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.

Highlights

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.

Garrett Bekker, senior analyst at 451 Research: "As cloud, virtualization, and mobile have greatly expanded the use cases for encryption and authentication, SafeNet's has architected its products to address the complexities brought on by these technology trends.  SafeNet's partner strategy supplements its platform approach to product development by making it easier to tie together SafeNet's proprietary products with third-party offerings, providing customers with a more holistic approach to protecting data and securing user access to that data."

Sangeeta Anand, SVP of product management and product marketing, F5 Networks: "Customers rely on integrated security solutions to improve application security, while reducing operational cost and complexity.

David Etue, vice president of corporate development strategy, SafeNet: "Enterprises are deploying an increasing number of cloud, virtualized and hybrid IT technologies, which has made it much more difficult to secure data and protect access to sensitive applications and information.  Data is being stored in more environments and managing secure access to applications for both employees and third-parties has become more complicated.  Through our Technology Partners, we offer the largest inter-connected data protection ecosystem that allows IT and security professionals to protect both data and the users accessing the data, whether in the cloud or in the data center."
