CipherTrust: Simplifying the Protection of Sensitive Data

Highly distributed workforces, evolving regulations and technologies, endless data growth and the explosive use of multi-cloud services put sensitive information at risk and make data security even more challenging. This is where the CipherTrust solution makes a difference.

According to the Thales 2020 Data Threat Report – Global Edition, organizations use 29 different cloud services on average.

Lack of visibility and operational complexity has led to organizations not knowing where all their sensitive data is stored.

This concern around complexity, identified as the number one barrier to security by nearly 40% of respondents to the Thales Data Threat Report – 2020 Global Edition, is simplified with the CipherTrust Data Security Platform.

Complexity is one of the main barriers to data security

Partly because overall data security remains quite specialized and isolated, forcing companies to manage multiple vendors and point products.

Indeed, Covid-19 has changed the way we use, store and access data. Hackers are looking for potential vulnerabilities to access this sensitive data in remote databases and big data arrays.

The CipherTrust Data Security Platform solution is a single platform dedicated to simplifying the data security compliance process that combines Thales’ Vormetric and SafeNet KeySecure technologies.

It is designed to unify data discovery, classification and risk analysis functions with encryption, access, data masking and key management to provide seamless and comprehensive breach protection.

The CipherTrust data security platform offers a full range of information-centric security capabilities, including discovery and classification, transparent encryption, application data storage and protection, masking and tokenization, access controls, enterprise key management and unified cloud key management from a single management interface.

Its unified, ubiquitous approach across all available IT environments enables multiple business-focused use cases beyond compliance, including reducing data security complexity, accelerating cloud migrations and reducing data exposure risks significantly across entire enterprises.

CipherTrust Data Security Platform: discover, protect and control sensitive data anywhere

According to IDC, more than 175 zetabytes of data will be created by 2025, and today more than half of all corporate data is stored in the cloud.

To handle the complexity of where data is stored, CipherTrust Data Security Platform provides strong capabilities to protect and control access to sensitive data in databases, files, and containers. Specific technologies include:

CipherTrust Transparent Encryption

Encrypts data in on-premises, cloud, database, file, and Big Data environments with comprehensive access controls and detailed data access audit logging that can prevent the most malicious attacks.
