SafeNet to Showcase Cloud and Virtual Machine Encryption Strategies at VMworld 2012
BALTIMORE, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in data protection, will offer two sessions at VMworld that address the critical role that intelligent encryption strategies play in ensuring the security and visibility of high-value data as it moves into public, private and hybrid clouds.
As more high value data moves into these environments, organizations are increasingly at risk of losing the protection, control and compliance of that data. With data breaches growing in number and intensity, it has become clear that traditional security tactics are glaringly inadequate to guard organizations’ data from unauthorized access or exposure.
SafeNet works with organizations to specifically attach security to what matters most – organizations’ high value data. This allows organizations to move away from the traditional mindset of breach prevention and take a more proactive defense to ensure that their critical data remains secure. SafeNet’s intelligent encryption solutions can scale, manage and secure large volumes of data as it moves from the data center to virtual environments, helping companies ensure that their high-value data remains protected, even if the perimeter has been breached or there is no perimeter.
SafeNet will discuss these issues and more at VMworld 2012, which takes place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from August 27(th) to August 30(th). SafeNet, a gold sponsor of the event, will have executives, technical experts, customers and partners present to discuss the following:

Sangeeta Anand will moderate a panel discussion around how the lack of physical control or defined entrance and egress points in cloud and virtual environments create a host of security issues, including control of snapshots and backups, data deletion, geographic regulatory compliance, maintenance of visibility for governance and protection from an expanding class of new privileged users. Ms. Anand and the panelists will discuss how encryption is being utilized to unify cloud security – allowing customers to protect, control, and comply. The panelists will address how private, public, and hybrid cloud adoption are changing the risk profile of organizations, and what needs to be done to lay the groundwork for secure migration, governance, and protection of an organization’s high-value assets in the cloud.
