Thales has integrated itsÂ data security technology with cloud technology platforms from Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft and SalesforceÂ as part of efforts to help customers manageÂ their encryption keys.
Microsoft collaborated with Thales to provide key management services forÂ Azure and Office 365, which will support users’ efforts to control their data on premise or in the cloud, Thales said Monday.
The two companies previously launchedÂ the “bring your own key” service that worksÂ to helpÂ enterprises manage keys used in Azure.
“The security of any cloud service depends on the level of protection given to the cryptographic keys used to protect the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive data,” saidÂ Peter Galvin, vice president of strategy at Thales’ e-Security business.
Thales also integrated itsÂ nShield hardware security module with the AWSÂ Key Management platform to help organizations control encryption keys in the cloud and revoke or retire those keys through BYOK.
Google partnered with Thales to support theÂ Customer-Supplied Encryption KeyÂ function of theÂ Google Cloud Platform.
The partnershipÂ aims to help Google Cloud Platform clients generate, protect and supply encryption keys to the cloud through an on-premise nShield HSM.
Thales’ Key Management-as-a-Service for SalesforceÂ is designed toÂ store, manage and maintain tenant secrets used to derive encryption keys.
