Data encryption & protection
It is better to be safe than SORRY, we encrypt your cloud servers
Strong encryption in-transit and at rest
The inner workings of data encryption
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), developed by NIST, is a popular widely used public encryption standard. Known for being remarkably resilient against attempted breaches, AES is used by security services, governments, financial institutions, and other organizations around the world.
AES is regarded as one of the most robust encryption methods in existence. Data encrypted following this method will demand multiple security keys to retrieve the data in its original form.
Data breaches occur when bad actors employ brute force by using all possible key combinations to force decryption. In response to this threat, 256-bit encryption emerged.
With this approach to encryption, every bit you add will double the number of possible keys creating an infinite number of key variations. As the time and computing power to try all the different key variations are staggering, it would take over a billion years to break even a 128-bit key.
AES can be described as a “block cipher” where the data is divided into 128-bit blocks before scrambling it with 256-bit keys. In this scenario, disks store data in a particular way, and disk sectors are divided into blocks which are the same size as blocks encrypted by a block cipher.
The scrambling process involves 14 different rounds of encryption to ensure that your data remains truly unrecognizable. Organizations that use XTS block cipher mode are guaranteed full disk encryption.
How do you encrypt data at rest?
Encryption of physically server
Additionally, Remote Key Management mode provides for central management of enterprise-wide deployment. Key features include Broad Encryption Coverage, HPE Secure Encryption, Secure Encryption Software, High Availability and Scalability, and Simplified Deployment and Management.
Encryption of cloud servers and data
With our approach to DARE, cloud servers have an option of offline backups with military-grade protection. Transparent Data Encryption is used when no changes are made to the application logic or schema. DARE is deployed for DB2, MySQL, and Oracle databases.
Encryption of a virtual data center
As each storage group will be encrypted with its own private key, it will be impossible for any other node that is participating in the network to achieve total data visibility. This process is known as “sharding.”
Whether you’re working with one or a 100 virtual servers, we can secure it efficiently.
How do you encrypt data in motion?
Secure Sockets Layer or SSL is an industry standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in online communication. Whenever SSL technology is used, you can rest assured that all data transmitted between the web server and browser remains encrypted.
This technology essentially creates a secure tunnel between two devices (typically the server and the client) where the data is encrypted when entering the tunnel and decrypted when it exits the tunnel.
