Thales showcases trusted crypto at RSA Conference 2015
Thales delivers high assurance crypto security and key management solutions to ensure the trustworthiness of applications, cloud services and payments
Plantation, Fl – March 24, 2015 – Thales, leader in information systems and communications security, will be showcasing its high assurance cryptographic solutions for trusted crypto at this year’s RSA Conference, San Francisco April 20-24, 2015.
Organizations increasingly rely on cryptography as part of their data protection strategy and to protect their critical systems. This is particularly relevant in the light of recent concerns over back doors and poorly implemented crypto systems. Thales provides high assurance encryption and digital signature technology to help customers ensure the integrity and trustworthiness of their applications, cloud services and payment systems.
Trust in applications
Business applications that handle sensitive data, control valuable IP or perform critical processes need to provide the highest levels of trust – trust that the application is doing precisely what the developer intended and hasn’t been tampered with. Thales CodeSafe secures the execution of software and controls its access to keys and crypto to create a tamper-resistant application, supporting everything from high-tech manufacturing, content distribution and online authentication to Bitcoin transactions.
Trust in the cloud
Cryptographic trust – confidentiality, integrity, authenticity – depends on the secrecy and quality of keys. This is especially important in cloud environments where the service infrastructure is shared with other customers – maybe your competitors – and is fundamentally under the control of the cloud provider. Thales hardware security modules (HSMs) have provided reliable high-assurance key management for on premise deployments for more than a decade. Now it is bringing that same level of trust to keys in the cloud as a vital component of the Microsoft Azure Key Vault. With a unique ‘Bring Your Own Key’ capability, organizations can remain firmly in control.
Trust in payments
The proliferation of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has dramatically expanded the payments ecosystem, creating new security challenges and new business models. Thales technology can help you incorporate mobile payments into your business while maintaining the highest levels of performance and security. Thales payShield 9000 and nShield deliver secure solutions for mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solutions as well as enabling secure mobile issuance and provisioning of payments credentials to NFC and other contactless devices coupled with host security for cloud based wallets and peer-to-peer payments.
Enterprise class key management
Thales is again participating in the OASIS showcase, highlighting the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), with its high assurance enterprise-class key management solution – keyAuthority. The demonstration highlights the comprehensive capabilities of the Thales solution in the context of a variety of encryption devices from other participants in the KMIP interoperability booth. In addition, Thales key management experts will be available to discuss the evolution of the KMIP standard and the contribution of Thales as an originating author of the KMIP specification.
New Global Encryption and Key Management Trends Study
Thales is releasing the tenth edition of its annual research report – the Global Encryption and Key Management Trends Study. The study, which is produced in conjunction with the Ponemon Institute, is based on a survey of more than 4,000 business and IT managers from around the world regarding the use of encryption, how it has evolved and its effect on the security posture of an organization. It focuses on the compliance pressures and cyber-attacks targeting sensitive data and how and where different types of organizations are deploying encryption and addressing the key management challenges that result.
