SafeNet Borderless Access Server

By | June 6, 2006

SafeNet has announced the Borderless Access Server, the newest addition to the Borderless Security solution set. This new offering provides a comprehensive solution for enterprises to quickly implement a secure remote access solution authorized by risk and role-based access control mechanisms, coupled tightly with integrated two-factor strong authentication.

The solution secures remote access over the Internet, wired or wireless, with three levels of security checks. First, the Borderless Access Server verifies the user´s identity through a two-factor authentication method using USB tokens or smart cards. Next, real-time endpoint compliance checking verifies the security integrity of the device before completing the authentication process and allowing access.

Finally, upon successful verification, the Borderless Access Server encrypts data transmission using industry standards such as IPSec and/ or SSL to authorized resources. The combination of these steps ensures the enterprise network is protected against attacks from external agents, such as viruses, hackers and malware.

“Borderless Security provides flexibility, regardless of location, to employees, customers, suppliers and partners to work effectively, sharing information securely without constraint,” said Phil Saunders, general manager, Borderless Security Business Unit, SafeNet Inc. “The Borderless Access Server´s ability to provide secure and authorized access to corporate resources in an effortless manner fits the requirements of many of our worldwide customers.”
