With Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Efficient Storage, users no longer need to make the choice between data security and storage efficiency. They can have both!
Flash arrays have transformed enterprise storage in data centers, offering unique characteristics that enable higher performance, efficiency, agility, and reliability. However, securing enterprise data with encryption requires a tradeoff with storage efficiency – Using encryption negates data reduction technologies like compression and deduplication. This can result in storage capacity requirements increasing as much as five times compared to those for storing unencrypted data.
With Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Efficient Storage, users can have both:
Preserve Data Reduction and Lower TCO
Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Efficient Storage provides a high degree of security for data that is ultimately stored on enterprise storage systems by encrypting data while retaining critical storage efficiencies, such as deduplication and compression. With the VTE for Efficient Storage solution, you get the best data protection possible while maintaining storage efficiency -- an industry first solution!
Establish Strong Controls
Easily implement privileged access management controls at a granular level. These enable administrators to work as usual (secure, control, manage and monitor privileged access to critical assets), while never enabling them to see the sensitive data in clear text.
Meet Compliance and Best Practice Requirements
Achieve compliance with data security regulatory mandates for data-at-rest by securing files with encryption, access controls and data access audit logging.
Transparently Protect Sensitive Data within Enterprise Storage Systems
Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Efficient Storage provides a high degree of security for data that is ultimately stored on Enterprise Storage systems by encrypting data while retaining critical storage efficiencies, such as deduplication and compression. Access policies are set and encryption keys are defined by the Vormetric Data Security Manager, which utilizes KMIP, for centralized key management.
High-Performance Hardware Accelerated Encryption
Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Efficient Storage employs only 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.
Centralized Policy and Key Management
Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Efficient Storage simplifies data security administration with centralized access policies and key management. Secure key generation and storage is provided by the Vormetric Data Security Manager, which uses KMIP to securely share keys between DSM and Storage System.
Vormetric transparent encryption enterprise encryption software 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.
