Integrated Solution Strengthens Security and Streamlines Administration
BALTIMORE—February 28, 2012 - SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in data protection, and ServiceMesh, provider of the market leading enterprise cloud platform, today announced that SafeNet’s KeySecure™ Enterprise Key Management (EKM) solution has been integrated within ServiceMesh’s Agility Platform. The integrated solution enables customers to manage, govern and deploy data and applications securely to private and public clouds while streamlining cryptographic key security and administration for greater cost savings and efficiency.
“Cloud environments are highly dynamic, with workloads shifting across physical infrastructures and even service provider environments,” said Tsion Gonen, chief strategy officer at SafeNet. “To safeguard sensitive assets in the cloud, organizations need to establish security boundaries that are both consistent and dynamic. With the integrated solution of KeySecure and the Agility Platform, enterprise customers can centrally, efficiently, and consistently enforce security policies without compromising the agility of cloud applications and workloads.”
KeySecure is an “integration ready” solution that is compliant with the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standard. With its support for the KMIP standard, KeySecure is designed for ease of integration with any encryption solution that requires robust key management. KeySecure can manage keys for storage and archive encryption platforms (NAS & SAN), mixed applications, hardware security modules (HSMs), and cloud encryption deployments.
“With the Agility Platform, customers can achieve breakthroughs in the flexibility, responsiveness, and affordability of their IT operating model,” said Frank Martinez, CTO at ServiceMesh. “Core to delivering these benefits is the requirement to secure an organization’s sensitive assets across networks, data, users, and machine instances. We’re pleased to leverage enterprise-grade solutions like KeySecure for securing and administering cryptographic keys, which is integral to the overall security solution we provide to our enterprise clients.”
The Agility Platform offers global enterprises a way to move to a more agile IT operating model, enabling customers to automatically provision and manage cloud applications and services independent of underlying infrastructure, while maintaining compliance and governance through flexible policy definition and enforcement. The Agility Platform provides business units with governed, secure access to standardized IT services, and accelerates the lifecycle and delivery of those services across federated hybrid cloud architectures, including internal and external, private, and public clouds.
