Microsoft Azure offers convenience and cost savings. However, you still need to follow security, privacy and compliance rules, as well as best practices, for protecting data. Further, you need rapid data mobility across all clouds you currently use and those in your future, a need which can be compromised with cloud-vendor-specific encryption solutions.
Effective, secure use of cloud services involves an increasing number of decisive moments, such as when you consider using sensitive data in any cloud. You can rely on Thales to secure your digital transformation. Thales advanced encryption and centralised key management solutions give you protection and control of data stored on your premises, Microsoft Azure, and other cloud providers. Thales technology enables you to:
If you’re 100% Microsoft Azure-based with stringent data security controls, or if you’re running hybrid clouds with data distributed across your on-premises private cloud, multiple cloud providers, and on Microsoft Azure, you need an advanced data encryption solution. CipherTrust Transparent Encryption protects your files and databases stored anywhere, including Microsoft Azure, without any changes to applications, databases, infrastructure or business practices.
CipherTrust tokenisation secures and anonymise sensitive assets for simplified PCI-DSS compliance. And it’s easy to add policy-based dynamic data masking to applications. The CipherTrust tokenisation is available in the Azure Marketplace.
Organisations that cannot bring their own encryption can still follow industry best practices by managing keys externally using the CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager, which leverages cloud provider Bring Your Own Key API’s to reduce both key management complexity and reduce operational costs. You can deploy CipherTrust cloud key manager on premises or instantiate it in the Azure Marketplace.
