Secure multi-cloud computing

Leverage the power and flexibility of multi-cloud computing with the confidence that your data is protected

Enterprise cloud workloads

Cloud computing and storage have reached unprecedented levels of adoption among enterprises. According to the 2017 Data Threat Report, Advanced Technology Edition, most enterprises now send sensitive data to multiple cloud providers despite some concerns over multi-cloud security risks. Thales provides secure data encryption and strong key management to support any enterprise cloud security strategy whether it is a multi-cloud security strategy or hybrid-cloud security strategy.

Unauthorised access to cloud data

Unauthorised access to your data can result in stolen customer and corporate records, financial loss and compliance audit failures. Are you confident in the security of your critical data, even across multiple clouds and cloud providers?

Compromised encryption keys

Lost or stolen encryption keys leaves your cloud data exposed to theft and misuse. In the instance of a breach, how can you be sure the many keys used to encrypt data sets across many cloud providers are not compromised? Do all your cloud service providers follow best practices for key management?

Evolving cloud computing strategies

While organisations have realised the benefits of cloud computing, many are still defining their long-term strategies and adapting to changing business requirements. How can you ensure the continued security of your critical data as you build and refine your cloud computing strategy? The Cloud Security Alliance's "Cloud Controls Matrix" can help you define your requirements when developing or refining your enterprise cloud security strategy.

Multi-cloud encryption for public cloud infrastructure as a service

Vormetric Transparent Encryption enables data-at-rest encryption of your enterprise data stored across multiple cloud service providers with centralised key- and access-control management provided by the Vormetric Data Security Manager. Centralised key management gives you the data mobility you need in the multi-cloud era. Learn how to bring your own encryption to the public cloud

Public cloud cloud key management and protection

Your data encryption is only as strong as your key management – and cloud encryption is no exception. Thales key management solutions align with the Cloud Security Alliance's "Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing v4.0".

Thales' CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager establishes strong governance over encryption keys and policies for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and

Security for public and private clouds

Thales partners with numerous cloud service providers. Some offer each customer access to their domain of the multi-tenant Vormetric Data Security Manager; others provide a completely managed encryption service. Further, all Thales solutions can be deployed in your own private cloud environments or a private cloud environment in co-location as readily as your own data centres.

Reduced security and compliance risk

  • Reduce the risk of a data breach and subsequent notification requirements, even if one of your cloud service providers suffers an attack. Most data breach notification regulations provide an except for encrypted data
  • Enhanced security posture with HSM-protected encryption keys separated from encrypted data.
  • Improved defence against attacks by limiting access to protected systems and data to only authorised users and devices – including administrators across multiple cloud vendors

Increased compliance and auditability

  • Across multiple clouds, easily comply with data protection mandates found in regulations and standards such as PCI-DSSHIPAA and others
  • Obtain auditable evidence of the integrity and confidentiality of your data stored across multiple clouds

Support for your cloud strategy

  • Capitalise on the flexibility, scalability and cost savings of multiple clouds and cloud vendors without compromising security.
  • Develop and execute a multi-cloud computing strategy that aligns with your business requirements.
  • Expand your cloud strategy, including the use of containers, securely and confidently.
