Developed for U.S. Government use, KeySecure for Government centrally manages and consolidates cryptographic keys from multiple, disparate encryption platforms.

It offers centralized key management capabilities for a wide variety of third-party solutions including:

  • Backup Media and Storage
  • Cloud Encryption Gateways
  • Cloud Services
  • Database Encryption
  • Disk and File Encryption
  • Big Data
  • Storage and Archive

KeySecure for Government also integrates with Gemalto’s SafeNet data-at-rest encryption solutions to create a holistic data encryption environment.

When deployed with Gemalto’s solutions, KeySecure for Government both manages the cryptographic key lifecycle and provides centralized, high performance cryptographic operations.

“Cryptographic key management system is a critical component of a robust encryption architecture” says Kirk Spring, President, SafeNet Assured Technologies.

“Encryption is often the last line of defense in data security. However, encrypted data is only as secure as the system managing the cryptographic keys generated by the encryption process” says Spring.

“As organizations deploy numerous siloed encryption solutions, the number of associated cryptographic keys and key stores grow exponentially. Security teams struggle with the administrative effort required to manage not only encryption deployments, but also the associated key lifecycle operations” says Spring.

Derived from Gemalto industry-leading technology, KeySecure for Government is available as either a hardware appliance or virtual appliance. KeySecure for Government supports a hardware root of trust utilizing a FIPS 140-2 Level 2 or 3 Luna for Government hardware security module (HSM).

KeySecure for Government virtual appliance supports deployments with VMWare and AWS U.S. federal and commercial regions. The virtual appliance integrates with a HSM for best-in-class security.

The HSM can be co-located with the virtual appliance or operated in a hybrid environment where the virtual appliance runs in the cloud while the HSM is located on the customer premise.
