Skyhigh and SafeNet join forces for cloud data protection

Skyhigh and SafeNet join forces for cloud data protection 

 “More and more organizations are asking to encrypt their data in business-critical SaaS applications such as Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Microsoft Office 365 with customer-managed keys,” explained Chris Cesio, VP, Business Development and Alliances, Skyhigh Networks. “Through integration with SafeNet’s leading key management solutions, we’re providing a scalable, standards-based approach that gives customers flexibility of deployment models so that they can leverage the benefits of cloud services while ensuring the best possible security controls.”

According to Skyhigh, with Skyhigh Secure enterprises can scale, reduce work latency and save the cost of on-premise deployments. Skyhigh Secure has an encryption gateway, cloud-hosted and hybrid deployment options.

These options let users manage their keys through SafeNet solutions and integrate with Skyhigh to secure their key distribution method. Companies can securely store, centralize and manage their encryption and keys for cloud applications up to FIPS 140-2 Level 3-compliance if necessary.

“Customer controlled keys with strong key management are essential for illustrating security, compliance and control of data in the cloud,” said David Etue, VP, corporate development strategy, SafeNet. “SafeNet and Skyhigh are working together to ensure that security teams can uniformly view, control, and administer cryptographic policies and keys for all their sensitive data, wherever it resides.”

The gateway option integrates management solutions like SafeNet KeySecure via the Key Management Interoperability Protocol and/or with the SafeNet Luna SA network for secure storage. Users can use this separately or combined as per their needs.

Users can encrypt data in the cloud securely with SafeNet Virtual KeySecure, a purpose-built virtual security appliance. Customers can also securely store their encryption in AWS CloudHSM cloud.
