Cloud Security

Every enterprise is undergoing a digital transformation, with many applications and databases being shifted from legacy infrastructure to the cloud.

GaraSign supports multiple aspects of cloud security, whether using a private cloud, a public cloud with a third-party cloud provider, or a hybrid environment of both on-premises and cloud infrastructure.

Timestamp Data Prior To Encryption

It is best practice to cryptographically timestamp your data before encrypting it and uploading it to the cloud. This allows you to quickly identify if the data has been tampered with at any point in time. GaraSign integrates with all major trusted timestamp authorities (TSA) to support cryptographic timestamping seamlessly.

Encrypt Data With Self-Managed KMS

Whenever possible, encrypt data at rest using a self-managed (i.e., on-premise) Key Management Service (KMS). This is especially important when the third-party is the one storing the data, as is the case with cloud providers. By encrypting the data before it is sent to the storage provider, you benefit from the storage provider’s scale without sacrificing the confidentiality or integrity of your own data.

Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)

When encrypting data before uploading it to the cloud, be sure to use a bring-your-own-key (BYOK) approach. This enables you to retain control over your data while the decryption keys stay secured in a centrally managed hardware security module (HSM). GaraSign enables authorized and authenticated end-users to use the decryption keys without the keys ever needing to leave the confines of the HSM.

Enforce Granular Access Controls

Ensure that only authorized and authenticated end-users can use the keys needed to access encrypted data in the cloud. GaraSign supports granular access controls, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA), device authentication, and approval workflows, on a per-key or per-user basis.

Cloud Cybersecurity With GaraSign

When you deploy GaraSign, you can cryptographically timestamp, digitally sign, and encrypt all data prior to uploading it to the cloud. All cryptographic keys are generated and secured within a centrally managed hardware security module (HSM). Authorized end-users can use the keys without exporting them from their secure storage. Cybersecurity leaders can enforce granular access controls on a per-key or per-user basis from the GaraSign interface.

Sign & Encrypt All Data

Cryptographically timestamp, digitally sign, and encrypt all data before uploading it to cloud storage.

Bring Your Own Key (BYOK)

Generate and store all cryptographic keys in a non-exportable state in certified hardware security module (HSM) or key manager.

Enforce Granular Controls

Enforce granular access on cryptographic keys, including multi-factor authentication (MFA), device authentication, approval workflows, notifications, and more.

Centrally Set Key Policies

Establish and enforce key policies on a per-key or per-user basis with only a few clicks from a single centralized interface.

Support Any Infrastructure

Use any infrastructure that fits your needs, including on-prem, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid environments.

Audits & Compliance

Conduct audits at any time to see which keys were used, by whom, and when, simplifying compliance with data security regulations.
