Thales TCT CipherTrust Data Security Platform
CipherTrust Data Security Platform removes complexity from data security, accelerates time to compliance, and secures cloud migrations. It unifies data discovery, classification, data protection, and unprecedented granular access controls with centralized key management—all on a single platform. This results in fewer resources dedicated to data security operations, ubiquitous compliance controls, and significantly reduced risk.
CipherTrust Manager, central management point for CipherTrust Data Security Platform, enables organizations to centrally manage and store cryptographic keys and policies associated with encrypted data stored in Dell environments. CipherTrust Manager manages key lifecycle tasks including generation, rotation, destruction, import and export, provides role-based access control to keys and policies, supports robust auditing and reporting. CipherTrust Manager is available in both virtual and physical form-factors that integrate with FIPS 140 validated Thales TCT Luna T-Series Hardware Security Module (HSM) for securely storing master keys with highest root of trust.
CipherTrust Manager can integrate with a wide-range of Dell platforms:
Using the industry standard Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), Dell integrates with Thales TCT CipherTrust Enterprise Key Management (EKM) to mitigate the threat of unauthorized access to encrypted data.
Thales TCT CipherTrust EKM provides external key management and data encryption for multiple product lines from Dell and 3rd party platforms, enabling you to satisfy compliance mandates and keeps your sensitive data secure, even in the event of a breach. By storing keys away from encrypted devices and the data residing in storage arrays, file-systems, databases or applications, Thales TCT CipherTrust EKM ensures that encrypted information is protected from unauthorized access.
The foundation for Thales TCT Enterprise Key Management solutions: CipherTrust Manager
CipherTrust Manager is a high-availability appliance that centralizes encryption key management for Thales Data Security Products and third-party encryption solutions. The appliance manages key lifecycle tasks including generation, rotation, destruction, import and export.
CipherTrust Manager additionally enhances key management by providing convenient back-up services and delivering strong separation of duties for increased security. CipherTrust Manager can be separated into logical entities, or domains, dedicated to unique key management environments, providing additional security and ultimate separation of duties, where no single administrator has access to all domains.
CipherTrust Manager is available as either a hardware or a virtual appliance. CipherTrust k570 enterprise-level hardware appliance is equipped with a FIPS 140 Level 3 & CNSS approved Luna T-Series HSM. CipherTrust k160 small form factor appliance include a removable FIPS 140 or high assurance token HSM. Virtual CipherTrust Manager is FIPS 140 Level 1 approved and can integrate with 3rd party HSMs including FIPS 140 Level 3 & CNSS approved Luna T-Series HSM.
Cyberattacks are designed to destroy, steal or otherwise compromise your valuable data. Protecting your critical data is key and encryption is fundamental to any defense-in-depth strategy whether the goal is compliance or securing sensitive data. Dell PowerProtect Cyber Recovery provides proven, modern and intelligent protection and integrates seamlessly with Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies (TCT) CipherTrust Manager to mitigate the threat of unauthorized access to encrypted data.
Together, Dell and Thales TCT offer a secure and efficient means of protecting data with encryption, and help customers meet data security compliance mandates such as FIPS 140, PCIDSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. Thales TCT CipherTrust Data Security Platform provides external key management and data encryption for multiple product lines from Dell technologies and 3rd party platforms, enabling you to satisfy compliance mandates and keeps your sensitive data secure, even in the event of a breach.
By storing keys away from encrypted devices and the data residing in storage arrays, file-systems, databases or applications, Thales TCT CipherTrust Data Security Platform ensures that encrypted information is protected from unauthorized access and that a single console can manage all security policies for all encrypted data.
Dell PowerEdge servers integrate with Thales TCT CipherTrust Manager to mitigate the threat of unauthorized access to encrypted data residing on SED or SDD/HDD drives (see image below). This capability, called Secure Enterprise Key Manager SEKM, is enabled in PowerEdge servers through integrated code in the baseboard management controller(BMC), and complies with the KMIP security standard. Working with Thales TCT, Dell PowerEdge servers now offers an integrated, cyber-resilient, design that helps protect customer data-at-rest, within the data center. CipherTrust Manager provides security by storing and managing keys away from the data and the encrypted device, providing strong data security even if the server is compromised or stolen. The solution can be configured to hold the private keys offshore, preventing domestic authorities from seizing these keys and accessing critical private data.
Offered as part of Dell OpenManage Secure Enterprise Key Manager, Thales CipherTrust Manager simplifies and centralizes encryption key policies and management, and helps meet global compliance, security, and privacy standards. Dell OpenManage Secure Enterprise Key Manager components include optional connector node licenses that can be purchase at the point of sale (POS), allowing the customer to connect to Thales TCT CipherTrust Manager straight out of the box.
