Organizations are increasingly vulnerable to data breaches. SmartKey provides secure encryption key management to protect cloud data.
Every organization strives to keep data secure. However, in light of the frequency of successful cyberattacks and the often less-than-forthright acknowledgment of such attacks by major organizations, governments have stepped in to implement data processing and privacy regulations which impose severe penalties for violations
Residing on disks, in computer memory or transferred by wire or wireless, data increasingly drives global economies. Try going a day without internet access. How isolated do you feel when you’re out of cell-tower range? Your day is driven by data, and the value of data is defined by its context and usage.
Encryption has been the primary mechanism to protect data since public key encryption was invented in 1976. Encryption does not allow data to be “seen,” and generally applies to three data states: “in transit” data moving between different places, “at rest” data on disk and “in memory” data currently being processed on a system.
To remedy this embarrassment and bring a greater degree of security, the payment card industry as well as real-time payment platforms are moving to tokenization—a process by which a surrogate value in the form of a series of randomly-generated numbers, known as a “token,” replaces the primary account number.
Securing the Unsecurable in Interconnected Digital Technology: Part I – Interconnection Oriented Architecture
Advances in the use of digital technology have improved customer experiences in most industries. Look around—there isn’t a day that we’re not benefitting, as individuals and as a society, from recent advances in digital technology, whether by using an innovative application or by discovering a disruptive digital service capable of transforming some aspect of our daily routine.
Today, developers take advantage of thousands of productivity-enhancing tools and resources and collaborate in real-time with colleagues worldwide to deliver and support software applications and solutions that improve individual lives as well as corporate performance.
Together, Equinix and F5 Networks have delivered flexible, programmable technologies that create new hybrid IT environments without compromising on security or control. At the F5 Agility 2018 event in Boston, Equinix and F5 are promoting a new collaboration to deliver encryption key management as a service for hybrid/multicloud environments via the F5 BIG-IP as a Cloud Gateway and Equinix SmartKey™ key management solution by the end of this year.
Based on our experience in working with thousands of customers who’ve moved data and applications to the cloud, we’ve identified three critical pain points that impede an enterprise’s ability to effectively and efficiently manage encryption keys in the cloud.
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.
