SafeNet Teams with Industry Leaders to Boost Data Security

SafeNet Extends Data Security Ecosystem to More than 200 Technology Partners Worldwide to Help IT Organizations Enhance Data Protection across Fragmented IT Landscapes

BALTIMORE
September 23, 2014

SafeNet, Inc ., a global leader in data protection, today announced continued momentum for its SafeNet Cipher Technology Partner Program and data security ecosystem with the addition of several new major partners, including ACI Worldwide , Blue Coat Systems, Inc. , F5 Networks , and Google .  The addition of these new partners pushes the number of SafeNet product and service integrations to more than 500 from over 200 technology companies worldwide, creating one of the largest data security ecosystems in the industry.

Today enterprises buy, build and therefore have to manage hundreds of applications, products, and services from many different vendors in order to develop and deliver services, store data, communicate, and support operations. As a result, IT organizations often have to manage data security in silos and lack the ability to protect data and secure users access to applications and information across IT infrastructures that often leverage a mix of cloud, on-premises and virtualized technologies. 

By integrating its industry-leading data encryption, key management, and authentication solutions with the most widely deployed cloud computing, networking, payment, security, software, and storage technologies, SafeNet empowers enterprises’ IT organizations to centrally manage data security and strengthen user access across more technology products, applications, and services than any other data protection provider in the world.

Garrett Bekker, senior analyst at 451 Research: “As cloud, virtualization, and mobile have greatly expanded the use cases for encryption and authentication, SafeNet’s has architected its products to address the complexities brought on by these technology trends.  SafeNet’s partner strategy supplements its platform approach to product development by making it easier to tie together SafeNet's proprietary products with third-party offerings, providing customers with a more holistic approach to protecting data and securing user access to that data.”

Sangeeta Anand, SVP of product management and product marketing, F5 Networks: “Customers rely on integrated security solutions to improve application security, while reducing operational cost and complexity. By integrating F5 and SafeNet, we are providing customers a simple way to transform data protection in the cloud, on-premise and in virtualized environments to deliver SSL Everywhere."

Andy Welsh, director of partner alliances, Accuvant: “SafeNet realizes the importance of creating an ecosystem where their encryption and authentication solutions integrate with widely deployed technologies for IT.  By combining SafeNet, complementary technologies and Accuvant services, we can deliver holistic solutions that help to create a more secure world for data and applications at a time when the complexity of security has become much more of a real business issue.”

David Etue, vice president of corporate development strategy, SafeNet: “Enterprises are deploying an increasing number of cloud, virtualized and hybrid IT technologies, which has made it much more difficult to secure data and protect access to sensitive applications and information.  Data is being stored in more environments and managing secure access to applications for both employees and third-parties has become more complicated.  Through our Technology Partners, we offer the largest inter-connected data protection ecosystem that allows IT and security professionals to protect both data and the users accessing the data, whether in the cloud or in the data center.”
