Digital security company Gemalto launched on Monday SafeNet Data Protection On Demand, a centralized cloud-based services platform for companies to protect data, meet compliance mandates and manage the security of all their sensitive information in every location with unparalleled simplicity.
Businesses are increasingly challenged by the cost and complexity of protecting data across disparate IT infrastructures and hybrid cloud environments. SafeNet Data Protection On Demand helps solve these issues by providing a single data security-as-a-service platform that integrates easily with existing IT systems, DevOps tools and cloud services to protect wherever data is created, accessed or stored.
SafeNet Data Protection On Demand is built upon Gemalto’s SafeNet Identity and Data Protection solutions. Its solutions are adopted by large brands around the world to protect their data, identities, and intellectual property, while its technologies and services enable businesses and governments to authenticate identities and protect data so they stay safe and enable services in personal devices, connected objects, the cloud and in between.
SafeNet Data Protection On Demand makes enterprise-grade data protection accessible to companies of all of sizes – from the smallest to the largest of enterprises. With no hardware and software to buy, configure or manage and simple pay-as-you-go pricing, companies can more cost effectively and quickly deploy data protection to secure sensitive information in any environment on demand. This empowers them to easily integrate security across all company IT systems and removes barriers between business and DevOps, expediting go-to-market timelines.
Companies can scale their security operations to protect critical data in established business initiatives and new growth markets and address priorities like big data, blockchain, cloud computing, Internet of Things and digital payments.
The SafeNet Data Protection On Demand Marketplace now includes Hardware Security Module On Demand to provide protection for transactions, identities and applications by securing cryptographic keys and provisioning encryption, decryption, authentication and digital signing services. Its Key Broker On Demand enables users to manage keys to provide simple and secure control between enterprise-controlled security, and SaaS and cloud service vendors such as Salesforce.
It also includes Key Management on Demand that provides a central way to manage encryption keys throughout their full lifecycle, supports Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) services and acts as a key broker for organizations extending their security policies into multi-cloud environments through “Bring Your Own Key” (BYOK). Its Encryption on Demand protects sensitive data wherever it resides including files, folders, databases, storage environments, and virtual machines.
Companies also benefit from Gemalto’s extensive partner ecosystem which helps accelerate the integration of data security across their multi-cloud applications.
“SafeNet Data Protection On Demand simplifies data security operations by lowering the cost of ownership, reducing deployment times and eliminating the need to manage multiple solutions,” said Sebastien Cano, executive vice president for enterprise and cybersecurity at Gemalto. “The platform’s cloud neutrality model also brings speed, agility and flexibility for users to deploy the data security services they need in minutes with flexible pay-as-you-go pricing.”
The platform is designed to work with many of the most widely utilized IT products and technology companies such as Amazon Web Services, Dell EMC, Google, IBM, Microsoft, NetApp, Huawei, Oracle and Salesforce. In addition, customers can develop and build secure higher order use cases through proprietary and/or third-party APIs.
