Database Reliability and Performance
Enterprises have often suffered from performance issues when implementing poorly designed or inefficient database encryption tools, impacting end users and applications that rely on real-time access to data.
Insufficient Security Controls
Database encryption tools built with inadequate database encryption security expose the organization to fraud and data breaches. For example, when key management is handled within the database, the DBA has control of both the data and key. Database encryption solutions also often disregard insider abuse and advanced persistent threats, allowing an attacker the time needed to find and expose vulnerabilities.
Complex and Time Consuming Key Management
As the database environment expands, so do the key management challenges. Using multiple key management tools is complex and creates more opportunities for errors and fraud. While database vendors offer key management functionality, this only works when the enterprise uses that vendor's specific databases.
Vormetric Transparent Encryption
Vormetric Transparent Encryption offers the capabilities you need to employ strong database encryption, with minimal effort and performance implications. With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, you can secure sensitive data in databases across your enterprise, whether you’re running Oracle, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Sybase, NoSQL environments, or any combination thereof.
Vormetric Application Encryption
For organizations that need to apply more granular encryption, including at the column or field level within databases, Thales offers Vormetric Application Encryption. Vormetric Application Encryption simplifies the integration of encryption into existing corporate applications and features standard-based APIs, which are used to perform cryptographic and key management operations. Users can choose between standards-based AES encryption and scheme maintaining format preserving encryption (FPE).
Database Protection Without Noticeable Performance Impact
Thales database encryption solutions are highly scalable and offer protection of your database environment without compromising performance. Our database encryption has been field-tested in the most performance-intensive environments, with proven scalability to support 50,000 cryptographic transactions per second.
Thales enables database encryption without having to make changes to your applications, infrastructure, or business practices, and makes it simple to extend application-layer encryption across virtual, cloud, big data and traditional environments.
Improved Compliance Posture
The security intelligence built into Vormetric Transparent Encryption provides vital insights needed to track and demonstrate compliance with mandates such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, GLBA, SOX and others.
