Frequently Asked Questions

Why are KeySecure and Vormetric DSM being End-of-Sale/End-of-Life?

Vormetric’s Data Security Manager (DSM) and Gemalto’s KeySecure product portfolios have helped customers protect sensitive data for over a decade and have each developed a loyal customer following for their industry-leading capabilities in key management and data encryption. To meet customer requirements for hybrid operating environments and cloud solutions, a decision was made to combine the product lines to create the next-generation CipherTrust Data Security Platform (CDSP) from Thales. CDSP supports a comprehensive set of use cases that you already rely on, manages cloud-native keys painlessly, and offers several new capabilities to keep pace with the latest innovations.

When I migrate to the CipherTrust Platform will I lose any features?

No, all use cases supported by KeySecure and Vormetric DSM are available with the CipherTrust Data Security Platform (CDSP) enabling you to carry forward your investments and take advantage of new enhancements. CDSP is centered around a key and policy manager, CipherTrust Manager, that centralizes access to the portfolio of data protection Connectors and partner integrations supporting a variety of use cases including data discovery and classification, encryption and tokenization, enterprise key management and cloud key management.

The Thales account team is here to guide you on the path to migration.
