Data Security in Virtual Machines
When an organization runs sensitive data in fluid virtual machines, that data needs to be secured through robust, persistent, and auditable controls. Without virtual server security, the organization exposes itself to data breaches, penalties for non-compliance and a sullied reputation.
Comprehensive Data Security for Multiple Platforms
Vormetric Transparent Encryption from Thales delivers the virtual server security capabilities you need to safeguard your sensitive assets. Whether you’re running VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine), or any other standard virtualization platform, Thales can help you address your critical virtual machine security compliance requirements, with unparalleled efficiency and low cost of ownership.
Data at Rest Encryption in Virtual Machines
Thales enables you to encrypt data at the file system or volume level within virtual machines (VMs) and then use fine-grained, centrally managed policies to control access to protected data. As a result, you can enforce security policies and track access, no matter where data is copied or moved.
Granular Access Controls
Vormetric Transparent Encryption from Thales provides fine-grained, policy-based controls that restrict access to encrypted data. Privileged users—whether cloud, virtualization, or storage administrators—can manage systems, without gaining access to encrypted data, unless they have expressly been granted permissions to do so.
For fast rollouts and integration within virtualized machines, both web and command-line level APIs provide access to the Vormetric Data Security environment for policy management, deployment, and monitoring.
By delivering capabilities for segregating security management domains, Thales helps organizations address internal security policies and compliance mandates. Further, these security capabilities enable service providers to establish strong boundaries between customer environments, while still leveraging centralized visibility and control of security policies and activities.
Flexible Central Administration
Vormetric Transparent Encryption from Thales offers support for implementation in a range of Linux and Windows operating systems. All policy and encryption key administration is done through the Vormetric Data Security Manager, which can be deployed as a physical appliance or virtualized service, and either on or off premise, according to your objectives and environments.
