Thales Releases Advanced Encryption Solutions for Secure Docker Containers
December 08, 2016

Thales announced the release of new capabilities for its leading Vormetric Data Security Platform, extending data-at-rest security capabilities with deeply integrated Docker encryption and access controls, the ability to encrypt and re-key data without having to take applications offline, FIPS certified remote administration and management of data security policies and protections, and the ability to accelerate the deployment of tokenization, static data masking and application encryption.

Announced today by Thales:

- General availability of Vormetric Transparent Encryption Live Data Transformation Extension: A patented solution that enables organizations to deploy and maintain encryption with minimal downtime. Enables initial encryption and rekeying of previously encrypted data while in use. Available previously as a pilot – now generally available.

- Vormetric Transparent Encryption Docker Extension: Extends Vormetric Transparent Encryption’s OS-level policy-based encryption, data access controls and data access logging capabilities to internal Docker container users, processes and resource sets. Deploys and protects without the need to alter containers or applications. Enables compliance and best practices for encryption, control of data access, and data access auditing for container accessible information.

- FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified remote data security management and policy control for Vormetric Data Security Manager V6100 appliance. This innovation enables organizations with the most stringent compliance and best practice requirements to easily manage the full Thales line of Vormetric data security platform solutions without physical visits to data centers.

- Batch Data Transformation: Eases initial encryption or tokenization of sensitive database columns in environments that are protected with Vormetric Application Encryption or Vormetric Tokenization. Also supports Static Data Masking requirements.

Availability: All new offerings are planned to be available in Q1 2017.
