Gemalto has announced the launch of SafeNet Data Protection On Demand, a centralised cloud-based services platform for companies to protect data, meet compliance mandates and manage the security of all their sensitive information in every location.

In today’s world businesses are increasingly challenged by the cost and complexity of protecting data across disparate IT infrastructure and hybrid cloud environments. SafeNet Data Protection On Demand helps solve these issues by providing a single data security-as-a-service platform that integrates easily with existing IT systems, DevOps tools and cloud services to protect wherever data is created, accessed or stored.

“SafeNet Data Protection On Demand simplifies data security operations by lowering the cost of ownership, reducing deployment times and eliminating the need to manage multiple solutions,” says Sebastien Cano, executive vice president for Enterprise & Cybersecurity at Gemalto. “The platform’s cloud neutrality model also brings speed, agility and flexibility for users to deploy the data security services they need in minutes with flexible pay-as-you-go pricing.”

SafeNet Data Protection On Demand makes enterprise-grade data protection accessible to companies of all sizes – from the smallest to the largest of enterprises. With no hardware and software to buy, configure or manage, and simple pay-as-you-go pricing, companies can deploy data protection quickly and cost-effectively to secure sensitive information in any environment on demand.

This means they can easily integrate security across all company IT systems and removes barriers between business and DevOps, expediting go-to-market timelines. Companies can scale their security operations to protect critical data in established business initiatives and new growth markets, and address priorities like big data, Blockchain, cloud computing, Internet of Things and digital payments.

“Complexity has always been a pain point for organisations when it comes to deploying encryption and key management, and the growth of cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) will only magnify this challenge,” says Garrett Bekker, Principal Analyst at 451 Research. “By providing organisations with a single consolidated platform accessible through an online marketplace, Gemalto’s SafeNet Data Protection On Demand can allow companies of all sizes to deploy encryption, key management and hardware security module offerings with only a mouse click, eliminating the burdens of physical deployments and also helping resource-constrained enterprises address the growing shortage of skilled security personnel.”

Companies also benefit from Gemalto’s extensive partner ecosystem which helps accelerate the integration of data security across their multi-cloud applications. The platform is designed to work with many of the most widely utilised IT products and technology companies such as Amazon Web Services, Dell EMC, Google, IBM, Microsoft, NetApp, Huawei, Oracle and Salesforce. In addition, customers can quickly develop and build secure higher order use cases through proprietary and/or third-party APIs.
