SafeNet ProtectFile: Enterprise File Encryption

Protect Unstructured Data at the File System-level

File Encryption IconSafeNet ProtectFile provides transparent and automated file-system level encryption of sensitive data in the distributed enterprise, including Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Storage Area Network (SAN), and Network Attached Storage (NAS) servers using CIFS/NFS file sharing protocols.

Our enterprise file encryption solution secures unstructured data on servers, such as credit card numbers, personal information, logs, passwords, configurations, and more in a broad range of files. Examples include word processing documents, spreadsheets, images, database files, exports, archives, and backups, and big data implementations. SafeNet ProtectFile can be deployed across on-premises, virtual, public cloud, and hybrid environments.

Additional SafeNet ProtectFile Highlights

  • Works in tandem with SafeNet KeySecure, a FIPS 140-2 up to Level 3 validated enterprise key manager to provide centralized administration of all keys and policies
  • Granular access controls, including the ability to prevent rogue administrators from impersonating another user with access to sensitive data
  • Built-in and automated key rotation and data re-keying
  • Comprehensive logging and auditing capabilities to track access to encrypted data and keys
  • Remote, silent automation tools for quick and easy deployment in large and small environments

As opposed to systems that secure a perimeter or device, SafeNet ProtectFile secures the data itself. The SafeNet ProtectFile integration with Amazon S3 ensures that files are protected regardless of whether the file resides in S3 or on your desktop. For customers that need to demonstrate that they maintain control of their data even as it resides in the cloud, SafeNet ProtectFile is the perfect solution.
