According to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute a comprehensive encryption strategy is being adopted by more organizations, primarily to assist in preventing data breaches and meeting compliance requirements.  Key management is also a critical pain.

Vormetric solutions provide capabilities that enable organizations to meet compliance and regulatory mandates for encryption, such as PCI DSS 3.0 and HIPAA/HITECH, as well as helping them to prevent data breaches.  Now available on a single, integrated platform and infrastructure set, these integrated encryption and key management solutions enable organizations to meet multiple sets of data encryption requirements, including:

  • Vormetric Transparent Encryption – Providing file and volume level encryption, key management, policy management, access control and security intelligence capabilities across physical, virtual, big data and cloud environments.  Transparent Encryption requires no changes to applications, infrastructure or operational procedures while providing strong data protection.
  • Vormetric Application Encryption – This new solution adds capabilities for applications and environments to encrypt selected data as needed.  A developer oriented solution, features include key management, APIs, interfaces and sample code that enable powerful, flexible control over what, how, where, when and by whom data is encrypted and decrypted. In turn, these features and controls allow customers to address extended data protection use cases, including encryption of specific database fields, files, customer specific data (even within multi-tenant, shared use applications), and other data-at-rest.  

The results of this single platform approach are greater efficiency and lower costs.  Instead of multiple infrastructure sets, integrations, vendors, maintenance requirements, training, deployment and resource allocations, organizations can easily use Vormetric's single platform to meet multiple encryption use cases, saving both time and money.

"With the addition of Vormetric Application Encryption to the Vormetric Data Protection Platform, we have created a single, flexible, centralized capability for organizations to meet legal and industry governance requirements that mandate protection of data," said Alan Kessler CEO of Vormetric.  "As malicious attacks, hacks and infiltrations increase in effectiveness and frequency, these new capabilities enable customers to extend their data protection environment directly into their most critical applications – defending their data at the source."

"With the recent expansion of threats, both compliance and legal regulation driven data protection requirements have grown, along with our customers' needs for data security. Vormetric customers have clearly expressed the need and desire for us to extend our Data Security Platform to protect critical applications. Vormetric Application Encryption is a direct response to this need.  These new capabilities contribute to Vormetric's overarching mission: to provide an easily accessible, scalable solution to defend data wherever it resides."
