Utimaco, a global provider of IT security solutions, has deepened its relationship with Microsoft, by joining the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). The association is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that aims to defend the world against cybersecurity threats better by integrating their solutions with Microsoft’s security technology.
Specifically, Utimaco’s DKE (Double Key Encryption) Anchor system will be able to connect to Microsoft Purview Information Protection. This allows Utimaco’s customers to transition their cryptographic workloads flexibly and securely to the cloud while remaining in complete control. ‘Cloudification’ of cryptography can be complex, and Utimaco DKE Anchor solution allows customers to maintain control of their cryptographic assets while leveraging the benefits of Microsoft Azure.
The Utimaco DKE Anchor allows organizations to leverage cloud services without the need to expose their cryptographic keys. This enables them to adhere to compliance standards that require organizations to maintain ownership of keys without sacrificing the scalability of their deployment. It meets the requirements for two-tier security for the most sensitive data in Azure cloud, allowing Key Lifecycle Management and Cloud Enablement in a single package, enabled by Microsoft Purview.
“This announcement represents an extension of the Utimaco commitment to the Microsoft relationship that customers can count on. It positions Utimaco at the top of the security technology community, where the next-generation cloud security best practices are being defined and where the quantum gap will be addressed. It positions us to be a leader of those solutions,” said Eyal Worthalter, vice president of Global Solution Sales at Utimaco. “By deepening our relationship with Microsoft, Utimaco is better equipped to provide customers worldwide with cloud-based security solutions that protect data – wherever it resides, whether on-premises or in the cloud. We are honored to have been nominated to MISA and are looking forward to jointly developing more solutions that help customers protect their digital assets and identities.”
