Thales today announced the latest innovations of CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager that help organizations address digital sovereignty requirements across major public clouds including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, SAP and Salesforce.
Organisations that leverage these cloud providers can now leverage CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager’s Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) capabilities for enhanced data security and encryption key ownership.
According to the 2022 Thales Cloud Security Study, multi-cloud adoption is accelerating, with 72% of all organisations surveyed using multiple cloud service providers. In addition, 52% of respondents in the study said that they manage the keys to their cloud encrypted data in the cloud provider console.
With BYOK functionality, customers can centralise key management across all clouds with external key management services ensuring full encryption capabilities and key lifecycle management to maintain control of sensitive data across multiple public clouds.
CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager, the industry-leading multi-cloud encryption key lifecycle management solution, enables customers to migrate to the cloud and manage both native cloud keys as well as Bring Your Own Keys (BYOK). The Thales service supports growing preference among enterprises to maintain and control their own keys outside of the cloud where their sensitive data is stored, achieve regulatory compliance, and unlock the full potential of their multi-cloud environment.
Todd Moore, VP, Encryption Products at Thales, said: “Businesses across every industry are moving to the cloud and migrating their sensitive information in the process. While this presents significant benefits, IT professionals also have to contend with this shift’s newfound security implications. We help customers address critical challenges in data governance, risk, and compliance across hybrid and multi-cloud environments while responding to the growing preference among enterprises to centralise, maintain and control their high-quality keys for use in the cloud.”
