To keep current clients and win new ones, managed service providers need an enterprise-wide security platform that not only addresses today’s security challenges and demands but is flexible enough to meet tomorrow’s. Under constant pressure from both current and prospective customers to enhance their data security, managed service providers are seeing RFPs and RFIs that include ever more data security questions that are ever more challenging to answer. In addition, clients and prospects are calling for real accountability.
Security is the chief impediment to more pervasive adoption of managed-service models. By addressing security concerns, service providers can establish strong market differentiation, expand their presence in existing accounts, and boost market share.
Potential managed-service customers are concerned about compliance, security and trusting service providers themselves, when they consider moving workloads with sensitive data to managed-service environments.
The Vormetric Data Security Platform from Thales makes it simple for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) providers to extend their product offerings to include data security as a service offerings (DSaaS).
The Vormetric solution from Thales features:
The Vormetric Data Security Platform features a flexible policy and key management deployment architecture, so you can support multiple implementation options, and tailor your approach to your customers’ specific security demands and business models. Leveraging the Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM) you can offer support for the following key and policy management deployment approaches:
No matter which appliance or hosting approach your customers choose, you can help your customers ensure that unauthorized users—even your own system administrators—never get access to administrative controls and cryptographic assets. With Vormetric Data Security Manager’s granular access controls, separation of duties, and detailed auditing capabilities, you can give customers the visibility and control they need to restrict administrative access and centrally manage policies.
In addition, if your customers need to enable employees and partners to work with the data without seeing the actual values, Vormetric Tokenization and Dynamic Masking lets administrators establish policies to return an entire field tokenized or dynamically mask parts of a field. With the solution’s format-preserving tokenization capabilities, managers can restrict access to sensitive assets, yet at the same time, format the protected data in a way that enables many users to do their jobs.
