Security breaches are on the rise and new government mandates, like GDPR, require that organiza-tions keep customer information secure and confidential at all times. Encrypting all data while at rest, in motion, and in use is now a security and compliance necessity. Disk Level Encryption is a technology being used by most companies to help ensure they meet these mandates and ensuring they do not become the next big breach. Using encryption with FIPS compliant HSMs helps thwart malicious insider or compromised root user threats.
The Zettaset XCrypt Data Encryption Platform now integrates with Fortanix DSM HSMs, providing a higher level of security and availability. The Fortanix DSM HSM plus Zettaset XCrypt Data Encryption Platform protect the encryption keys by isolating them from the client storage media, providing customers with NIST FIPS 140-2 Level-3 security.
In the age of big data breaches, a determined cybercriminal will break through the periphery of any database environment. Protecting the perimeter with firewalls and packet snoopers is no longer enough, and good security practice dictates a layered approach, with in-depth defense. The risk of insider threats through misconfigurations or deliberate actions continues to increase.
The combined Fortanix / Zettaset solution provides for Full Disk Encryption, utilizing FIPS 140-2, Level-3 certified HSMs to help meet GDPR mandates.
