SafeNet, Inc. is one of the largest information security companies in the world, and is trusted to protect the most sensitive data for market-leading organizations around the globe. SafeNet's data-centric approach focuses on the protection of high-value information throughout its lifecycle, from the data center to the cloud...

Today enterprises buy, build and therefore have to manage hundreds of applications, products, and services from many different vendors in order to develop and deliver services, store data, communicate, and support operations. As a result, IT organizations often have to manage data security in silos and lack the ability to protect data and secure users access to applications and information across IT infrastructures that often leverage a mix of cloud, on-premises and virtualized technologies. 

By integrating its industry-leading data encryption, key management, and authentication solutions with the most widely deployed cloud computing, networking, payment, security, software, and storage technologies, SafeNet empowers enterprises' IT organizations to centrally manage data security and strengthen user access across more technology products, applications, and services than any other data protection provider in the world.


The SafeNet Cipher Technology Partner program benefits enterprise customers because it includes many of the most widely deployed information technology products and services from leading technology companies in the world across key IT services including:

  • Cloud Computing and Virtualization: Amazon Web Services, Google, VCE, and VMware
  • Networking: Brocade, Cisco, F5 Networks, and Juniper Networks
  • Payment: ACI Worldwide, Ingenico, and Verifone
  • Security: Blue Coat Systems, Palo Alto Networks, Entrust and Symantec
  • Software: IBM, Citrix, Microsoft and Oracle
  • Storage: NetApp, EMC, Hitachi Data Systems, HP, IBM Symantec, Brocade, Quantum, Sepaton, FalconStor, and TantaComm

Through its Technology Partner ecosystem, SafeNet enables enterprises to protect their sensitive data and secure access to applications and information through:

  • Strong Multi-Factor Authentication: SafeNet offers both cloud-based and on-premises authentication solutions that help secure corporate networks, protect identities, validate users and the applications that they can access.
  • Data Encryption for Cloud, On-Premises and Virtual Environments: SafeNet provides a broad range of encryption solutions to protect both structured and unstructured data at the application, database and file levels so customers can confidently store data in the cloud, data center or virtual environments.
  • Unified Key Management: As the use of encryption proliferates within enterprises, SafeNet KeySecure provides a unified platform that helps enterprises centrally manage their cryptographic keys for their encrypted data and applications.
  • End-to-End Crypto Management: SafeNet Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) provide reliable protection for identities, payments, transactions, and applications by securing cryptographic keys and provisioning encryption, decryption, authentication, and digital signing services for a wide range of applications.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
