The Cloud Security Alliance emphasizes the importance of shared responsibility in its latest Security Guidance v4.0. Shared responsibility means that Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs) own the responsibility to secure the infrastructure that runs their cloud services. Data owners are responsible for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their data in the cloud.
Securing data in the cloud properly requires that data owners own—and can prove that they own—their data, from inception to deletion. That means that data owners—not their cloud provider—must protect their sensitive data by deploying a cloud security ecosystem where data and cryptographic keys are secured and managed, and access is controlled.
For the highest level of data security in the cloud, users should deploy advanced BYOE tools in their cloud environments. Thales TCT offers advanced multi-cloud BYOE tools through CipherTrust Data Security Platform to secure data and rapidly reach compliance.
Compared to the native encryption solutions available from cloud providers, Thales TCT BYOE through CipherTrust Data Security Platform delivers:
