Guardium for File and Database Encryption

Protecting sensitive information from misuse and unauthorized users is a high priority for every organization that retains business critical and personal data across the hybrid multicloud environment. Data-at-rest encryption provides a layer of security that helps safeguard files and databases from both internal and external threats. In addition to protecting data, encryption helps organizations to address a number of regulations and avoid potential fines. Guardium for File and Database Encryption helps businesses address several key concerns:

  • Safeguarding data on-premises and in the cloud
  • Simplifying management of encryption in a central location
  • Supporting regulatory compliance
  • Managing user access to data with policies and audit logs

    Encrypt your data for stronger protection

    Problem

    Sensitive data left in plain text, whether at rest or in transit, leaves enterprises vulnerable.

    Solution

    Encrypting data at the file or volume level provides broad protections that support the vast majority of use cases. It is easy to deploy and operate. Guardium for File and Database Encryption employs vigorous, standards based-encryption protocols such as Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for data encryption, and agents are FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated. Files can be encrypted or re-keyed while the data is in use, eliminating any downtime.

    Centralize and simplify the security of public cloud data

    Problem

    While data security is built into public cloud storage, the ultimate risk and responsibility for protecting the data resides with the customer.

    Solution

    AWS has become one of the most popular public clouds for businesses, but poorly configured S3 (Simple Storage Service) buckets are often the leading cause of data breaches. As a data encryption solution for the hybrid multicloud, Guardium for File and Database Encryption provides transparent encryption, access control and key management for sensitive data stored in S3 buckets. Easy to deploy agents run on Amazon EC2 compute instances and other servers accessing S3 buckets, Elastic Block Storage (EBS) and on-premises storage.

    Data encryption helps prevent ransomware attacks

    Problem

    According to the 2020 Cost of a Data Breach report, ransomware attacks are on the rise both in frequency and cost to recover.

    Solution

    Guardium for File and Database Encryption will not only provide transparent, file-level encryption, but also strict access controls with consistent policy enforcement and data access audit logging. These controls mean closer management of privileged users, which can help prevent malware from gaining rights to access sensitive data. Audit logging can help organizations to detect suspicious behavior and adjust user rights as needed.
