Protect Sensitive Data with Enterprise Encryption Solutions

Your corporate data assets are being stored, processed, and shared more than ever before. To meet business-critical demands, such as migrating to the cloud or enabling big data analysis, your colleagues will need access to this high-value information. However, it's important to put the proper security and controls in place to ensure sensitive data, including personally identifiable information, company financials, and intellectual property, remains on lock down – especially in the event of a malicious attack or data breach. We call this unsharing your data and it can be done in today’s shared environments. Follow the steps below to learn how to use encryption to unshare your data and keep it protected whereever it resides.

Locate Sensitive Data

Sensitive data is everywhere. Take inventory of where high-value data is located at every layer of your enterprise data stack, and as it travels across your network and between data centers.

- See more at:

You'll need to prioritize your most sensitive assets and repositories to evaluate the best strategy for protecting your data at rest and data in motion.

Data at Rest

Start by identifying where your most sensitive data assets reside in your on-premises data center and then move to your extended data center, which includes cloud and virtual infrastructure. Search your files, folders, network storage, application and web servers, as well as your databases for high-value data. Whether structured or unstructured, data residing in any of these environments can be encrypted.

Data in Motion

Don't overlook the traffic flowing across your network and between data centers that should also be encrypted. Once this data leaves the confines of your organization, you no longer have control over it. Cyber criminals are standing by to easily and cheaply "tap" your fiber optic cables. Not only can they hack into unencrypted data as it streams across the network in tens of gigabits per second, but they can even inject controls to override your systems completely. Aside from malicious attempts, human error can result in data being transmitted to wrong locations, especially in multi-tenant environments.

Encrypt It

In today's landscape, breaches are inevitable and perimeter security is no longer an adequate solution. Once you have located sensitive data, you need to apply security to the data itself.

- See more at:
Encryption enables you to apply protection directly to the data. Even if the perimeter is breached, you can be sure that your information remains secure - wherever it resides. Your data protection solution should be capable of encrypting data at scale across your data center and extended data center, and in a centralized way that does not disrupt the flow of business. This enables you to address your immediate data protection needs, while investing in a solution that provides the robust security, growing ecosystem, and flexibility necessary to build a trusted framework for the future. Gemalto offers a full suite of products that enable you to encrypt sensitive data at rest in files and folders, network attached storage, web and application servers, and databases in on-premises, virtual, public cloud, and hybrid environments. To protect data as it moves across your network, between data centers to disaster recovery sites and into the cloud, Gemalto offers high speed encryptors (HSEs) that encrypt your data in motion. - See more at:
Manage Encryption Keys

Strong key management is a critical component of any data protection strategy. Manage and store your keys centrally, yet separate from the data, to maintain ownership and control.

- See more at:
Remember, encryption is only as strong as its key management counter-part. The volume and variety of data that needs to be encrypted across your enterprise could potentially require millions of encryption keys. With isolated, disconnected key management, it becomes nearly impossible for you to adequately protect the keys as they are stored in a variety of places - even on the same systems that contain your encrypted data. This leaves them vulnerable to theft and misuse. Working together with our extensive encryption portfolio, Gemalto provides the most secure enterprise key management solutions available on the market. These solutions provide a centralized platform to manage and perform all key-related tasks, while adhering to the industry's most stringent certification requirements, such as hardware-based key management. Gemalto's SafeNet KeySecure is the industry's leading platform for the centralized management and security of encryption keys. It supports a broad ecosystem of both Gemalto and third-party products to protect sensitive data in databases, file servers, network attached storage, and applications across on-premises, virtual, public cloud, and hybrid environments. To further strengthen security, you can also consider safeguarding the key storage container. Software key wrappers do not protect the encryption keys as well as hardware-based options; therefore vaulting your keys in a hardware security module (HSM) will give you an added layer of protection. - See more at:

Crypto Management: An Introduction to Data and Key Security

A Crypto Foundation is a centralized approach taken to secure different types of data in multiple environments, combined with the management and maintenance of keys and crypto resources. In order to provide the consolidation, protection and flexibility that today's business environment demands, a data protection strategy should incorporate four key areas. The concentration levels of each area will depend on existing infrastructure, compliance mandates, and the four V's: Value, Volume, Variety and Velocity.

- See more at:

Crypto Processing and Acceleration Identify sensitive data and determine the level of encryption required. Consider all of the various threats that apply to data at different points within the lifecycle and ensure crypto operations have appropriate offloading and acceleration to avoid processing bottlenecks. - See more at:

Make sure that cipher/algorithms are comparable with current industry standards and widely used, as the classification of ‘strong’ cryptographic algorithms can change over time. Next, establish key lengths with the right combination of protection and flexibility. SafeNet’s suite of encryption solutions enables you to protect and control sensitive data as it expands in volume, type and location, from the data center to virtual environments and the cloud.

Look at current workflows and applications. Where will encryption and decryption take place? Depending on where you want encryption to run, and the velocity, you may need to consider incorporating high-speed cryptographic processors. SafeNet can provide a variety of solutions for offloading cryptographic processes from application servers to dedicated hardware.

- See more at:

Key Storage The requirements of your use case(s) and environment will determine the keys’ roles and ultimately how they are stored and protected. Organizations have the option of storing their keys within hardware or software. - See more at:

For keys that are trusted to protect highly sensitive data and applications, a centralized, hardware-based approach to key storage is recommended. Nothing ever enters or leaves the tamper-resistant vault so keys are more isolated from traditional network attacks and should the hardware security module (HSM) become compromised, the keys will zero out. All SafeNet HSMs have been through stringent third-party testing against publically documented standards.

Some use cases will require cryptographic keys to exist within close proximity to the data and applications they secure. Organizations trying to encrypt mass amounts of smaller segments of data, requiring high availability and usage may gravitate toward a distributed key storage model. This model accommodates for unlimited transactions and large amounts of keys. SafeNet KeySecure together with the Crypto Operations Pack encrypts structured or unstructured sensitive data, and provides access to leading key management interoperability protocol (KMIP) supporting appliances – all in one centralized platform.

Key Lifecycle Management There must be an integrated approach around generating, storing, distributing, rotating, revoking, suspending and terminating keys for devices and applications. A centralized management platform will perform all key-related tasks and tie back to other systems o

An organization warranting high volume, velocity and variety of keys, might consider investing in a system that specializes exclusively on key management duties.

  • Generation - Ensure the key strength matches the sensitivity of the data. The length of the key, algorithm used, and the randomness of the key material are the main factors to consider in this area.
  • Distribution - A key must be associated with a particular user, system, application or policy. The association will determine the requirements to secure the key, and the method used to secure it while in transit. The ability to differentiate access between the administrator creating the key and the person using it is vital.
  • Storing - Organizations have the option of storing their keys within hardware or software.
  • Rotation - Each key should be designated a lifespan with the ability to change that key on demand. Limit the amount of data encrypted with a single key because using the same key over a long duration of time increases the chances of a compromise.
  • Revocation - Every organization needs the ability to revoke, destroy or take keys offline. Backup copies of cryptographic keys should be kept in a storage mechanism that is at least as secure as the original store.

SafeNet KeySecure is available as a hardware appliance or hardened virtual security appliance.

Crypto Resource Management In order to ensure consistent policy enforcement, provide transparency, and maintain the health of your system, every organization should have one, easy-to-use interface to configure policies, monitor and report and provision all cryptographic resources. - See more at:

With SafeNet Crypto Command Center, security administrators can create a centralized pool of high assurance cryptographic resources that can be provisioned out to the people and lines of business in their organization that need them.

Consistency policy enforcement requires the ability to provision and de-provision cryptographic resources, automate client provisioning, and create multi-tenant, tiered security administrator access levels.

First, determine how many keys can be generated, and where they are stored. Continue to update variables in the system, such as back-up networks and users. Next, establish a policy for key usage, defining application and device access levels and to what extent they can perform.

Lastly, secure, automated and unified logging and reporting are absolutely crucial to maintain requisite risk and compliance posture. Key ownership must also be clearly defined, and all modifications recorded and securely stored in order to provide an authentic and trusted audit trail of key state changes.
