Join Equinix at F5 Agility – August 15th & 16th

Organizations are increasingly migrating applications and workloads to public clouds to achieve greater exibility and improved economic efficiency. As they do so, they need to ensure that they are still able to deliver required levels of performance, availability, security and compliance. Together Equinix and F5 enable you to move your apps to the cloud with con dence in the most secure manner possible.

Improve Cloud Security Management with a Cloud-Based HSM

When we talk to companies around the world, a common topic of discussion is the transformational nature of cloud technologies. In a very short time, the cloud has disrupted every aspect of how IT infrastructure, resources and software are deployed and managed. While there’s near-universal agreement on the economic benefits of this, it’s not all good news: In these discussions, the conversation invariably turns toward the growing challenges of cloud security management - in particular, the management of the encryption keys that are fundamental to cloud security.

Hardware Security Module (HSM) vs. Key Management Service (KMS)

The cloud strategy you adopt—private, hybrid, public or multicloud—is a key factor in the decision as to which encryption key management strategy will work best for your enterprise. For best results, your key strategy should fit your long-term cloud strategy and should be applied consistently across your enterprise.

Microsoft Teams up with Equinix for Greater Cloud Data Security

Enterprises should consider a vendor-neutral HSM-as-a-Service that provides the protection and a service level agreement (SLA) to effectively support the “shared-responsibility” model between cloud providers and their customers.

Increase PII Security in the Cloud through Secure Key Generation & Management

Stored and accessible PII, which is broadly defined as any information that could be used to identify an individual, facilitates these transactions for all consumers. However, near-weekly reports of significant data breaches have raised concerns about the ability of retailers and other organizations to keep consumer records secure.

Can a KMS Minimize the Chance of a Data Protection Breach?

Guarding against data breaches becomes even more challenging as organizations move data and applications from the security of their on-premise IT infrastructure to the cloud, where the responsibility for protecting data is shared with the cloud provider. Because encryption keys play a vital role in this scenario by shielding data from potential breaches, the approach to encryption key management requires careful evaluation.

Should You Use a Key Management Service with Multicloud Environments?

As you transition from on-premise computing to cloud computing, securing your data in the cloud is paramount. Since encryption is a preferred way to secure data, encryption key management is a critical concern. Cloud providers have responded to this need with two options: a hardware security module (HSM) or a key management service (KMS). Each approach features benefits and drawbacks.
