Gemalto has announced a next-generation key management solution, SafeNet Virtual KeySecure, for simpler and stronger cloud security that will enable companies to extend their data protection policies to private and public clouds.
SafeNet Virtual KeySecure, which integrates with leading cloud service providers and virtual platforms such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and OpenStack, will provide companies with a single key management solution spanning multiple private or public cloud environments.
Using this, the companies can improve key security and simplify the audit preparation process by retaining ownership and control of encryption keys.
"We are seeing a lot of customers who are interested in taking advantage of the business continuity offered by cloud environments, without compromising the security of their most critical asset, data. Current KeySecure customers would also be able to benefit from this new platform and we will be sharing details of a clear migration path with them in the near future," said senior vice president of Encryption Products at Gemalto, Todd Moore.
Following are the offerings by SafeNet Virtual KeySecure:
-Centralized Key Management: Centralized, efficient auditing of key management offers simplified compliance for cloud environments and consolidates key security policies across multiple, disparate encryption systems, protecting current investments
-Flexibility: Customers can easily deploy flexible, high-availability configurations which are built on the latest industry standards, including containers and microservices, across geographically dispersed data centers or cloud service providers
-Compatibility: Compatibility with the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standard provides support for a large, growing partner ecosystem, including the SafeNet Data Protection portfolio which provides customers with a broad spectrum of use cases that can be supported. SafeNet Virtual KeySecure also supports key storage in on-premise hardware security modules (HSMs)
"We're now able to offer the ability to protect data in a seamless and cost-effective way across endpoints, public clouds and private clouds. Businesses should no longer be held back in making full use of the cloud while retaining control of some of their most important assets," said founder and CEO Kapalya, Californian-based start-up, Sudesh Kumar.
