Meet Cryptography as a Service, courtesy of Crypto Command Center

Crypto Command CenterIt is common to deploy encryption for the protection of sensitive and personal information in order to meet compliance needs. The security level of any encryption solution often comes down to the security of the encryption keys. And storing the keys in special-purpose hardware, such as a Hardware Security Module (HSM) is recommended by experts as a best practice

However, until now hardware encryption solutions have not provided the agility and flexibility needed in virtualized and cloud environments. Rolling out a virtual application that requires encryption, signed digital certificates, or other PKI functions can often add days or weeks to a project.

Enter Cryptography as a Service from Thales

Consolidate your enterprise key vaulting and PKI services by moving away from physical HSMs to virtualized HSMs, with Crypto Command Center - the cloud's first high-assurance key vaulting solution. 

Likewise, Service Providers can add high-value key-vaulting and PKI services to their hosted and cloud offerings that allow them to administrate the HSMs but never access their customers’ keys.

How Crypto Command Center Works

Security administrators can create a centralized pool of high assurance cryptographic resources that can be provisioned out to the people and lines of business in their organization that need them.

Administrators set up crypto service templates with predefined HSM capabilities, which users can then leverage to provision services in a standardized and compliant manner. Crypto resources can be provisioned on demand for one to thousands of HSMs simultaneously. Additionally, administrators can monitor crypto resources, generate dynamic reports, and always be up to date on the status of their HSM appliances. Having a convenient, centralized view across the device pools provides visibility into the status and health of resources, and enables administrators to be proactive in dealing with challenges before they affect service level agreements.

Introducing Cloud-Delivered Encryption

A crypto hypervisor revolutionizes the delivery of encryption. IT departments can now deliver on-demand, elastic crypto services for data protection—in minutes, not days. Our crypto hypervisor is the combination of Crypto Command Center together with the proven Thales Luna Network Hardware Security Modules (HSMs).

For the first time, high-assurance encryption services fit the cloud operations model. Now the full cost and innovation advantages of virtualization can be exploited without compromising security or compliance.

Admin- & User-Friendly Cryptography: IT maintains full, centralized control of the delivery of encryption services. Users have full control of their cryptographic resources knowing that other tenants and administrators cannot access their encryption keys.



Innovations in Cryptography

As a leader in the security market, Thales is focused on bringing strong, innovative security solutions to next-generation environments like the cloud. Powered by the Crypto Command Center and Luna Network HSMs, our crypto hypervisor represents the culmination of years of research and development:

  • Centralized Crypto Management. Administrators can manage single or groups of virtual HSMs, and publish a list of on-demand service templates for their users. These templates are easy to navigate, and users are only offered services that they have permission to initialize.

  • Virtualized Crypto Hardware. SafeNet Crypto Command Center abstracts HSMs into many dynamic crypto resources that maintain access controls and user experience as if each resource were a dedicated physical HSM. Establish an environment in which many organizations can leverage the same hardware without fear of keys being lost or stolen by other tenants, with mutli-tenancy. Even administrators will not be able to access the users’ keys.

  • Monitor crypto resources. Generate dynamic reports, improve visibility, and always be up to date on the status of your HSM appliances with a centralized, convenient view of the device pools.

  • Separation of Roles and Responsibilities in Multi-tenant Environments. Users maintain access to their key material while the central authority sets overall security policies.
