Welcome RSA DPM Customers: Make the Migration Now

Thales offers a proven alternative and a simplified migration process to help keep your data secure

RSA DPM Replacement

RSA has announced end of product support (EOPS) for RSA Data Protection Manager, as outlined in its notification. This impacts the following products:

  • RSA Data Protection Manager Appliance
  • RSA DPM Key Client
  • RSA DPM Token Client

The Vormetric Data Security Platform from Thales offers a proven alternative for RSA DPM customers.

  • Challenges
  • Solutions
  • Benefits

Maintaining a Secure and Compliant Posture

As RSA DPM end of support dates transpire, customer data may be unsecured and out of compliance with regulatory mandates around encryption and tokenisation.

Increased Exposure to Cyber Threats

In the absence of security updates and patches, RSA DPM customers will face increasing exposure to threats, particularly any designed to specifically target the unsupported DPM platform.

Cumbersome Migration Process

Migrating from RSA data security to a new security platform can be a daunting task, especially where knowledge of the legacy product may be lacking due to normal attrition.


RSA – Thales Product Mapping

The Vormetric Data Security Platform offers the same features and functionality that you have enjoyed with RSA DPM – as well as many others. Keep reading for the product to product comparison.

Additional Product Capabilities with Thales

Additional Platform Capabilities Not Available in RSA DPM

You’ve learned about product mapping and also about the feature on feature comparison between RSA DPM and the Vormetric Data Security Platform. Moving to Thales makes good sense not just because there is parity from a feature perspective. Click below to learn about the additional capabilities you’ll get with the Vormetric Data Security Platform that were not available with RSA DPM.

Vormetric Transparent Encryption

Transparent Encryption Delivers

Vormetric Transparent Encryption enables data-at-rest encryption, privileged user access control and the collection of security intelligence logs without re-engineering applications, databases or infrastructure. The deployment of our data-at-rest encryption software is simple, scalable and fast. Vormetric Transparent Encryption Agents are installed above the file system on servers or virtual machines to enforce data security and compliance policies.

Vormetric Transparent Encryption Attributes

  • Strong, High-performance Encryption
  • No Changes to Databases
  • No Changes to Applications
  • Easy SIEM Integration
  • Privileged User Access Control
  • Linux, UNIX, Windows Support
  • Automated and Orchestrated Deployment
  • Centralized Key Management

Typical Migration Path

The move from RSA DPM to Vormetic Data Security Platform from Thales takes planning. We’ll be with you every step of the way from initial scoping and whiteboarding, to actually doing the migration.

We offer a unique, phased approach that is unavailable with any other vendor. Instead of a disruptive rip-and-replace process, our solution elegantly migrates your encryption keys while leaving critical data intact, allowing your coding teams to remain focused on their day-to-day demands.

Continued Compliance

By moving your data to the Thales DSM, you will ensure that it remains in compliance with regulatory requirements around data encryption and tokenisation.

Extensive Expertise

The Thales team offers extensive expertise in encryption, tokenisation and data protection strategies.

Enhanced Data Protection Capabilities

The Vormetric Data Security Manager provides a range of features similar to those offered by RSA DPM. Additional components of the Vormetric Data Security Platform, specifically Vormetric Application Encryption and Vormetric Tokenisation with Dynamic Data Masking, provide an easy migration path from RSA DPM Key Client and Token Client, respectively. And the Vormetric Data Security Platform offers features not available with RSA DPM. For example, Vormetric Transparent Encryption enables data-at-rest encryption, privileged user access control and the collection of security intelligence logs without re-engineering applications, databases or infrastructure.
