Gemalto Expands Cloud HSM On Demand Solutions

SafeNet Data Protection On Demand cloud platform now offers HSM On
Demand to secure CyberArk Privileged Access Management, Oracle
Transparent Data Encryption, and Hyperledger Blockchain Transactions

AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, today announced the
availability of three new cloud-based Hardware Security Module (HSM)
services, HSM
On Demand for CyberArk
On Demand for Hyperledger
and HSM
On Demand for Oracle TDE
. Each service is available through the SafeNet
Data Protection on Demand
platform, a marketplace of cloud-based
HSM, encryption and key management services that easily integrates with
most widely used cloud services and IT products to protect data wherever
it is created, accessed or stored.

The rapid adoption of cloud and digital services has made it difficult
for organizations to secure data and identities that are created, stored
and managed outside the perimeter. While organizations recognize that
data encryption is the optimal solution to secure sensitive information,
they can be challenged by the cost and complexity of deploying
encryption, including Hardware Security Modules to secure their
cryptographic operations. Gemalto’s SafeNet Data Protection On Demand
solves these challenges by providing cloud-based HSM services that and
can be deployed in minutes without the need for highly skilled staff.
Gemalto, a leader in the HSM market, is proven to help customers secure
their encryption keys and data across cloud, hybrid, and on-premises

“A worsening threat landscape, combined with aggressive cloud adoption
and evolving privacy regulations, have presented complex new challenges
related to encryption, privileged access and financial transactions,”
said Todd Moore, Senior Vice President of Encryption Products at
Gemalto. “Our newest Cloud HSM On Demand services help organizations
stay in front of new threats and regulations, by easily deploying an HSM
solution for the strongest possible key management and security
practices, all while providing fast, easy set-up, with remarkable
savings over traditional approaches involving specialized hardware and

“Many organizations would like to deploy data security more broadly, but
are often wary due to concerns about complexity, cost and staffing
requirements, particularly with respect to encryption and key
management,” said Garrett Bekker, Principal Analyst at 451 Research.
“The release of SafeNet Data Protection On Demand was a positive step
towards addressing those concerns, and extending its cloud HSM
capability to newer use cases like blockchain, database security and
privileged credentials is a logical and timely move.”

HSM On Demand for CyberArk
On Demand for CyberArk
works seamlessly with CyberArk’s Privileged
Access Security Solution, providing private key protection and strong
entropy for key generation for system keys.. By securing the master key
and ensuring that it is hosted in a secure vault, HSM On Demand for
CyberArk mitigates the risk of the master key being exposed or

HSM On Demand for Hyperledger
On Demand for Hyperledger
provides trust for blockchain transactions
by securing the cryptographic keys that sign them. It protects digital
wallets, while ensuring keys are readily available in the cloud once
access is granted. The service provides high assurance security in data
centers and the cloud, enabling multi-tenancy of blockchain identities
per partition as proof of transaction and for auditing requirements. It
also delivers performance improvements resulting from off-loading
cryptographic operations from application servers to the HSM on Demand

HSM On Demand for Oracle TDE
for Oracle TDE
(Transparent Data Encryption) solves the challenge
presented by locally stored encryption keys by protecting them with a
master key, stored in a separate service key vault. This ensures that
only authorized services are allowed to request the local key to be
decrypted. If an attacker steals the database, it is encrypted and
inaccessible, since the attacker does not have access to the keys that
are securely stored on the HSM.
