A Blueprint for Data Encryption in Distributed and Hybrid IT

By Avishai Ziv, General Manager of Security Solutions Business Unit, Marvell

Given a choice, few enterprises will change their security solutions and deployments, especially for data encryption. That’s because any change in data encryption can be a painful and daunting task. But in today’s world of growing threats to data security, is there really a choice?

Risk is High

Most of the data breaches we read about in the headlines, which have affected hundreds of millions of customers at prominent companies, have involved data that wasn’t encrypted. Unfortunately, such lax security is all too common. A recent McAfee survey of 12,000 companies that revealed only 9% encrypt their data at rest in the cloud, and only 1% are using customer-managed encryption keys.

Change is Daunting

The fact that most companies fail to encrypt their data is not because their IT security teams are unaware of growing risks or unmotivated to confront them, but rather because legacy encryption solutions cannot cope with the rapidly growing volume of data that needs to be encrypted.

Typically, IT infrastructure at most large companies consists of 5-10 datacenters distributed globally, and at least one public cloud environment, with multiple migration-to-the-cloud projects underway. Given that such companies lack unified, centrally-managed data encryption, they tend to rely on a patchwork of siloed solutions from different vendors, which introduces its own set of complications. Meanwhile, more stringent compliance rules require more rigorous data encryption and management, intensifying the pressure for rapid change.

The Solution is LiquidSecurity® 

Under such challenging circumstances, many security teams are starting to realize that a hardware security module (HSM) designed more than 20 years ago simply cannot meet these diverse and growing demands. That’s why more and more are seeking a comprehensive, secure and holistic approach to encryption that works in all use-cases and environments, such as Marvell LiquidSecurity. This solution offers:

  • A single encryption platform that can be centrally or remotely managed
  • Distributed, scalable and affordable encryption, with low TCO
  • The autonomy that comes with customer-managed encryption keys
  • Unmatched flexibility to “future proof” a company’s investment

The Marvell LiquidSecurity Network HSM product family was designed from scratch to meet the challenges – and exploit the opportunities – of the Cloud era. As such, it delivers the simplicity, flexibility, scalability and high performance customers seek for diverse use cases in both public and private clouds.

With unmatched features such as 32 HSMs in a single appliance, elastic FIPS boundary, integrated load-balancing and high-availability, as well as performance that beats competitors by an order of magnitude, LiquidSecurity is fast becoming the go-to choice of leading enterprises and service providers.
