KeySecure for Government G160 (KeySecure G160) is a compact cryptographic key management platform that protects and manages cryptographic keys and associated policies used to encrypt the most sensitive data-at-rest. This cost-effective solution is ideal for small to medium sized deployments commonly found in small offices, remote sites, and tactical environments. KeySecure G160’s small form factor allows it to be easily deployed in any environment while still providing the best in class security features customers are accustomed to finding in the KeySecure for Government product family.
KeySecure G160 includes a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 token or a high assurance cryptographic token as its hardware root of trust. The token hardware security module (HSM) operates as a secure root of trust by encrypting all sensitive objects (e.g. keys, certificates, etc.) in KeySecure with keys that are generated by, and reside in, the token HSM. The removable token HSM provides an easy to use method to support common key management scenarios such as rapid key delivery disablement, key destruction, cryptographic erase, and time of use restrictions. By simply removing the detachable token you can keep mission-critical data safe, whether in the most hazardous environment or a remote branch office.
Originally developed for the tactical market segment, the G160 has evolved into a cost-effective key management solution that is well suited for many small to medium size deployments of encrypting endpoints (e.g. storage arrays, virtual machines, file servers, etc.). Regardless of the specific use case, all KeySecure G160 deployments benefit from the following characteristics of the G160 platform:

|Own and Manage Your Encryption Keys
For agency leaders and IT administrators responsible for data security—from the most basic statistics to highly sensitive documents—understanding the role of encryption and the management of encryption keys is vital to keeping confidential data just that—confidential. And, for organizations that entrust their data to cloud storage, it is essential that they understand the options available for safeguarding this protected data—even if it’s being managed in the cloud by a third-party vendor. This white paper discusses the importance of data encryption, the vulnerabilities of third-party encryption, the necessity of encryption key ownership, and how all of it affects the security of your organization’s data stored in the cloud.
|Best Practices for Cryptographic Key Management
Once data is encrypted, the only way to gain access is by decrypting or unlocking secret content using the key. Haphazardly protecting these keys negates the entire process of encryption and creates a false sense of security. This white paper outlines best practices for deploying an effective cryptographic key management strategy.
