Enables multi-master clustering for flexibility and ease of use
Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager supports multi-master clustering, which means that security keys may be synchronized and delivered in real time, enabling greater flexibility and ease of use. More than 20 masters may be synchronized at a time — for hyper-redundancy and localized availability — so keys are ready and available when and where needed.
Provides more efficient and simplified key management
This solution enables you to manage the lifecycle of keys by automating the creation, import, distribution, and back-up of keys. It enables key generation and distribution from a centralized location and groups devices into separate domains for simpler key management. It also supports role-based access control of administrative accounts.
Delivers secured key management
Guardium Key Lifecycle Manager provides cryptographically proven, end-to-end security for key serving. It offers automated replication for high-availability deployments, supports Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1, and offers users the option to use FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated hardware to enhance key security.
This solution reduces operating costs, speeds implementation, and enables interoperability with wizard-based assistance. It enables administrators to quickly configure integration with KMIP, IPP or REST-compatible devices, and provides an administration welcome page that delivers critical notices. It offers a web-based GUI that helps ease key configuration and management tasks, including automating key provisioning, rotating keys, and destroying keys.
