Protect your sensitive data better

Organizations worldwide process large amounts of business-critical, confidential, and sensitive data every day. The information is managed and stored in databases like online cloud services or connected servers. A database must be secured and encrypted to remain confidential and prevent unauthorized parties' access.

Challenges

Ineffective encryption key management
The most challenging part of integrating a database encryption strategy is managing the encryption keys. The old approach to key management is to use so-called "key managers" whose only job is to manage and update the keys manually. However, for organizations with millions of keys to operate, this is inefficient and can lead to encryption problems, such as a human error in updating system certificates or the loss of key material.

 

Limitations when integrating in existing environments

Flexibility is crucial these days, especially when integrating data encryption solutions into existing environments. Often, key management tools do not corporate with every database provider. For example, one is limited to providers such as Oracle, Teradata, or Microsoft. Companies have to make compromises, are inflexible in their use of databases, and compatibility takes precedence over security.

 
 

Solution: Secure key management

Centrally managed

Encrypting your database and storing the keys on an HSM is the best way to protect your data. Even if the database is stolen, the thieves will not be able to access the data because the encryption keys cannot be taken from the HSM. Moreover, it enables you to provide comprehensive Data Protection in areas such as Crypto Platforms. Encryption keys can be easily managed centrally, enabling encryption, tokenization or pseudonymization, spoofing, masking anonymization and sovereignty for files, structured data, unstructured data, data in the cloud (multi-cloud) and data in the blockchain.

Flexibel & policy-driven

The Securosys database encryption solution is policy-driven (SW and HSM level) which means Securosys HSMs are certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL 4+. The Key Vault is also certified to Common Criteria EAL 5+, so you can store millions of keys without worrying about regulatory compliance. In addition, Data Privacy Manager solutions integrate seamlessly with Securosys HSM to ensure highly secure continuous link operations.

highest Security Coverage

Highest data access security is only achieved through a combination of a secure data encryption solution combined with continuously linked HSM for key generation and key protection. Only a separation of those duties (SW/HW) gives the highest protection level. Still easy to handle. In combination with Securosys 365 Double Key Encryption solution data privacy can even be secured on company external cloud storage offerings like Azure or AWS.

Dataprotection regulations

Securosys Dataprotection Solution fully matches the requirements of data protection laws like the European GDPR requirements or similar laws in Brazil (LGPD), the Canadian Digital Charter Implementation Act, Chile (Ley 19’628), Egypt (Law No. 151), India (PDPB), Japan (PPI Act), South Korean PIPA, Thai PDPA or Swiss DSG. Additionally, data protection laws in California, Israel and many other countries are supported as well.

Best practice Guide by experts

When it comes to database encryption, there are a few things you should keep in mind Securosys tells you which ones:

  • Expert Data Protection Policies protects any kind of data which is made unreadable for unauthorized people
  • Database Encryption does not prevent unauthorized people from taking encrypted data but the data is unreadable hence worthless
  • Firewalls, Antivirus/Malware Protection Software, Access Control, Network Monitoring, General Security Policies and Physical Security do not ultimately prevent from data theft. Only encryption guarantees data privacy
  • Encryption is the last line of defense when other measures fail (why should then one wait). Encryption also removes the regulator compliance financial risk of a breach
  • Encryption maintains data confidentiality before, during and after ransomware attack and is in many cases mandatory to meet regulatory compliance standards
  • Only encryption provides data sovereignty
Supported databases

Securosys database encryption solution supports any database and allows easy integration. There are no limitations, and the flexibility remains 100%.

  • Central management for any database type
  • No coding/touching of the database
