Data Security Solutions for Software as a Service (SaaS)

Thales enterprise data protection solutions for SaaS providers accelerate SaaS adoption

SaaS Providers

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) can save users time and money and offers rapid response to dynamic business demands. But SaaS customers require comprehensive security, often based on compliance mandates, for sensitive data stored in SaaS clouds. Thales enterprise data security solutions enable SaaS providers to fulfil customer requirements with data security that doesn't sacrifice business agility.

Cloud security responsibilities

If you hold anyone's sensitive data, you're partially responsible for it. You face compliance mandates for data protection such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA and state data breach notification laws.

Your customers and prospects have the questions

You're likely to be handed the Cloud Security Alliance Consensus Assessment Initiative Questionnaire, or CAIQ, which includes queries such as:

  • Do you have procedures in place to protect against unauthorised access to system resources?
  • Do you have platform and data appropriate encryption that uses open/validated formats and standard algorithms?
  • Are your encryption keys maintained by the cloud consumer or a trusted key management provider?
  • Do you support secure deletion (e.g. degaussing/cryptographic wiping) of archived and backed-up data as determined by the tenant?

You need to have the security solutions

Avoid breach notifications and have the SaaS security solutions your customer and prospects require.

CipherTrust transparent encryption from Thales

Solve security mandates and avoid data breach notifications with CipherTrust transparent encryption from Thales. Massively more powerful in solving SaaS data security challenges than full disk encryption, CipherTrust transparent encryption:

  • Enables you to provide customer-specific keys
  • Provides comprehensive access controls to give your customers the highest assurance
  • Gives you security intelligence you need to detect compromised credentials faster!

Key management as a service

If you already have an enterprise data security architecture based on encryption in place, you can fulfil the CAIQ mandate for customer-managed keys with key management as a service, or KMaaS.
