Virtru and ATOS
Together Atos and Virtru have created a joint solution to protect private and regulated data across cloud-based and hybrid platforms. Pairing Virtru’s data-centric, end-to-end encryption with Atos TrustWay Hardware Security Module (HSM), customers can securely migrate to the cloud while ensuring that their data is never accessible to their cloud provider or another third party. The Atos HSM brings an extra security layer by further protecting the keys used to encrypt the customers’ data and generated by Virtru. This solution is available on-premise or as-a-service, depending on customer requirements and constraints.
How Does it Work?
Encryption keys are stored in Atos Trustway HSM and Virtru Customer Key Server (CKS) is used to facilitate communication between the HSM and Virtru ACM. Leveraging the PKCS #11 and KMIP protocols, CKS processes encryption and decryption requests on the Virtru platform by securely accessing Atos-managed private keys. Virtru ACM continues to support authorization workflows on the front-end. The solution enables the enterprise to maintain complete control of all of their Virtru-protected data.
Atos is also a valued reseller of Virtru Data Protection solutions globally.
