Single Sign On authentication product introduced by Thales

Share this article:

Thales has announced the launch of SafeSign Single Sign On for simplified authentication.

It claimed that for organisations concerned with ever increasing security threats, rising help-desk costs and frustration with managing multiple and complex passwords, SafeSign Single Sign On provides simplified secure access to sensitive applications by requiring the user to identify himself only once at the start of a session.

With SafeSign Single Sign On users need just one identity credential and no longer need to remember lots of different passwords. Different strengths and types of authentication can be presented to different user groups, including static passwords, one-time password tokens, USB tokens, EMV/CAP cards and PKI smartcards.

Franck Greverie, vice president, managing director for the information systems security activities of Thales, said: “As IT systems proliferate to support business processes, users typically have to sign-on to multiple systems, necessitating an equivalent number of sign-on exchanges – each of which may involve different usernames and authentication information.

“System administrators are also faced with managing user accounts within each of the multiple systems to be accessed in order to maintain the integrity of security policy enforcement.

"SafeSign Single Sign On streamlines the authentication processes associated with accessing Windows desktop and web-based applications through the comprehensive deployment of a managed single sign-on framework with strong authentication.”
