Fortanix Introduces ‘Key Insight’ to its DSM Platform

Fortanix Inc., a data security company and pioneer of “confidential computing,” announces “Key Insight,” a new capability in the trademarked Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) platform that enables enterprises to discover, assess, and remediate risk and compliance gaps across hybrid multi-cloud environments. The company is showcasing Key Insight for the AWS cloud service platform at AWS re:Invent 2023 through Friday in Las Vegas.

Data breaches lead to monetary losses, hefty penalties and severe brand damage. While traditional firewalls and cloud security defenses shield the perimeter, the data remains vulnerable. Encryption is the final line of defense, but enterprises lack robust control over encryption keys, leading to risk.

Enterprises need to fortify security beyond perimeter layers and are driving the paradigm shift towards a data-centric security model with visibility and control over encryption assets.

Fortanix Key Insight provides consolidated insights and control of all cryptographic keys to protect critical data services. Security, cloud and developer teams can collaborate to assess risk posture and remediate compliance gaps consistent with policies, regulatory mandates or industry standards (e.g., NIST, GDPR, PCI, etc.).

Key Insight expands the power of Fortanix DSM, a unified data security platform for enterprise key management, data tokenization, secrets management and more.

Fortanix Key Insight offers these innovations to enhance data security:

  • Discover all encryption assets, and provide a detailed mapping between encryption keys and data services in an intuitive and easy-to-understand dashboard
  • Assess data security risk posture through visual heatmaps that pinpoint risks, gaps and priorities against established policies, regulations and industry standards
  • Remediate gaps in policy and compliance to eliminate risk and to achieve crypto agility at scale, with robust reporting to demonstrate continuous improvements over time
