Thales aims to simplify multi-cloud security

By

Security vendor Thales has announced new data protection products for Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services.

With its latest announcements, Thales aims to help customers maintain control of and manage their encryption keys, and manage access and authentication across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

CipherTrust Transparent Encryption provides encryption and access controls to protect data stored in AWS S3. It also encrypts Kubernetes secrets and Google Anthos Service Mesh signing keys.

Thales Data Discovery and Classification automates the discovery, classification and protection of data in the cloud and on-premises, and now supports AWS S3 buckets and Azure blob storage.

CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager now works with Google Cloud’s External Key Manager.

SafeNet Trusted Access provides integration with Google Workspace, Azure and AWS to enforce access controls and authentication. New features include authentication and authorisation for APIs and for applications not using industry-standard protocols such as SAML and OIDC.

“The proliferation of multi-cloud computing has created new organisational challenges in managing data across many different cloud environments. Whilst organisations have benefited from scalability and speed to market thanks to the power of cloud, the ever expanding IT cloud landscape has added greater complexity to data management and security,” said Thales senior vice president of cloud protection and licensing activities Sébastien Cano.

'“In a post pandemic, highly regulated world, it is even more important for organisations to understand what data they have, where it sits, who can access it and the risks associated with managing it. Only once an organisation understands all of these data lifecycle aspects, can they ensure that it is secured and managed correctly.”

Google Cloud Security vice president and general manager Sunil Potti said “These capabilities are critical to cloud migration and security, especially with such accelerated growth in this area. True to our mission, we have forged this collaboration with Thales to further protect our customer’s most sensitive information.

"We are empowering customers to leverage the full potential of Google Cloud technology for sensitive workloads, by utilising the Customer-Managed Encryption Key-integrated GCP services, CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager and SafeNet Trusted Access for access management and authentication from Thales. This will enable enterprises to deal with a fluid and dynamic business environment where protecting sensitive data in the cloud is of extreme importance.”
