The Challenge

Stringent data privacy regulations, the risk of data breaches, and the migration of databases to the public cloud are driving many organizations to implement database encryption. Though most databases offer integrated encryption capabilities, encryption keys must be stored in highly secure HSMs and separately from the data, to align with security best practices and to comply with data security regulations such as the GDPR. Secure key storage is critical, as is an enterprise-scale solution to manage the key lifecycle, access policies, and auditing across an ever-expanding hybrid and multicloud infrastructure.  
Transparent Database Encryption Challenge

Fortanix Solution

Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) enables the encryption of select database records, and controls which apps are allowed to access the data. The process is completely transparent to the application,  no changes are required. 
Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) is a unified data security platform that provides integrated key management, hardware security module (HSM), and tokenization services to support database encryption across hybrid and multicloud environments. 
The platform is easy to use with an intuitive web-based user interface, and easy to integrate with leading databases using standards-based interfaces such as PKCS#11. 
By simplifying database encryption, Fortanix enables businesses to accelerate their pervasive data encryption initiatives and reduce the risk of a data breach.
