Overview
SafeNet Authentication Manager (SAM) is a comprehensive versatile authentication server that allows organizations to implement a future-ready strong authentication strategy for securing local and remote access to numerous corporate resources using a single authentication back end. SAM supports a broad range of authentication methods and form factors – including context-based authentication with step-up capabilities, one-time password (OTP), X.509 certificate-based tokens, and software tokens – enabling organizations to meet different assurance levels and address numerous use cases.

Symantec VIP Access Manager is the next generation control platform that integrates Single Sign-On (SSO) with strong authentication, access control, and user management. It offers users and administrators control, convenience, and compliance for public and private cloud- based applications. Symantec VIP Access Manager solves cloud security problems using identity and/or context-based access control across multiple cloud applications. In the cloud, where a traditional enterprise perimeter doesn't exist, this solution fills the gap. Through Symantec VIP Access Manager, administrators can define policies that utilize the built-in user directory or existing identity management infrastructure to enforce security and compliance for applications without getting in the way of productivity. Symantec VIP Access Manager can also protect and consolidate access management for on-premise web applications. It also simplifies compliance auditing for cloud applications by consolidating logs across all applications it protects.
