-friendly authentication management platform is now cloud enabled," said Vince Lee, ANZ Regional Manager for SafeNet. "As organisations start to widely adopt SaaS applications, they are looking for ways to leverage the operational efficiencies and scalability that the cloud brings, while still ensuring the security of their virtual assets. SafeNet now enables customers to easily and pragmatically extend their security strategies to include the cloud, without any changes to authentication platform or infrastructure."
