Thales and SAP team up to secure data in the public cloud
Thales’ CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager Now Supports SAP’s Data Custodian
Thales has announced a new solution aimed at protecting sensitive data of SAP customers in public cloud environments.
The new cloud data protection solution integrates with SAP Data Custodian to help organizations manage and secure SAP data in public cloud environments.
The joint solution also enables security teams to centrally manage encryption keys in public clouds while meeting compliance and regulatory requirements.
“The SAP Data Custodian was created to give our customers confidence that their data is safe when using a public cloud,” said Dr. Wasif Gilani, Vice President and Head of SAP Data Custodian.
“The introduction of Thales’s remote key management service demonstrates our commitment to that mission, as Thales’ unparalleled key management solutions will enable our customers to use the high-quality keys they know and trust when working with Data Custodian.”
Essentially, SAP customers can now leverage Thales’ CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager. The solution is making way for external key management services for SAP Data Custodian.
In particular, Thales’ CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager offers support for native cloud keys in addition to Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) and Hold Your Own Key (HYOK).
“Key cybersecurity leaders know that remote key management solutions are essential to protecting valuable data in the cloud,” said Todd Moore, senior vice president of encryption products at Thales.
“The integration of Thales’ CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager and the SAP Data Custodian will make it easier for users to manage their multi-cloud encryption keys on leading cloud platforms. We will continue to work with companies such as SAP to develop the data security solutions needed to meet the needs of our customers around the world.”
