State and local government agencies in the US rely on sensitive information stored in databases and file servers to process applications that enable essential services. Almost every state has enacted government "data breach notification" laws. These laws generally require government agencies and businesses that have personal information about residents within a state to notify those residents of any unauthorized access to their information.
Thales, with its advanced data security platform, can help you comply with these laws and avoid having to undergo a costly breach notification process. Among the Best-practices for security compliance generally require:

The Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM) from Thales can enforce strong separation of duties by requiring the assignment of key and policy management to more than one data security administrator. In this manner, no one person has complete control over security activities, encryption keys, or administration. In addition, the DSM supports two-factor authentication for administrative access.
The Vormetric Data Security Platform produces detailed security event logs that are easy to integrate with SIEM systems to produce compliance and security reports. These security information logs produce an auditable trail of permitted and denied access attempts from users and processes, delivering unprecedented insight into file access activities. These security information logs can report unusual or improper data access and accelerate the detection of insider threats, hackers and the presence of advanced persistent threats (APT) that are inside the perimeter security.
Thales can work with you to install its Vormetric Data Security solutions in weeks rather than months. Thales solutions work with most major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows servers in physical, virtual, cloud and big data Cardholder Data Environments (CDE).
Vormetric Data Security makes it simple to solve security and compliance concerns by simultaneously protecting data in databases, files and Big Data nodes across public, private, hybrid clouds and traditional infrastructures. Central management of the entire data security platform makes it easy to extend data security protection and satisfy compliance requirements across the entire enterprise, growing as required, without adding new hardware or increasing operational burdens.
Customers typically report no perceptible impact to end-user experience when using Thales solutions. Vormetric Transparent Encryption performs encryption and decryption operations at the optimal location of the files system or volume manager taking advantage of hardware cryptographic acceleration, such as Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) and SPARC Niagara Crypto, to speed the encryption and decryption of data.
