Extend Data-Centric Protection Everywhere You Need It

Store your data in the cloud, compute securely, send and share data with external collaborators, and manage access at any time to strengthen data security and sovereignty. By managing your encryption keys separately from your data, you can mitigate breaches, prevent unauthorized access, and ensure no third party can access your data, Google and Virtru included. You have the ability to choose how you want to host your encryption keys: on-premises or in your private cloud, fully hosted, as well as optional HSM integrations.

Once you deploy one of our Google solutions, you can quickly add additional functionality as our services are built with consistent infrastructure and data protection components — helping you streamline installation and ease of use across your organization.
