Gemalto provides more control to Google Cloud Platform customers

IANS  |  New Delhi 

IT security firm Gemalto on Tuesday announced to provide Google Platform customers with the ability to manage and maintain full control of their encryption keys on Google Platform.

Gemalto's "SafeNet Luna Hardware Security Module" (HSM) and "SafeNet KeySecure" now fully support Google Cloud's Customer-Supplied Encryption Key (CSEK) feature.

Customers can now generate, manage and bring their own encryption keys to protect data and workloads in Google Storage and Compute Engine.

"Many service providers are offering variations of flexible key management such as bring-your-own-key (BYOK) and hold-your-own-key (HYOK). This is a big step in helping organisations leverage the growing number of cloud-based applications and services," Todd Moore, Senior Vice President of encryption products at Gemalto, said in a statement.

By integrating with Google's CSEK functionality, companies can use an on premise "SafeNet Luna HSM" to generate, manage and retain complete control of keys to secure sensitive data on Google Platform.
