Gemalto has launched its SafeNet Virtual KeySecure solution, a scalable virtual key management solution for simpler and stronger cloud security. SafeNet Virtual KeySecure integrates with leading cloud service providers and virtual platforms such as AWS Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and OpenStack.
The SafeNet Virtual KeySecure is intended to provide companies with a single key management solution spanning multiple private or public cloud environments. Data protection operations can be simplified by using SafeNet Virtual KeySecure to uniformly view, control, and administer cryptographic policies and keys for sensitive data. Companies can improve key security and simplify the audit preparation process by retaining ownership and control of encryption keys.
“Businesses need options when it comes to cloud security and shouldn’t be limited to working in just one environment,” said Todd Moore, senior vice president of Encryption Products at Gemalto. “With SafeNet Virtual KeySecure, organizations are able to move more workloads to the cloud and easily monitor the access and movement of their encrypted data. 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.”
Gemalto’s SafeNet Virtual KeySecure solution for simplified and stronger cloud security deployment would offer customers:
- 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. Gemalto SafeNet Virtual KeySecure also supports key storage in on-premise hardware security modules (HSMs).
