VMAX

VMAXBackup and StorageembeddedData-at-Rest Encryption and Key Management with VMAX and KeySecureThe VMAX and KeySecure integration

The integration of Gemalto's SafeNet KeySecure external key management appliance with VMAX storage platforms offers customers a comprehensive key management and data encryption platform providing the following advantages:

  • Leverages OASIS standard KMIP-based external key management protocol
  • Features centralized key management and auditing for security compliance objectives
  • Is a highly-available and resilient environment for long-term key storage external to the VMAX storage platform
  • Is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 capability using KeySecure with HSMs
  • Ability to temporarily decommission VMAX storage platform for secure transport by storing keys in SafeNet KeySecure

Each VMAX storage platform with the Data-at-Rest Encryption feature can be configured to connect to one or more KeySecure appliances at a customer's data center. It is recommended that at least two KeySecure appliances are configured in a cluster for high-availability. There is no encryption key dependency between VMAX storage platforms, so independent KeySecure appliances/clusters can be configured at each site.

Dell EMC's interoperability validation matrix maintains the most up-to-date list of VMAX-supported versions of Gemalto SafeNet KeySecure.
