Summary of Achievements
WinMagic has a very unique approach to Cloud Security, making it a visionary in the Cloud Security and virtualization space. WinMagic quickly identified that a proper foundation for data security meant that enterprises needed to have ultimate responsibility and control over their own data, and that the current model of most Cloud Service Providers (CSP) created a number of data security gaps: encryption keys being accessible by CSP admins, OS-specific security, lack of portability compliance, addition of disparate solutions, etc. SecureDoc CloudVM’s in-guest encryption solution ensures that encryption keys remain in the exclusive control of the enterprise at all times, greatly reducing the risk of data breach due to key loss or unauthorized access. The solution also offers many other unique features not available through other similar cloud security solutions.
Enterprises can now take advantage of a single enterprise controlled platform for all their cloud security strategies, and enforce policies on who can decrypt data, so that even when it leaves the enterprise, it remains encrypted and protected from unauthorized access. This same policy engine can be used to enforce regulatory compliance, good governance and legal requirements on the protection of data. The experience is transparent and near frictionless for end-users, unlike other solutions impacting performance/productivity.
Customers have moved to the cloud or virtualized environment under continually increasing pressure to deliver more value for less cost. SecureDoc CloudVM helps reduce the daily administration burdens by simplifying the tasks associated with securing theses environments – ultimately reducing costs. SecureDoc Enterprise Server – an integral component of WinMagic’s encryption and key management control solution, provides IT Administrators full remote management and deployment capability via the SES console, allowing administrators to simultaneously view all VMs, workloads and cloud instances, with positive identification of which VMs are secured – and providing the tools necessary to immediately bring them back into compliance.
