High-performance computing (HPC) has long expanded from research labs to commercial use. Computational modeling and simulation along with high-performance data analytics using HPC systems are prevalent in industries from the design and manufacturing of aircrafts to consumer goods, life sciences, energy, and financial services.


The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and its symbiotic relationship with HPC has augmented traditional methods for modeling and analysis. HPC plus AI is HPC workloads using AI and AI workloads using HPC. It leverages the significant technological advancements in GPUs, ML frameworks, neural network architectures, networking, and storage protocols and solutions. This confluence is merging in the enterprise data center requiring adherence to standards around management and security.

The benefit from the convergence of these technological advancements appear limitless leading to bigger, better, and faster data analytics. From mission simulations to the collection and analysis of huge volumes of intelligence data, it is paramount that the data generated and stored by HPC and the evolving enterprise is properly secured.

The inaugural edition of Thales TCT and Carahsoft's CTO Sessions webcast series taught attendees about the convergence of Enterprise HPC and security. Thales TCT & Panasas tech experts discussed:

  • Advancement in HPC plus AI
  • How storage solutions can inherently adapt and scale meeting the demands of HPC, AI, and the enterprise
  • How to apply data security best practices without compromising performance

Federal agencies require a simple way to correlate all security-relevant data so they can manage their security posture. Instead of merely watching events after they occur, agencies should anticipate their occurrence and implement measures to limit vulnerabilities in real time. For that, agencies need an analytics-driven SIEM platform such as Splunk.

However, once data is correlated by SEIM tools, it becomes extremely valuable. By integrating an encryption and key management solution such as CipherTrust Data Security Platform with Splunk, agencies can ensure that their operational intelligence is protected from surreptitious attacks.

Attendees learned how to protect Splunk indexes and provide enhanced visibility on the processes and users who are accessing protected data.

This webinar addressed topics such as:

  • Identifying anomalous process and user access patterns for investigation
  • Enabling data-at-rest encryption and privileged user access controls
  • Centralizing administration of encryption keys and data security policies
  • Collecting security intelligence logs without change to applications, databases or infrastructure

Identifying complex security and compliance threats that puts your data at risk

With advanced persistent threats (APTs), now common—hackers are actively seeking to steal credit card data, personally identifiable information (PII), critical intellectual property (IP), and other legally protected information to sell to the highest bidder. Some of the most effective tools for fighting these attacks are the security intelligence and threat detection capabilities of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions. SIEM solutions monitor both real-time events and track long-term data to find anomalous patterns of usage, qualify possible threats to reduce false positives, and alert organizations when risks are detected. The CipherTrust Manager from Thales enhances SIEM solutions by providing an additional data feed on events that are occurring on the internal network and provides rich data points about protected data-at-rest.

The challenge with leveraging log data is it comes in an array of unpredictable formats, and traditional monitoring and analysis tools were not designed for the variety, velocity, volume or variability of this data. This is where a security information and event management (SIEM) vendor like Splunk comes in. Splunk’s industry-leading collect, categorize and correlate event data coming from various devices, systems and applications throughout the enterprise. It is an enterprise ready, fully integrated solution for log management, data collection, storage, and visualization.


In this paper, we will examine how CipherTrust Transparent Encryption from Thales secures the Splunk log repositories and databases. Then, we will show how Live Data Transformation, an extension of CipherTrust Transparent Encryption, can encrypt Splunk buckets seamlessly with zero-downtime. We will close with how the CipherTrust Security Intelligence solution for Splunk extends the reach of security information and event management (SIEM) capabilities to detect and counter attacks on sensitive data.

Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) emphasize the shared responsibility model for securing data in the cloud and meeting compliance requirements for information protection. 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. Making sure that this data is safe from unauthorized access requires organizations to consider not only the physical and logical security of the CSP but also who is encrypting the data; when and where the data is being encrypted; and who is creating, managing, and accessing the encryption keys.

In this session, attendees learned how to reduce the risks associated with storing sensitive data in the cloud. The speaker will address topics such as:

  • Meeting compliance and regulatory mandates
  • Applying customer-owned encryption and key management
  • Deploying a hybrid cloud for increased security
  • Utilizing multiple cloud providers effectively

Ransomware is a vicious type of malware that cybercriminals use to block organizations and individuals from accessing their critical files, databases, or entire computer systems, until the victim pays a ransom. It is a form of cyber extortion.

This white paper helps you understand the anatomy of ransomware attacks and explores the solutions available in the market today to defend against such attacks. It illustrates how security policies in CipherTrust Transparent Encryption from Thales enable you to prevent rogue processes and unauthorized users from encrypting your most sensitive data and thereby protects you from ransomware attacks. CipherTrust Transparent Encryption is part of the CipherTrust Data Security Platform. The CipherTrust Platform unifies data discovery, classification, data protection, and provides unprecedented granular access controls, all with centralized key management. The products and solutions available on the CipherTrust Platform mitigate the business risks associated with data breaches and ransomware attacks.

Traditionally organizations have focused IT security primarily on perimeter defense, building walls to block external threats from entering the network. While this is still important, it is not enough. Cybercriminals regularly breach perimeter defenses and data frequently lives outside those defenses in the cloud elsewhere, so organizations need to apply a data-centric security strategy that protects data wherever it is. With today’s proliferation of data, evolving global and regional privacy regulations, growth of cloud adoption, and advanced persistent threats, data-centric security enables organizations to be in control of their data regardless of location while rendering it unreadable to data thieves. But, to be effective, this protection must happen automatically without relying on user intervention. This white paper outlines the challenges of data security in this age of data proliferation. It also provides strategies to discover and classify your critical data and apply data-centric security to it.
