Cloud and virtualization gives you agility and efficiency to instantly roll out new services and expand your infrastructure. But the lack of physical control, or defined entrance and egress points, bring a whole host of cloud data security issues – data co-mingling, privileged user abuse, snapshots and backups, data deletion, data leakage, geographic regulatory requirements, cloud super-admins, and many more.
Fortunately, Gemalto's proven SafeNet two-factor authentication, encryption, and enterprise key management solutions turn any cloud environment into a trusted and compliant environment by solving the critical challenges of data governance, control, and ownership - no matter where you store your data.
Snapshots and backups are taken daily, or even hourly, and automatically stored in the cloud. Do you know where they’ve been stored, or who can move and copy them? Can you trace unauthorized copying of data?
Virtualization and cloud computing require cooperation between security, storage, server, application, and cloud security admins – all with access to your most sensitive data. With this number of people, the risks of failing an audit, or an admin going rogue, grow exponentially.
In minutes, a disgruntled employee can load an entire virtual machine onto a thumb drive. Virtual data is easily lost or exposed as it moves between VMs or in the cloud. Can you prove that authorized users are accessing your data within their defined policies? Can you block access to compromised information?
SafeNet identity and data protection solutions help organizations that want to utilize Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, IBM Softlayer, and VMware public cloud environments as well as applications developed on the Cloud Foundry platform.
Gemalto SafeNet ProtectV is a complete, well-designed solution that runs seamlessly in AWS environments. ProtectV gives us a robust, well-defined process for protecting data, so we can effectively retain the control we need over our sensitive information, harnessing the business benefits of AWS cloud offerings securely.

Gemalto has developed a comprehensive set of cloud security solutions so that businesses can enjoy the full benefits of cloud computing while maintaining control in virtual environments. Our SafeNet solutions provide a data-centric approach, and allow for the expansion of the existing cloud computing security. The end result: a seamless and secure cloud deployment.
More and more organizations are optimizing their environments by moving workloads to virtual machines (VMs) and the cloud. But many people hold on to the idea that virtualization isn’t a viable option because of the highly sensitive data they need to store and manage. On the contrary, with the right security mechanisms, any organization can migrate high-value data to the cloud or virtual data center.
Cloud Migration Solutions: Prepare for cloud computing by securing your data center.
Virtual Data Center Security: Encrypt and secure the entire contents of your virtual machines, protecting sensitive assets from theft or exposure.
Gemalto offers a complete ecosystem of SafeNet security solutions that combine persistent protection, flexible encryption, identity protection, and secure communications. With these capabilities, Gemalto customers gain complete control over how data is isolated, protected and shared – even in multi-tenant cloud environments.
SafeNet ProtectV: Unify encryption and control across virtualized and cloud environments, improving your business agility and lowering your costs.
SafeNet KeySecure: Centralizes the management of encryption keys used for the protection of sensitive data in virtualized and cloud environments.
SafeNet ProtectFile: Encrypt unstructured data and control access to sensitive folders and files.
SafeNet ProtectDB: Database encryption for the sensitive corporate and customer information stored in databases in the cloud.
While the migration of applications to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) enables dramatic savings for the company as well as improved access for users, this means that there is sensitive data in an environment that is not owned or under the control of the company. Without active protection of the applications, the potential risks associated with the loss of control and trust are significant.
SafeNet ProtectApp: An application encryption solution deployed in combination with
SafeNet KeySecure that supports a broad range of the most widely used Web application servers and enterprise applications – including those hosted on virtual machines and in the cloud.
SaaS Security: Protect access to cloud-based applications via centrally-managed strong authentication.
Gemalto's cloud-delivered SafeNet authentication and encryption solutions give organizations the means to improve responsiveness while protecting the sensitive data being accessed and created by users from an increasing amount and variety of endpoints.
Authentication-as-a-Service: Enables organizations to apply strong authentication onto multiple endpoints and address access control vulnerabilities.

Cryptography-as-a-Service: IT departments can now deliver on-demand, elastic crypto services for data protection via cloud environments. Establish a pool of pre-configured hardware security module (HSM) resources, and provide those resources to the teams that need them with SafeNet Crypto Command Center.

The virtualized nature of the cloud removes many of the control points that have traditionally helped protect sensitive information stored in-house. Administrators should have key managent controls in place to ensure that they are the only ones with control of that data's cryptographic keys – especially when that data resides in the cloud.
SafeNet Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) provide FIPS and Common Criteria-certified storage of cryptographic keys, centralized key and policy management, sophisticated encryption, and a wide range of other control features that form the basis for secure, compliant cloud data operations.
Organizations using a mix of on-site data centers and cloud storage must ensure high-speed, low-latency, and – above all – secure communication between these environments. With SafeNet
high-speed encryptors, companies can secure communications over all cloud-based and internally hosted sites, increase productivity, lower costs, and improve organizational flexibility.Learn About SafeNet High-Speed Encryption
