Gemalto has announced that its SafeNet data encryption and key management solutions are now available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organisations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Gemalto’s SafeNet solutions enable VMware Cloud on AWS customers to deploy client-side encryption, centralised key management and tokenisation to simplify security operations such as data visibility, compliance auditing, and policy execution and enforcement.
Gemalto’s SafeNet data encryption and key management solutions help organisations protect their data in the cloud, applications, data centres, networks and virtual environments. VMware customers running workloads in AWS can easily integrate Gemalto’s cloud-ready security technology to:
- Boost cloud security – customers can store and manage keys in central, hardened appliances, and gain the visibility and control they need to consistently and effectively enforce security controls.
- Ensure key ownership – through secure key storage, high availability, and scalability, organisations ensure they retain total control of their encryption keys and data.
- Streamline key management – administrators can centrally manage keys, permissions and policies with more speed, ease, and efficiency.
- Simplify compliance – the centralised platform enables customers to ensure and demonstrate compliance with stringent security policies and compliance mandates.
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere® environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realise new capabilities.

“Companies gain elasticity and speed to market with the cloud, but often want to maintain control over the security of their data. With Gemalto, VMware Cloud on AWS customers have one data protection solution making it easier to monitor and track all of their activities,” says Todd Moore, senior vice president of Encryption Products at Gemalto. “Working across multiple cloud services is becoming the norm. Using a centralised system helps companies take a preventative approach to security instead of reactive one by getting a better understanding of where the data resides, how it is being used and the current threats to privileged users.”
“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers with a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” says Mark Lohmeyer, vice president, products, Cloud Platforms Business Unit, VMware. “Solutions such as SafeNet KeySecure and connectors enable IT teams to reduce costs, increase efficiency and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as Gemalto to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice through solutions that can drive business value.”
