“Gartner forecasts end-user spending on public cloud services to reach $396 billion in 2021 and grow 21.7% to reach $482 billion in 2022.”
But cloud platforms are still considered untrustworthy and this lack of confidence in the data protection of public cloud is limiting organizations from moving workloads to the cloud. Given the ongoing surge in cyberattacks and privacy regulations, most organizations are looking for greater control over their cloud data and keys.
With Fortanix Data Security Manager, bring own keys to cloud applications/workloads, whether it’s on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure or Salesforce. With Bring Your Own Key (BYOK), also known as Hold Your Own Key (HYOK), Fortanix allows customers to bring or import their own master key (CMK), which the cloud provider stores in their key management system (KMS) and encrypts all Data Encryption Keys (DEKs) under that key(s). This gives organizations greater control over their data and meet the most stringent privacy requirements.
Why Bring-Your-Own-Key (BYOK)/Hold-Your-Own-Key (HYOK) approach to securing cloud data
What We Do
Get full control over keys.
Customers can bring or import a master key which the cloud provider stores within its KMS. This allows customers to retain ownership of the master key material and have greater control over the data stored in the cloud.
Additional security components with built-in encryption, key management, and tokenization that can be managed from a single integrated platform.
Stop data breaches with kill switch
Solution provides a central kill switch and a fully managed disaster recovery for all your keys. Key material can be deleted from Fortanix to make a cloud key in "Pending Import" state and stop data breaches. Key material can also be reclaimed by importing it back into the cloud KMS.
Secure data across locations and regions
Offers greater flexibility as the same keys can be used to secure data across multiple accounts, locations, and regions.
Manage multicloud keys from a single pane
Fortanix allows you to manage and control multicloud keys in a completely cloud agnostic way. Organizations can keep full custody of their keys in a FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified HSM.
Get centralized control and audit of keys
Fortanix enables organizations to apply central control and audit the keys using quorum approvals and audit logs.
