About this talk

Up until now, PKI hardware’s limitations meant companies could not adopt cloud and mobility projects without having to completely ‘rip and replace’ their current security framework. As a result, companies have been using smart cards and tokens to allow their employees to authenticate themselves while accessing corporate resources, but this was limited to activity within the enterprise perimeter. In addition, companies that use PKI credentials for email encryption and digital signing have also been limited to on-premises environments. In this webinar, you will learn about how organizations can deploy SafeNet Trusted Access and benefit from single sign on (SSO) and high assurance PKI-based authentication, making it easier and more secure to access cloud and web-based apps and resources from wherever and on any device. Using the solution, employees will no longer have to re-authenticate each time they access a resource with their smart card, enabling more efficiency across the company – while allowing enterprises to maintain high assurance security when needed. In this webinar you will also learn how to build on current PKI investments, and embrace digital transformation without compromising on security, including: •Enabling cloud transformation: Organizations can extend PKI credentials to access policies, allowing CISOs to maintain security in the cloud by triggering the use of step up PKI-based authentication to cloud and web-based apps when needed •Facilitating mobility: Employees can access enterprise applications within virtual environments with their PKI credentials. This means that employees and consultants will be able to access corporate apps via a VDI, from any device and carry out certificate-based transactions, even if they can’t use their smart cards
