Upgrade from Thales SAM

Thales has announced EoS (End of Sale) of its SafeNet Authentication Manager (SAM) identity and access card management system, and SAM users are recomended to upgrade to vSEC:CMS.

Support for SAM ends soon, companies using SAM that want to make a change now can use the built-in Export Wizard to easily and securely make the transition to vSEC:CMS with no business interruptions, while taking advantage of the many features and customization options in our flagship credential lifecycle system.

vSEC:CMS Migration Wizard

This feature allows import to vSEC:CMS of credential transfer files generated by the SAM export tool from Gemalto/Thales.

How The Migration Works

First, Versasec secures the export of the credential data from SAM. When starting the process, users can clean up the export and remove any card they do not wish to import into vSEC:CMS. The exported data is then imported into the vSEC:CMS using our Import Wizard. During this process, the cards remain in the hands of the users; no interaction is needed, and there are no service interruptions. Once the Export/Import process is finalized, the Credentials are managed automatically by vSEC:CMS.

The key benefits of upgrading to vSEC:CMS are:

  • Advanced user PIN policy support
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Built-in disaster recovery functions
  • Higher level of security
  • Quick, easy upgrade with no downtime
  • 4 major product releases annually – available as part of the Support and Maintenance service
  • Wide range of supported credentials
