Thales is making it easier for organisations to manage and secure their data in multi-cloud environments. Its data security solutions integrate with the leading cloud service provider platforms from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google, Microsoft and Salesforce, allowing users to establish strong safeguards around their sensitive data and applications in the cloud, satisfying compliance requirements and giving them greater control and flexibility.
Now both Microsoft Azure and AWS users will benefit from new enhancements to the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM), which offers centralised, FIPS 140-2 certified key and policy management. The latest version of Vormetric DSM in the Azure Marketplace brings support for Vormetric Transparent Encryption Live Data Transformation – which mitigates the need for downtime when transforming or rekeying encrypted data – and container security. Also newly available in Microsoft Azure is the Vormetric Tokenization Server; the platform enables workloads running in Microsoft Azure to tokenise data and offer dynamic data masking using simple REST API calls.
Peter Galvin, vice president of strategy for Thales eSecurity says: “Ultimately, organizations operating in multi-cloud environments benefit most when they have a consistent, integrated solution that offers comprehensive data security and the ability to effectively manage encryption keys across diverse environments. Thales cloud security and key management allow companies to achieve both aims, which is vital as organizations are responsible for keeping their data secure, and can’t default to holding the cloud provider solely responsible if and when something goes awry.”
