London, United Kingdom, August 30, 2017 –(PR.com)– The Storage Made Easy™ (SME) Enterprise File Fabric™ now integrates with external Vault Key Server by HashiCorp allowing keys for data encryption/decryption to be stored in a Vault instance and be called on demand by the SME File Fabric as needed.
The primary purpose of the File Fabric encryption feature is to protect a user’s/organisation’s files on local and remote storage resources, such as Object Storage, Dropbox or Google Drive, and to achieve this in an easy and seamless manner.
Vault is an enterprise grade centralised secret management platform providing audit logs and key rolling. Service Providers, that offer File Fabric as a service to organizations, can now allow their customers to manage and securely store the encryption keys themselves to meet industry and region specific legal regulations such as GDPR or HIPAA.
For companies that deploy the File Fabric on-premises, this new Vault integration is a strong solution for data protection with full secure audit logs.
Kamran Yousaf, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Storage Made Easy said, “In view of the recent data breaches across the globe this new feature gives businesses confidence that their data is secure and they are in control of access no matter where its stored.”
Encryption is an important part of the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) as it protects personal (and company) data so even if a remote service is breached, the data is rendered useless as it cannot be accessed. This new integration will be a must for Service Providers who want to enable their customers to manage their own encryption keys for GDPR purposes.
