Vormetric Data Security Solutions

Data Security Solutions for the Media and Entertainment Industry

Protect the Sensitive Data that Drives Your Business and Your Reputation

The media and entertainment industry has all the data security needs most businesses have, but it also maintains very sensitive data related to the financial and personal relationships between the organization and the people it works with to develop and distribute the creative product.

Perhaps more than in any other industry, positive personal relationships are critical to creating successful products and maintaining a positive corporate image. A data breach for a media and entertainment company can not only hurt the organization’s reputation, it can bring normal business operations to a complete halt and cost extraordinary amounts in business days, weeks and even months lost as the organization struggles to find out what happened, how and what options it has for fixing the damage.

Media and entertainment companies today need an enterprise wide approach to data security that:

  • Is transparent to users
  • Enables central management of the data security across the organization
  • Is fast and easy to implement
  • Works with many types of data
  • Works on multiple platforms
  • Protects data without having a negative impact on system response

But that’s just the beginning. Cybercriminals might be within the organization, and external cybercriminals frequently breach systems by gaining access to privileged user credentials. So, media and entertainment data security needs also to:

  • Limit data access to those who need to use it
  • Log and monitor who is accessing the data and alert managers when irregular access occurs
  • Render data useless if it is accessed by cybercriminals

The Vormetric Approach

Vormetric Data Security solutions help media and entertainment customers meet all these requirements through:

  • Data-at-rest encryption with secure key management
  • Secure access controls to the encrypted information
  • Monitoring access patterns to protected data by those who use it as part of their work
  • Recognizing and reporting unusual access

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 the entertainment and media industry across the broadest range of OS platforms, databases, cloud environments and big data implementations. This results in a 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. Data access monitoring provides another level of protection from malicious insiders, privileged users, and attacks that compromise accounts. This delivers access pattern information and can identify a potential breach in progress.
  • Vormetric Application Encryption enables organizations 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.

Be Protected in Weeks not Months, Whatever Your OS

Vormetric can work with you to install its Data Security solutions in weeks rather than months. Vormetric’s solutions work with most major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows servers in physical, virtual, cloud and big data Cardholder Data Environments (CDE).

Easy to Use and Doesn’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 enterprise, 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.

When it comes to information security, large organizations tend to focus on fire fighting rather than long-term strategy. Unfortunately, this short-sighted approach has its limits.
