HP to Acquire Voltage Security for Cloud Data Encryption

HP agreed to acquire Voltage Security, a provider of data-centric encryption, tokenization and key management solutions.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

Voltage Security holds core patents for Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) and Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE). Voltage uses these to enable end-to-end protection of payments systems, from card swipe to back-end tokenization, serving six of the largest payment processors in the U.S. today. Voltage’s solutions allow enterprises to use protected data in applications without having to re-architect their applications or adopt fragmented frameworks. This capability extends from the data center to cloud and Hadoop environments, all under a single framework. Voltage Security is based in Cupertino, California.

HP said Voltage’s proven data-centric encryption and tokenization technology will complement its own HP Atalla information security and encryption business. The company notes that the HP Atalla business currently protects 70% of U.S. payment card transactions.
