Tackle Six Security Issues Before Encrypting Data in the Cloud
Published: 9 March, 2013
For clients moving workloads into the cloud:
"Use cloud encryption to protect sensitive data for three scenarios: (1) data residency issues, (2) to provide exemption from data breach notification requirements and (3) to "digitally shred" sensitive cloud data at its end of life by deleting the encryption keys." wrote Brian Lowans Principal Research Analyst, Gartner, Incorporated et al. "Enterprises should only use solutions that allow them to manage their own keys when handling sensitive data. If keys are managed or available in the cloud, enterprises should require, as a minimum, the specification of their geographic location, and audited user and administrator access controls and segregation of duties."
Pete Nicoletti, Chief Information Security Officer, Virtustream, Inc.
"It can be challenging to get large enterprises to trust the cloud, so this partnership with Vormetric provides a significant security measure required to overcome that concern," said Pete Nicoletti, Chief Information Security Officer at Virtustream. "With Vormetric's solution, we now have an encryption and data access control option suitable for customers that are required to encrypt and control access to data to protect their critical IP "Crown Jewels" and PII as well as address compliance frameworks such as HIPAA. Adding this capability gives our enterprise clients absolute confidence when moving mission-critical data to the cloud as we encrypt data before the move, in production and in archive."
Randall Poole, Vice President Product Development, QTS Realty Trust, Inc.
