Multi-factor authentication serves a vital function within any organization -securing access to corporate networks, protecting the identities of users, and ensuring that a user is who he claims to be.
Evolving business needs around cloud applications and mobile devices, combined with rising threats, and the need to reduce costs, require entirely new considerations for access control.
SafeNet Trusted Access is an access management service that combines the convenience of single sign-on with granular access security. By validating identities, enforcing access policies, and applying smart single sign-on, organizations can ensure secure, convenient access to numerous cloud and web-based applications from one easy-to-navigate console.
· One-Time Passwords (OTP)
OTP technology is based on a shared secret or seed that is stored on the authentication device and the authentication backend. This method ensures authentication by generating a one-time passcode based on the token’s secret.
· Certificate Based Authentication
This method ensures authentication using a public and private encryption key that is unique to the authentication device and the person who possesses it. CBA tokens can also be used to digitally sign transactions and to ensure non-repudiation. Thales delivers certificate-based authentication via USB tokens and smart cards.
· Context-based Authentication
Context-based authentication uses contextual information to ascertain whether a user’s identity is authentic or not and is recommended as a complement to other strong authentication technologies. In order to develop a robust authentication solution, organizations should consider their business, users, and risk, and select a solution that provides them with the flexibility to adapt as needed.
