Gemalto announced its SafeNet data encryption and key management solutions are now available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Gemalto’s SafeNet solutions enable VMware Cloud on AWS customers to deploy client-side encryption, centralized key management and tokenization to simplify security operations such as data visibility, compliance auditing and policy execution and enforcement.
Gemalto’s SafeNet data encryption and key management solutions help organizations protect their data in the cloud, applications, data centers, networks and virtual environments. VMware customers running workloads in AWS can easily integrate Gemalto’s cloud-ready security technology to:
· Boost cloud security – customers can store and manage keys in central, hardened appliances, and gain the visibility and control they need to consistently and effectively enforce security controls.
· Ensure key ownership – through secure key storage, high availability, and scalability, organizations ensure they retain total control of their encryption keys and data.
· Streamline key management – administrators can centrally manage keys, permissions and policies with more speed, ease, and efficiency.
· Simplify compliance – the centralized platform enables customers to ensure and demonstrate compliance with stringent security policies and compliance mandates.
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realize new capabilities.
