Fortanix, AWS Expand Collaboration

Fortanix Inc., a data-first multi-cloud security company and pioneer of Confidential Computing, today announces that Fortanix Data Security Manager is integrated with AWS External Key Store, enabling organizations that deal with regulated data to run workloads on AWS by segregating data on the AWS platform from encryption keys.

The integration gives AWS customers complete control of data security while helping with evolving compliance regulations.
A common challenge facing cloud platform customers is proving they comply with privacy and security regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Schrems II ruling that mandates sensitive data to remain within the region.

By using Fortanix DSM as a centralized, external key store, users maintain full custody of their keys with complete control over the data encryption policies within AWS or other cloud platforms. This control includes defining where the keys reside, access and policy control. In addition, Fortanix provides a unified platform with encryption services, multi-cloud key management, tokenization, and more.

Specifically, Fortanix DSM integration with AWS External Key Store enables organizations to:

  • Use workloads with regulated data in AWS by segregating encryption keys from the data used and stored on AWS
  • Gain full control of encryption keys and enforce granular access control across hybrid multi-cloud infrastructures
  • Simplify workflows and audits with Fortanix’s centralized key management

Fortanix Data Security Manager is a simple-to-deploy, highly scalable data security platform that delivers a unified suite of services including encryption, multi-cloud key management, tokenization and more. Fortanix DSM is offered as a SaaS solution as well as a virtual or physical appliance.
