File Level Encryption
Right now, sensitive and regulated data could be anywhere. Some encryption alternatives can help you secure data in specific systems, for example, a specific kind of database. However, what happens if a spreadsheet report that contains sensitive data is extracted from the database?
To establish strong protections, IT teams need a central encryption platform that can secure sensitive data wherever it resides—and that’s why so many organizations rely on Vormetric Transparent Encryption. With this encryption solution, you can secure sensitive data in structured databases and unstructured files—including spreadsheets, word documents, presentations, graphics, and more.
With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, your IT organization can gain a consistent and repeatable method for managing encryption, access policies, and security intelligence for all structured and unstructured data. The solution offers these advantages:
- Seamless implementation. With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, securing data and unstructured files is easy. Unlike other encryption offerings, this encryption features a transparent approach, enabling security teams to implement encryption, without having to make changes to their organization’s applications, infrastructure, or business practices.
- Persistent, granular controls. Vormetric Transparent Encryption’s protection does not end after the encryption key is applied. Vormetric continues to enforce granular policies to protect against unauthorized access by users and processes, and it continues to log access. Policies can be applied by user, process, file type, time of day, and other parameters. With these capabilities, security teams can ensure continuous protection and control of their organization’s data.
- Broad environment support. The agents deploy quickly and easily and can be used in physical, virtual, cloud, and big data environments. Vormetric Transparent Encryption offers support for file systems and storage architectures and it supports a broad range of operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Linux, Oracle Solaris, IBM AIX, and HP-UX. The product can secure sensitive data in such databases as IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, NoSQL, and Sybase.
- Separation of privileged users and sensitive user data. With the Vormetric solution, administrators can create a strong separation of duties between privileged administrators and data owners. The solution encrypts files, while leaving their metadata in the clear. In this way, IT staff—including hypervisor, cloud, storage, and server administrators—can perform their system administration tasks, without being able to gain access to the sensitive data residing on the systems they manage.
With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, your organization can secure unstructured files, wherever they reside.
