Every enterprise is undergoing a digital transformation, with many applications and databased being shifted from legacy infrastructure to the cloud.
GaraSign supports multiple aspects of cloud security, whether you are using a private cloud, a public cloud with a third-party cloud provider, or a hybrid environment of both on-premises and cloud infrastructure.
It is best practice to cryptographically timestamp your data before you encrypt it and upload it to the cloud. This allows you to easily identify if the data has been tampered with at any point in time. GaraSign integrates with all major trusted timestamp authorities (TSA) to seamlessly support cryptographic timestamping.
Encrypt data at rest using a self-managed (i.e. on-premise) Key Management Service (KMS), wherever possible. 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.
When encrypting data prior to 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 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.
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 MFA, device authentication, and approval workflows, on a per-key or per-user basis.
When you deploy GaraSign, you have the ability to 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 HSM. Authorized end-users can use the keys without the keys needing to be exported from their secure storage. Security leaders can enforce granular access controls on a per-key or per-user basis from the GaraSign interface.
