Today, perimeter-based security defenses cannot adequately secure the growing volume of sensitive data residing on servers in physical, virtualized, and public cloud storage environments. To be completely protected, organizations must employ a solution that attaches security to the data itself.
SafeNet ProtectFile provides transparent and automated file system-level encryption of server data at rest in the distributed enterprise. This includes data-centric protection of Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Storage Area Network (SAN), and Network Attached Storage (NAS) servers using CIFS/NFS file sharing protocols.
SafeNet ProtectFile also features granular access controls, centralized policy and key management, and comprehensive auditing capabilities. Once deployed, files containing sensitive data are rendered useless in the event of a breach, misuse or hijacking of privileged accounts, physical theft of servers, and other potential threats.
Secure Sensitive Server Data at Rest in the Distributed Enterprise
SafeNet ProtectFile is deployed in tandem with KeySecure for Government, a FIPS 140-2 up to Level 3 enterprise key manager, for centralized key and policy management across multiple sites. The solution encrypts sensitive data on servers, such as credit card numbers, personal information, logs, passwords, and more in a broad range of files, including word processing documents, images, database files, archives, and backups.
Once deployed and initiated on a server, SafeNet ProtectFile transparently encrypts and decrypts data in local and mapped network folders at the file-system level based on policies – without disruption to business operations, application performance, or end-user experience.
