Data encryption & protection

It is better to be safe than SORRY, we encrypt your cloud servers

Strong encryption in-transit and at rest

Data encrypted hosting is multi-faceted. Here is how we protect your data.

The inner workings of data encryption

AES

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.

256-Bit

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.

XTS

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

Artmotion’s approach to encrypted hosting employs HPE Secure Encryption for both local and remote deployments. Local Key Management mode enables a single server deployment.

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

Data At Rest Encryption (DARE) prevents data visibility in the event of theft or unauthorized access. It is essentially the encryption of data that is stored and not moving through networks.

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

The virtual data center won’t store sensitive data in a central location. Instead, we use industry-leading security tools to break up network data files and spread them across multiple nodes.

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?

SSL

Transfer encryption secures the connections between servers and clients. This uses standard TLS, a secure communication protocol used by HTTPS (also called SSL).

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.

Encrypted VPN

An encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) enables users to send and receive information through networks securely.

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.

Custom encryption

Our in-house security experts can also deploy highly customized data encryption solutions based on your specific business needs. So if you require custom encryption, we can help you achieve your security goals.
