SafeNet releases new security offerings to protect data in cloud deployments

Includes security appliance that manages cryptographic keys, access control and other security policies

By CBR Staff Writer

SafeNet, a provider of information security offerings, has released new security offerings, which it claims to help organisations ensure the security of sensitive data in cloud deployments.

According to SafeNet, the new offerings include, intelligent authentication tokens which ensure that only authorised users access an organisation’s sensitive information; and a centralised hardened security appliance that manages cryptographic keys, access control and other security policies.

In addition, a virtualised instance of the appliance is deployed in the cloud to replicate policies and security enforcement on the data. It allows security administrators to dictate policy based on business content, documents and folders in order to ensure only authorised users and groups access sensitive data.

The company’s hardware security modules offer centralised, FIPS- and common criteria-certified storage of cryptographic keys. The new offerings also allow organisations to securely store data in the cloud, using the cloud for the backup, disaster recovery and archival of data. It provides protection of stored data through a hardened appliance that centralises encryption processing, keys, logging, auditing and policy administration across file, application and database systems.

With proven offerings that offer granular, persistent security controls, SafeNet enables customers to fully leverage the business benefits of cloud computing – without having to make sacrifices in security.”
