Advanced Data-at-Rest Encryption, Access Control and Data Access Audit Logging
Meet compliance and best practice requirements for encryption, access control and data access logging using a proven hardware-accelerated encryption solution that secures files, volumes and linked cloud storage, in physical, virtual and cloud environments.
CipherTrust transparent encryption (formerly known as Vormetric transparent encryption) delivers data-at-rest encryption with centralised key management, privileged user access control and detailed data access audit logging. This protects data wherever it resides, on-premises, across multiple clouds and within big data and container environments.
The deployment is simple, scalable and fast, with agents installed at operating file-system or device layer; encryption and decryption is transparent to all applications that run above it. CipherTrust transparent encryption is designed to meet data security compliance and best practice requirements with minimal disruption, effort and cost. The implementation is seamless and keeps both business and operational processes working without changes even during deployment and roll out. The solution works in conjunction with the FIPS 140-2 up to Level 3 compliant CipherTrust Manager, which centralises encryption key and policy management for the CipherTrust data security platform.
Transparent Data Protection
Transparent and continuous file-level encryption that protects against unauthorised access by users and processes in physical, virtual and cloud environments. Implementation is seamless and fast, keeping both business and operational processes working without changes even during deployment and roll out.
Scalable and easy to deploy
Scaling to deployments of tens of thousands of physical or virtual servers, the CipherTrust transparent encryption solution is available for Windows, Linux and Unix platforms. The enterprise encryption software can be used, deployed and maintained across physical, cloud and big data environments.
Meet Compliance and Best Practice Requirements
Encryption, access controls and data access logging are basic requirements or recommended best practices for almost all compliance and data privacy standards and mandates, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR and many others.
Define Granular Access Controls
Role-based access policies control who, what, where, when and how data can be accessed. Access controls are available for system level users and groups as well as LDAP, Active Directory, Hadoop and Container users and groups. Easily implement privileged user access controls to enable administrators to work as usual, but protect against users and groups that are potential threats to data
High-Performance Hardware Accelerated Encryption
Transparent encryption only employs strong, standard-based encryption protocols, such as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for data encryption and elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) for key exchange. The agent is FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated. The overhead from encryption is minimised using the encryption capabilities available in modern CPUs. A distributed agent-based deployment model eliminates the bottlenecks and latency that plague legacy proxy-based encryption solutions.
Broadest Operating System and Environment Support
Secure structured databases and unstructured files across data centres, cloud, containers and big data environments on Linux, Windows and Unix with a single infrastructure and management environment. Encryption, access control and data access audit logging are available without changes to infrastructure, applications or workflow for maximum control with minimal costs and resource requirements.
Comprehensive Security Intelligence
Identify and stop threats faster with detailed data access audit logs that not only satisfy compliance and forensic reporting requirements, but also enable data security analytics. Pre-built integration and dashboards that make it easy to find denied-access attempts to protected data are available for major system vendors.
Zero-Downtime Data Transformation
Eliminate the downtime required for initial encryption operations by adding the Live Data Transformation option. This patented technology allows for databases or files to be encrypted or re-keyed with a new encryption key while the data is in use without taking applications offline. There is no other data encryption solution that offers this unique capability.
