Organizations rely on encrypting their data as a primary means of protecting it from unauthorized use. An essential part of this process involves creating and managing encryption keys in multiple places, including small- and medium-sized installations and remote locations requiring encryption for data at rest. Many customers are looking for a solution to manage these instances; however, the up-front cost of hardware key management appliances does not fit some budgets. SafeNet Virtual KeySecure is a hardened virtual security appliance that provides a more operation- and expense-friendly alternative. By using a virtual key manager instead of a hardware appliance, organizations can scale key management at remote facilities or in cloud infrastructures such as VMware and AWS Marketplace. Virtual KeySecure allows customers to manage keys, unify encryption, and enforce access control across these virtualized and cloud infrastructures.
