CipherTrust Protection for Teradata

Teradata leverages all of the data, all of the time, so you can analyze anything, deploy anywhere, and deliver analytics that matter. But the aggregation of data can also present risks. Thales enables your organization to guard against such security risks. CipherTrust Protection for Teradata makes it fast and efficient to employ robust data-at-rest security capabilities in your Teradata environments, on premises, in the cloud, or anywhere in between.


Secure your Teradata databases and big data environments

  • Centrally manage encryption across your Teradata environments—including the Teradata database and Teradata Appliance for Hadoop
  • Enforce granular controls to enable administrators to perform operational tasks, without accessing sensitive data in the clear
  • Centrally manage encryption keys and policies
  • Boost security without compromising the value of big data analytics
  • Establish protections against cyberattacks and abuse by privileged users
  • Reduce costs and administrative overhead relative to other data protection solutions for Teradata

Strengthened security with minimized disruption and costs

CipherTrust Protection for Teradata Database simplifies the process of securing sensitive records, enabling encryption of specific fields and columns in Teradata databases. The solution also offers NIST-approved format-preserving encryption (FPE) capabilities, so you can encrypt sensitive records without altering their format or field schemas. Not only does this minimize the potential impact of encryption on associated applications and workflows, but it helps you avoid the increased storage requirements associated with conventional encryption approaches.

  • High-performance encryption solution for Teradata database
  • Protects against data breaches
  • Protects all data within Teradata environment
  • Complies with data security mandates
  • Boost security without compromising the value of big data analytics
  • Simplifies data security administration

Thales and Teradata secure sensitive data warehouses
CipherTrust Transparent Encryption for Teradata Database simplifies the process of securing sensitive records, with file system-level encryption backed by centralized key management, privileged user access controls and detailed data access audit logging. CipherTrust Transparent Encryption for Teradata makes it fast and efficient to employ robust data-at-rest encryption in Teradata environments, on premises, or in the cloud. The solution offers block-level encryption in Teradata databases. With CipherTrust Transparent Encryption for Teradata your organization can gain the comprehensive, granular controls required to secure the most sensitive assets while harnessing the high performance that is required to support processing intensive big data workloads. CipherTrust Transparent Encryption deployment is simple, scalable and fast, with agents installed at the operating file-system or device layer. Encryption and decryption is transparent to the database and all applications that run above it. CipherTrust Transparent Encryption addresses data security compliance and best practice requirements with minimal disruption, effort, and cost. CipherTrust Transparent Encryption’s implementation is seamless and keeps both business and operational processes working without changes even during deployment and roll out. Working in conjunction with the FIPS 140-2 up to Level 3 validated CipherTrust Manager which centralizes encryption key and policy management for the CipherTrust Data Security Platform.
