Key Management: Your Locksmith For Data Security
You’ve taken the first step toward securing your enterprise by encrypting your databases and critical files.
Hopefully you’ve used a state-of-the-art encryption solution such as NetLib Security’s Encryptionizer, which employs highly secure AES algorithms and 256-bit encryption to make your “data at rest” (the information stored in your files, databases, and backups) unreadable to any unauthorized applications or machines. By encrypting your sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII), you can ensure your systems are compliant with regulations such as GDPR, CCPA, and HIPAA.
And with a FIPS 140-2 validated solution, such as Encryptionizer, you can be assured that there are no backdoors or hacks that can be exploited in order to steal your data. It’s been locked down with the keys you’ve created; those keys form the basis of a mathematical cipher that cannot be decoded.
But what happens if someone steals your keys?
What is Key Management?
You need to reduce the likelihood that someone can steal your encryption keys. And that’s why it is important for every organization to create a Key Management Policy. Key management refers to the implementation of standards that ensure the security of cryptographic keys in an organization. You should establish policies that define the strength of encryption keys, how often they are changed and what happens to old keys. Key management policies also dictate how keys are stored and backed up, as well as who and what has access to them. That’s where encryption key management software can help.
Encryption Key Management Software
Key management software helps you implement your carefully crafted key management policies. Key management software can generate, distribute, store, rotate, and revoke cryptographic keys in order to help protect sensitive information. Successful key management is critical to your data security.
Think of your encryption software as the locks on your database. Key management software is your locksmith. It lets you easily rekey your locks, and then hands out the new keys only to the entities that are authorized to use that data.
If you’ve got dozens or hundreds of installations in your organization, that can seem like a daunting task. You need key management software that makes the task easy.
