Vormetric Transparent Encryption for Amazon Web Services (AWS) protects what matters most - your data - within AWS. With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, your organization can safely make use of the flexibility and scalability available from Amazon, while meeting compliance requirements and safeguarding intellectual property without a noticeable degradation in performance. This solution is exclusively available through AWS Marketplace. The solution encrypts data within your AWS instances, provides policy-based data access controls, integrated key management, and provides detailed Security Intelligence information about data access. The solution is transparent to applications and to system management processes making it easy to deploy and operate. Data is only accessible by authorized users and processes, therefore, policy can allow privileged users (even cloud administrators) to manage systems without the risk of them having visibility to the data. The protection of AWS instances is also available with the Vormetric Data Security Platform and a “bring your own license model.”
When implementing solutions within Amazon Web Services, organizations have the same needs for data protection as any enterprise on premise installation, but with the added complication of a shared multi-tenanted underlying infrastructure that is no longer under their direct control. These needs include:
Vormetric’s data-centric security approach incorporates encryption with integrated key management, privileged user control policies, and security intelligence on data access. Key benefits of this approach include a single solution that protects databases, unstructured files, and Big Data.
With commercial tools, such as Vormetric, you can actually give certain people certain access without root-level privileges. You can encrypt your data in storage to set up roles of who actually gets to see the data. The admins can do their jobs, and they don’t get access to any data files.
