Here are a couple of the news and blog articles about the recent mobile security solution launch that enables corporations to manage and authentication both consumer devices and corporate-owned assets with one platform.
Andrew Young, vice president of authentication at SafeNet, said: “The security perimeter and devices that access it have changed dramatically, forcing organisations to re-think access to networks, especially with regard to mobile devices. SAM enables our customers to evolve into the future, extending their security infrastructure to keep pace with the emergence of new endpoint devices, ensuring that data remains protected.”
If your device doesn’t meet the credentials inside SafeNet’s “unified authentication scheme,” the device doesn’t get to access the network. SafeNet also works through “layers of protection through encryption of token data,” which allows IT admins to manage authentication keys. SAM’s authentication layers also work over VPNs, virtualization environments and even SaaS apps.
SafeNet has a partner program, in addition to a plethora of authentication devices in both hardware and software token versions. If you’re an SMB or enterprise serious about using consumer devices in the workplace, you should consider checking this out. MSPs might want to even add this to their portfolio of security solutions.
By integrating mobile device credential management into a unified authentication scheme, organisations can ensure that only authorised personal mobile devices have access to corporate networks and resources.
Laurence Pingree, a Gartner research director, said that the increased adoption of smartphones, tablets, and other consumer devices accessing corporate networks is a big security challenge.
