This week Gemalto was recognized at the 2018 Channelnomics Security Awards for Best Identity & Access Management offering for SafeNet Trusted Access. The Channelnomics Security Awards recognize the trailblazers in the security industry who are embracing the ever-changing face of the market and make it possible for the channel to forge ahead in this challenging landscape.
With 30 categories recognizing the achievements of resellers, MSPs, MSSPs, vendors and distributors, the inaugural awards event took place on September 13 at 3 West Club in Manhattan, highlighting the great work distributors, resellers, vendors and service providers are doing to help organizations improve their security postures.
SafeNet Trusted Access solves a growing pain point for IT organizations that have to manage an ever growing number of cloud-based applications used by employees. According to Gemalto’s 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Study, the average company has 27 cloud-based applications. Obviously that is the mid-range, so you can image that large enterprises have much more than that. The pain points of having so many cloud apps are obvious. How to secure access to growing cloud app universe, constant password resets, and the poor end user experience of having to log into each cloud app.
SafeNet Trusted Access is an intuitive access management service that makes it easy for IT organizations to manage access to cloud apps with single sign-on and scenarios-based access policies. The solution helps IT staff streamline cloud identity management, eliminate password hassles for IT and users, provides a single view of access events across an organization’s universe of apps, and ensures that the right user has access to the right applications at the right level of trust.
We’re very proud to win this channel partner-focused award for SafeNet Trusted Access. For reseller partners and distributors, SafeNet Trusted Access allows them to offer customers a cutting edge IAM solution that is built on the cloud to help them secure the cloud. In addition, as more and more enterprises turn from on-premise hardware to cloud solutions, SafeNet Trusted Access enables partners to add another cloud security solution to their portfolio.
Reseller partners, distributors and service providers are key go-to-market channels for Gemalto and SafeNet Trusted Access. Launched more than a year ago, a majority of our sales of SafeNet Trusted Access are through our indirect channels, which is a testimony to value our partners see in the solution.
