FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CIVILIAN AGENCIES

Vormetric Data Security Solutions

Managers of Federal Civilian Agencies face a dizzying array of data security needs general to all government Agencies and Departments and specific to those dealing with civilian issues:

These Agencies and Departments are faced with:

  • Insider threats, such as those illustrated by Snowden and Manning
  • Stolen credentials and advanced persistent threats (APTs)
  • The need to comply with Federal mandates and regulations
  • The need for scalability
  • The need to move to the Cloud

But perhaps more specific to these Civilian Agencies are the needs for:

  • Securing civilian personal identification information (PII)
  • Securing personal healthcare information
  • Protecting data that impacts our critical infrastructure, such as that involved in managing the flow of energy, water, food, financial, and political resources that affect the lives of our citizens at a local and national level

The Vormetric Approach

Vormetric Data Security solutions help Federal Civilian Agencies comply with all these requirements wherever they keep data through:

  1. Securing unstructured data such as Office files, Sharepoint repositories, Exchange, Virtual desktop instances in an encrypted container
  2. Policy Driven access to data for Civilian employees and contractors while eliminating access by Root and Sys Admin roles
  3. Delivering Critical transactional and behavioral information that feeds into enterprise event management systems such as; Splunk, Arcsight, Nitro, LogRythm, and
  4. Tokenization and masking

Vormetric Data Security solutions:

  • Provide rapid deployment to gain concise mission alignment
  • Meet or exceed civilian agency related requirements relative to cryptographic standards
  • Deploy a strategic, data centric approach for the enterprise

And, they have little, if any, negative impact on customer system performance.

How Vormetric Solutions Work

The Vormetric Data Security Platform is the only solution with a single extensible framework for protecting data-at-rest under the diverse requirements of Federal Civilian Agencies across the broadest range of OS platforms, databases, cloud environments and big data implementations. The result is low total cost of ownership, as well as simple, efficient deployment and operation.

  • Vormetric Transparent Encryption provides file and volume level data-at-rest encryption, secure key management and access controls required by regulation and compliance regimes.
  • Vormetric Data Security Intelligence provides another level of protection from malicious insiders, privileged users, APTs and other attacks that compromise data by delivering the access pattern information that can identify an incident in progress.
  • Vormetric Application Encryption enables agencies to easily build encryption capabilities into internal applications at the field and column level.
  • Vormetric Key Management enables centralized management of encryption keys for other environments and devices including KMIP compatible hardware, Oracle and SQL Server TDE master keys and digital certificates.
  • Vormetric Tokenization with Dynamic Masking lets administrators establish policies to return an entire field tokenized or dynamically mask parts of a field. With the solution’s format-preserving tokenization capabilities, you can restrict access to sensitive assets, yet at the same time, format the protected data in a way that enables many users to do their jobs.

Compliance

Vormetric security solutions are designed to help you comply with:

Be Protected in Weeks not Months Whatever Your OS

Vormetric works with Federal Agencies to install its Data Security solutions in weeks rather than months. The Vormetric solutions work with most major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows servers in physical, virtual, cloud and big data environments.

Easy to Use and Won’t Hurt System Performance

Vormetric Data Security makes it simple to solve security and compliance concerns by simultaneously defending data in databases, files and Big Data nodes across public, private, hybrid clouds and traditional infrastructures. Central management of the entire data security platform makes it easy to extend data security protection and satisfy compliance requirements across the entire Agency, growing as required, without adding new hardware or increasing operational burdens.

Customers typically report no perceptible impact to end-user experience when using Vormetric solutions. Vormetric performs encryption and decryption operations at the optimal location of the files system or volume manager taking advantage of hardware cryptographic acceleration, such as Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) and SPARC Niagara Crypto, to speed the encryption and decryption of data.

Collectively, this leads to the most cost-effective solution on the market. For more information, contact us.
