Organizations are increasing their data encryption initiatives, with security and privacy regulations such as the GDPR and Schrems II acting as a catalyst. Managing keys across on-premises and multicloud infrastructures at scale introduces significant operational complexity and potential compliance gaps. Fortanix gives AWS users a centralized solution to create, back up, and manage their encryption keys, no matter if data is used on AWS, on-premises, or on another cloud platform. With Fortanix, AWS users get full custody of their root keys and hyper-secure storage on FIPS-140-2 Level 3 certified HSMs.
