BOSTON, Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vaultive, an innovator in cloud data security, today announced that it has teamed up with Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, to offer an integrated encryption and key management solution for data privacy and compliance for cloud environments. With Vaultive and Gemalto, organizations can encrypt sensitive data before it goes to the cloud, and maintain complete ownership of their encryption keys to secure their information across multiple SaaS business applications, including Microsoft Office 365, ServiceNow and various CRM/HRM systems.
"It is critical for many organizations based on a cloud network to keep data security as well as control over regulatory compliance, international data privacy requirements, and government data requests directly in the hands of their IT team," said Jonas Hellgren, CEO, Vaultive. "By working with Gemalto, we can deliver an unprecedented level of control and protection to our customers. Vaultive gives them the keys to control their data in the cloud, while Gemalto gives them the ability to protect those keys."
The Vaultive Cloud Data Security Platform encrypts SaaS application data for the entire duration of its lifecycle in the cloud while preserving SaaS user functionality, and Gemalto's SafeNet KeySecure offers secure and centralized key management with total customer control of their keys. Integrating these two solutions allows for best-practice separation of controls between an administrator managing the cloud environment and the internal security professionals managing the data protection and encryption keys.
"As organizations look to encrypt more data in the cloud, customer control of the encryption keys is becoming critical to demonstrating ownership of their data especially for sensitive information and ensuring compliance," said Todd Moore, senior vice president, Encryption Product Management, Gemalto. "Our robust enterprise key management solution together with Vaultive's data security platform provides the end-to-end protection organizations need to secure data stored across any cloud environment."
For user access control security, organizations can also use Gemalto's industry-leading multi-factor authentication offering, SafeNet Authentication Service, with Vaultive's Cloud Data Security Platform to deliver both strong identity and data protection.
"By 2020, 60% of business users will be provisioned, in whole or in part, with office system capabilities from the cloud," Gartner, Market Guide for Implementation and Migration Service Providers – Office 365 and Google Apps for Work, David Edward Ackerman and William Maurer, February 23, 2016. As the number of organizations that use multiple SaaS providers to deliver enterprise email, productivity tools, and other business-critical applications grows, IT efficiency and cost reductions can improve, but it can also raise new management and security concerns. Together Vaultive and Gemalto provide the joint solution businesses need to maintain security and control so they can take advantage of the many benefits of a cloud environment.
Joint Solution Key Features
Quick adoption of cloud services: The powerful rule-based policy engine built into Vaultive's Cloud Data Security Platform enables rapid integration with Web-based SaaS applications. Best-practice methods ensure data encryption at the boundary of an organization's protected network.
Easy management and consolidation: An integrated solution for both cloud encryption and key management reduces the cost and effort of securing multiple cloud services and managing the keys for disparate security solutions.
Multiple deployment-approaches: Manage and deploy keys in physical, virtual, and public cloud environments.
Flawless user experience: Patented processes preserve characteristics of the data so that it can be indexed, searched, and sorted while remaining encrypted, with no end user training or action required.
Exclusive ownership and custody of the encryption keys: Using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standard, SafeNet KeySecure can centrally manage and secure the data owner's encryption keys. Since SafeNet KeySecure is capable of managing the cryptographic material of any solution that employs the KMIP standard, additional solutions can be quickly integrated while preserving the integrity of the data encryption keys at the root of the offering.
Vaultive, a cloud data security company, enables organizations to move securely to the cloud. The Vaultive Cloud Data Security Platform encrypts data before it goes to the cloud and gives sole custody of the encryption keys to the customer. This approach gives organizations complete control and ownership of their data wherever it resides while delivering a seamless experience to software-as-a-service (SaaS) users. Vaultive is headquartered in Boston with research and development in Tel Aviv. For more information, visit: www.vaultive.com.
