Alliance Key Manager for VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers with dedicated key management in AWS – with no access to encryption keys by cloud service provider (CSP).
Townsend Security today announced Alliance Key Manager is available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Alliance Key Manager for VMware Cloud on AWS enables the flexibility and security of a native VMware encryption key manager to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
As VMware users turn to VMware Cloud on AWS, they bring their sensitive data with them – customer names, email addresses and other personally identifiable information (PII). While compliance regulations require protecting this information, encrypting this data has been a challenge for organizations who want the flexibility and security of a native VMware encryption key manager. By deploying Alliance Key Manager for VMware Cloud on AWS, customers can achieve their security and efficiency goals in a cloud environment.
“With subscription and perpetual licensed options for the Alliance Key Manager for VMware Cloud on AWS, we have licensing options to fit the needs and budgets of our customers. Additionally, there are never extra fees for deploying additional nodes, databases or applications - giving your encryption strategy the freedom to scale without having to come up with budget for added licenses,” said Patrick Townsend, CEO & Founder, Townsend Security.
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS.
