  • Overview

    Your organization’s most valuable data assets reside in databases and it is imperative to protect them from the devastating and lasting impact of a breach. With internal and external threats growing, encryption provides a critical last line of defense by applying protection directly to sensitive information residing in databases across today’s distributed organization.

    Secure Sensitive Column-level Data-at-Rest

    SafeNet ProtectDB provides transparent column-level encryption of structured, sensitive data residing in databases, such as credit card, social security, account and national ID numbers, passwords, and email addresses.

    The solution enables large amounts of sensitive data to be moved in and out of data stores by efficiently encrypting and decrypting specific fields in databases. No changes are required to applications, and SafeNet ProtectDB can scale to support multiple data centers in on-premises, virtual, and public cloud environments. The solution is deployed with KeySecure for Government, a FIPS 140-2 up to Level 3 validated enterprise key manager, that provides centralized key and policy management.
