Application-Level Encryption

Fortanix provides a developer and cloud-friendly key management and encryption solution to keep data secure at the application level.


More and more apps are operating on private data. And most of the developers don’t have the time or expertise to implement data privacy and security. Encryption is the only way developers can keep their apps secure. Developers also need to add in additional layers of security. They need to think about how the app data is being accessed and provide strong authentication controls.

Fortanix offers a comprehensive Data Security as a Service (DSaaS) platform that provides integrated hardware security module (HSM), key management, encryption and tokenization capabilities. Using APIs, developers can easily integrate encryption, data access control and key management into the application. Rest APIs can also be used to tokenize sensitive data.

Highest level data security with HSM access

With a FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified appliance, encryption keys and tokens get the highest level of security. Tamper resistant hardware enables developers to execute sensitive code inside the secure execution environment of an HSM.

Support for APIs developers already use

For application consumption, it offers restful APIs that developers already use to enable modern cloud apps, as well as mobile apps, and supports traditional crypto interfaces such as KMIP, PKCS#11, JCE, CAPI and more enabling easy application integration. For C/C++ programmers, solution provides a PKCS#11 interface through library. Java programmers can access the platform through the JCE interface and through Java SDK.

Effective policy management with role-based access

Fortanix provides policy-based app level encryption with selective access based on segregation of users and roles providing security and privacy of data, while also enabling compliance with regulations, such as, PCI-DSS, GDPR.
