Secure Cloud Computing

Leverage the power and flexibility of the cloud with the confidence that your customer and application data is protected.

Enterprise Users

Cloud computing and storage have reached unprecedented levels of adoption among enterprises. According to the 2016 Global Encryption Trends Study, a majority of enterprises now send sensitive data to the cloud despite some concerns over security risks. Thales e-Security provides secure data encryption and strong key management to support any enterprise cloud security strategy - public, private or hybrid.

Enterprise Cloud Security
Unauthorized Access to Cloud Data

Unauthorized access to your data can result in stolen customer and corporate records, financial loss and compliance audit failures. Are you confident in the security of your critical data, regardless of where it resides in the cloud environment?

Compromised Encryption Keys

Lost or stolen encryption keys leaves your cloud data and applications exposed to theft and misuse. In the instance of a breach, how can you be sure the key used to encrypt your data isn’t compromised? Does your cloud services provider follow best practices for key management?

Evolving Cloud Computing Strategy

While organizations have realized the benefits of cloud computing, many are still defining their long-term strategies and adapting to changing business requirements. How can you ensure the continued security of your critical data as you build and refine your cloud computing strategy? The Cloud Security Alliance's "Cloud Controls Matrix" can help you define your requirements when developing or refining your cloud strategy.

Transparent Data Encryption – If your CSP doesn’t provide encryption tools

If you are using a traditional cloud service provider (CSP), you might want to encrypt everything. Vormetric Transparent Encryption enables data-at-rest encryption of your enterprise data stored at your cloud service provider. This provides you the flexibility and scalability offered by the CSP, while safeguarding intellectual property without a noticeable degradation in performance.

Cloud Key Management and Protection – If your CSP offers encryption, but you want to manage your own keys

Your data encryption is only as strong as your key management - and cloud encryption is no exception. Thales e-Security's key management solutions align with the Cloud Security Alliance's "Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing." (notably, Domain 11: Encryption and Key Management).

Thales offers two solutions that help you manage your keys and meet the CSA’s recommendations. Thales nShield HSMs let you bring your own key (BYOK) to your CSP. Using nShield BYOK, your on-premises nShield generates, protects, wraps and exports keys to the cloud on your behalf, helping you strengthen your key management practices.

Vormetric Key Management as a Service gives you control over the lifecycle of your encryption keys in a segregated, cost efficient manner, establishing strong governance over your keys and policies for your CSP-encrypted data.

Security for Public and Private Clouds

Thales e-Security partners with numerous cloud service providers. Some offer customers access to their domain of the multi-tenant Vormetric Data Security Manager; others provide a completely managed encryption service using the Vormetric Data Security Manager. Thales also partners with MSPs that offer hosted PKI and private cloud services underpinned by Thales nShield HSMs.

Further, all Thales e-Security solutions can be deployed in private cloud environments just as readily as they are in our customers’ own data centers.

Reduced Security and Compliance Risk
  • Reduce the risk of a data breach and notification requirements, even if your cloud service provider suffers an attack.
  • Safeguard encryption keys separately from encrypted data, using HSMs where needed, improving your security posture.
  • Defend against attacks by limiting access to protected systems and data to only authorized users and devices.
Increased Compliance and Auditability
  • Comply with the data protection mandates found in regulations and standards such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA and others.
  • Obtain auditable evidence of the integrity and confidentiality of your cloud data.
Support for Your Cloud Strategy
  • Capitalize on the flexibility, scalability and cost savings of the cloud without compromising security.
  • Develop and execute a cloud computing strategy that aligns with your business requirements.
  • Expand your cloud strategy, including the use of Docker containers, securely and confidently.
