Gemalto launches cloudy security

Ominous Clouds over Dublin CityDigital security outfit Gemalto has announced the launch of SafeNet Data Protection On Demand, a centralised cloud-based services platform which it claims will help companies to protect data, meet compliance mandates and manage the security of all their sensitive information in every location.

Gemalto executive vice president for Enterprise & Cybersecurity Sebastien Cano said that businesses are challenged by the cost and complexity of protecting data across disparate IT infrastructures and hybrid cloud environments.

SafeNet Data Protection On Demand helps solve these issues by providing a single data security-as-a-service platform that integrates easily with existing IT systems, DevOps tools and cloud services to protect wherever data is created, accessed or stored.

SafeNet Data Protection On Demand makes enterprise-grade data protection accessible to companies of all of sizes – from the smallest to the largest of enterprises. With no hardware and software to buy, configure or manage and simple pay-as-you-go pricing, companies can more cost effectively and quickly deploy data protection to secure sensitive information in any environment on demand.

The big idea is that a client can integrate security across all company IT systems and removes barriers between business and DevOps, expediting go-to-market timelines.

By tying up with Gemalto’s extensive partner ecosystem they can ¬†integrate data security across their multi-cloud applications. The platform is designed to work with many of the most widely used IT products and technology companies such as Amazon Web Services, Dell EMC, Google, IBM, Microsoft, NetApp, Huawei, Oracle and Salesforce. In addition, customers can quickly develop and build secure higher order use cases through proprietary and third-party APIs.

Cano said: “Complexity has always been a pain point for organizations when it comes to deploying encryption and key management, and the growth of cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) will only magnify this challenge.”
