HP announced new encryption capabilities for data at rest, in motion or in use—across cloud, on-premises and mobile environments. The new HP Atalla solutions deliver advanced protection for data stored on-premises and in the cloud, as well as unstructured data such as confidential emails, payment information and electronic health records. Some highlights of the announcement:
- HP Secure Encryption with HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager (ESKM) 4.0 unifies and automates encryption controls across a distributed infrastructure. It secures and manages encryption keys without slowing server performance and also fully supports the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), bringing open standards to encryption key management.
- HP Atalla Cloud Encryption reduces the complexity of encryption and key management in public, private and hybrid cloud environments with split-key encryption, a method for combining and splitting keys during the encryption process. In addition, customers can leverage integration with HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager to automatically manage and protect master keys on-premises in FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated security appliances.
- HP Atalla Information Protection and Control (IPC) software protects sensitive enterprise data at every stage of the data life cycle—from creation to collaboration to storage. The software uses an information-centric encryption approach that applies persistent protection to follow the data throughout its life cycle, no matter where it resides. The encryption technology is easily incorporated into business processes without adding complexity or time consuming and costly integration.
