For most use cases, Vormetric Transparent Encryption, meets an enterprise’s security, contractual and compliance requirements. Vormetric Transparent Encryption applies encryption and access policies “transparently” to data at rest, of any file type and in any environment, at the file or volume level without requiring any application development and maintenance efforts. However, for the applications that require field-level encryption for database, big data, PaaS or other applications there is Vormetric Application Encryption.
Vormetric Application Encryption is a library to simplify integrating application-level encryption into existing corporate applications. The application encryption library provides a set of documented standard-based APIs used to perform cryptographic and encryption key management operations. The innovative product design enables developers to choose to standard AES encryption or schema maintaining Format Preserving Encryption (FPE). Vormetric Application Encryption removes the complexity and risk of implementing an in-house encryption and key management solution. Vormetric Application Encryption supports Unicode and the library is in the process of being certified for FIPS 140-2.
