Click to tweet: Proud to report our Vormetric Data Security Platform is a gold @ the 2017 ISPG Global Excellence Awards!
Info Security Products Guide is the industry's leading information security research and advisory resource. The Global Excellence Awards program recognizes security and IT vendors with advanced, groundbreaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher in all areas of security and technology.
According to Thales's 2017 Data Threat Report, the perceived complexity of data security tools remains the leading reason enterprises do not adopt solutions and techniques more widely. The Vormetric Data Security Platform solves this problem by making it easier and more efficient for organizations to manage data-at-rest security.
Built on an extensible infrastructure, the platform features multiple data security products that may be deployed individually or in combination to deliver advanced encryption, tokenization, centralized key management, and access controls. The platform also allows users to address data security policies, compliance mandates and best practices by protecting and controlling access to databases, files, and containers for assets residing in cloud, virtual, big data, and physical infrastructures.
Derek Tumulak, VP of product management at Thales e-Security says:
"We are honored to be recognized as a leader by Info Security Products Guide and our industry peers. The Vormetric Data Security Platform distinguishes itself by offering a centrally managed suite of data security products that can be delivered as needed to meet security and compliance mandates in database environments through encryption, tokenization, privileged access control, key management and audit logs. This award underscores Thales's dedication to providing the best and most innovative advanced data security solutions on the market."
