Centralized Cloud Key Management for Multi-Cloud Architectures

What is Cloud Key Management?

Cloud key management is the centralized, singular security solution that manages multiple cloud platforms and applications such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. The use of cloud key management protects confidential and sensitive information across multiple cloud applications all in one safe and secure environment.

How Does Cloud Key Management Provide A Consistent Security Model?

Leveraging a multi-cloud strategy with a single control point allows organizations to distribute assets across multiple environments which introduces numerous benefits: flexibility, reliability, and cost-performance optimization to name a few. Cloud key management services, like Fornetix’s VaultCore, offer the benefits of distributed key management while maintaining centralized governance of cryptographic keys for policy enforcement and centralized control.

Cloud Key Management offers support for AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure

An easy and instant deployment empowers centralized management of countless encryption keys across AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.

  • AWS: Provides a KMIP management of AWS Customer Master Keys and other Key Management Requirements
  • Google Cloud: Integrates with Google Cloud Storage for just in time delivery of Key Material
  • Microsoft Azure: Uses PKCS#11 APIs to register key material from the VaultCore Appliance into Azure Key Management

Forwarding capabilities maintain a barrier of separation between cloud and on-premise environments within a DMZ for an added layer of security
