Gemalto announced that its SafeNet KeySecure solution has been validated for use with the latest release of NetApp Volume Encryption (NVE) data management solution.
As a result, NetApp customers do not need to encrypt the entire disk drive; they can choose to encrypt granularly at the volume level without the need and additional cost of purchasing self encrypting drives (SEDs), while retaining key benefits such as centralized key management and access control, better compliance, and high availability.
Data privacy and data security continues to be a key focus for organizations, especially in light of industry compliance standards such as US health standard (HIPAA) or payment card standard (PCI-DSS) and the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), said Gemalto.
SafeNet KeySecure centralizes cryptographic processing, security policy and key management, while offering NetApp customers the ability to store and manage encryption keys centrally and separately, away from the encrypted data ensuring security and facilitating compliance.
The Gemalto SafeNet KeySecure solution builds on the NetApp Data Fabric software approach, which simplifies and integrates data management across the cloud and on premises to accelerate digital transformation. On top of having more granular data encryption and keeping keys separate, customers will have the freedom to choose any storage media, have flexible deployment options, audit trails, separation of duties and ecosystem support.
