PostgreSQL data security from Gemalto

Fortunately, PostgreSQL users can have a reliable security approach in encryption. Encryption mitigate threats posed by hackers and privileged users, yet also addresses many of the compliance concerns that surround sensitive customer data.

Data secured with encryption remains protected from unauthorized wherever it travels or resides precisely because security is attached directly to the data itself. Gemalto offers customers a number of encryption and tokenization solutions to secure data across its lifecycle anywhere in the enterprise.

Protect your files, folders and shares transparently

File Encryption Icon

SafeNet ProtectFile is an easy to deploy, versatile file-system level encryption solution that secures PostgreSQL database data. As an agent that operates at the operating system layer, organizations don't need to change their applications, infrastructure or operations for encryption to keep their data safe. Its versatility extends beyond securing PostgreSQL databases. SafeNet ProtectFile can also be used to secure such databases as IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, NoSQL, MySQL, Sybase and SAP HANA all with minimal performance impacts.

Built-in policy-based access controls restrict access to encrypted data to mitigate the risks posed by privileged users such as database or cloud administrators while giving authorized users access to the data they need.

Since encryption attaches security directly to the file itself, any backed-up or replicated copy of the database with remain encrypted to keep data safe wherever it goes.

Format-preserving tokenization for PostgreSQL

Tokenization Icon

SafeNet Tokenization protects high value information in PostgreSQL databases by replacing it with a surrogate value or "token" without changing the database table or the file layout.

Systems protected with tokenization are removed from the audit scope of certain regulations such as PCI DSS.

And, since SafeNet Tokenization is integrated into the application layer, no architectural changes are required to the PostgreSQL implementation.
