MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., November 8, 2022

Fortanix® Inc., the data-first multicloud security company and the pioneer of Confidential Computing, today announced it has launched a "free tier” edition of its popular Data Security Manager (DSM) SaaS offering, allowing users to explore some of the industry’s most popular use cases. Available now, the new free tier edition, named Fortanix DSM Explorer, is fully backed by Fortanix, including the ability to raise support tickets and receive updates and fixes.

DSM Explorer gives users the option to choose one of five curated solutions focused on popular use cases centering around protecting privacy, compliance with regulations, enhanced security control, and better management and control of cryptographic keys. The choices are:

  • Tokenization: Secure sensitive data such as PII with random, format-preserving strings of characters known as “tokens” to achieve security and protect privacy
  • Google Cloud External Key Management: Enhanced security control by managing Google Cloud keys outside the cloud
  • Google Workspace Client-Side Encryption: Retain sole authority over cryptographic keys for encrypting data and documents in Google Workspace
  • Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) on AWS: Retain cryptographic key control for initiatives related to AWS
  • BYOK on Microsoft Azure: Retain cryptographic key control for initiatives related to Microsoft Azure

“We are thrilled to introduce the DSM Explorer edition of our very popular, feature-rich Data Security Manager SaaS offering that is already being used by some of the largest enterprises and government agencies in the world,” said Faiyaz Shahpurwala, chief product officer at Fortanix. “Now, a wider range of organizations that also have to adhere to increasing regulations around the world can benefit from a free tier by way of reduced engagement friction, accelerated cloud adoption and compliance with privacy and security requirements.”

Fortanix Data Security Manager is a simple-to-deploy, yet highly scalable data security platform that delivers a unified suite of services including encryption, multicloud key management, tokenization and more. Fortanix DSM is offered in two editions, both backed by FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified Fortanix Hardware Security Modules (HSMs).

While the DSM Enterprise edition provides organizations access to the full suite of data security use cases, the new DSM Explorer edition is ideal for enterprises with selective use cases, or smaller businesses with restricted budgets and limited requirements for cloud key management
