Thales CipherTrust Manager for NetApp Cloud ONTAP is a hardened, 64-bit, virtual security appliance that provides centralized key management and data access policies for NetApp Cloud ONTAP. Thales key management simplifies the operational challenges of managing encryption keys, making sure keys are secure and information is always available to authorized users across your NetApp Cloud ONTAP environment.
Thales CipherTrust Manager maintains data confidentiality on NetApp Cloud ONTAP through efficient centralized key management and by enforcing customized security policies surrounding data access. This combination of a modern storage infrastructure and Thales key management delivers the peace of mind that your data and its encryption keys are protected against unauthorized access, while simultaneously making the most efficient use of your storage investments.
Thales CipherTrust Manager centralizes all key management activities, including key signing, role-based administration, quorum control, backup and distribution of encryption keys, and an optional hardware root of trust using Thales Hardware Security Modules or Amazon CloudHSM service.
Meeting compliance mandates in the cloud is greatly simplified through verifiable and auditable enterprise key management all keys, certificates, and passwords are securely managed; key ownership is clearly defined; and key lifecycle management is logged to provide a non-repudiative audit trail.
