Since we announced IBM Cloud Data Shield experimental, we have been hard at work helping our early adopters (Irene Energy and iExec) develop their Zero Trust platforms and building the next version of Data Shield. Today, we are excited to announce Data Shield beta!
Founded on the principle that the cloud offers a unique opportunity to do security right, IBM Cloud now offers an industry-first data-in-use protection solution for cloud-native applications. These new capabilities are poised to allow a new set of data-centric applications to move to the cloud, enabling enterprises to adopt cloud with confidence.
Announcing IBM Cloud Data Shield Experimental – Scalable Data-in-Use Protection for Your Container Workloads
Data Shield, powered by Fortanix, provides data-in-use protection for your container workloads running on the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. It leverages Intel® SGX technology to run code and data in CPU-hardened “enclaves” or a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).
We are excited to announce Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) bare metal worker nodes for IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service to help address data protection concerns with containers and microservices.
