Thirty Days of Free ProtectV™ and Virtual KeySecure to Enhance Security for Customers Using the AWS Cloud*

BALTIMORE
January 21, 2014

SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in data protection, today announced a thirty-day free trial of its ProtectV virtual encryption solutions and Virtual KeySecure via AWS Marketplace on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Financial services, health care organizations, information services, enterprises and high tech businesses can now run full production-level proofs of concept for a full month with no cost using SafeNet’s cloud-based encryption solutions while maintaining control and compliance.   

“We're excited to add free trial versions of SafeNet's ProtectV and Virtual KeySecure products to the AWS Marketplace,” said Terry Hanold, vice president, cloud commerce, AWS. “With these offerings, customers can start using SafeNet software in a matter of minutes, at no additional charge during the trial. Shifting to production usage is friction-free, with no migration required, and software charges simply appearing on the customer's AWS bill.”     

ProtectV and Virtual KeySecure are currently available on AWS Marketplace, and both now offer thirty-day trials ProtectV is an encryption solution for virtual instances and Virtual KeySecure is a hardened software appliance that manages and securely stores the encryption keys for ProtectV.  The trial is for a full thirty days, when customers sign-up between January 9, 2014 and April 1, 2014, and will be available on AWS Marketplace.  After the thirty-day trial, ProtectV and Virtual KeySecure can be converted to an hourly or monthly pricing model on AWS Marketplace, depending on which option the customer has selected.      

“As organizations migrate more sensitive workloads and data to the cloud, security is now top of mind,” said Wendy Nather, research director, Enterprise Security Practice, 451 Research.  “The ability for companies to easily implement strong data protection and security measures in the cloud will play a major role in their decision making.  As companies like SafeNet make their encryption and key management offerings available for cloud platforms such as AWS, enterprises can feel more confident that they are creating strong security across the board.”        

SafeNet’s encryption and key management solutions provide customers with high levels of data protection for sensitive data, whether in the cloud or on-premises. Combining the flexibility of the AWS cloud and strength of SafeNet’s encryption offerings creates a convenient solution for customers to optimize the level of security required for even the most critical workloads.      

“Organizations have recognized that encryption and strong key management are essential to illustrating control and compliance for high value information in the cloud, but might not have known how to get started,” said David Etue, vice president, corporate development strategy, SafeNet.  “With free trials of SafeNet offerings in the AWS Marketplace, we’ve made it simple for customers to see how easy it is to deploy a robust cloud encryption framework.”
