Thales partners with SAP to secure data in public cloud

Thales and SAP are offering new capabilities that enable security teams to own and centralise the control of their encryption keys across public clouds

Thales has announced a new solution aimed at protecting SAP customers' sensitive data in public cloud environments.

The joint solution, which integrates with SAP Data Custodian, will enable security teams to centrally manage encryption keys across public clouds whilst meeting compliance and regulatory requirements. 

“The SAP Data Custodian was created to give our customers confidence that their data will be secure when utilising a public cloud. The introduction of Thales’ external key management service demonstrates our commitment to that mission, as Thales’ unmatched key management solutions will allow our customers to use the high-quality keys they know and trust when working with Data Custodian,” said Dr. Wasif Gilani, Vice President and Head of SAP Data Custodian.

SAP customers can now leverage Thales’ CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager to provide external key management services to the SAP Data Custodian.

CipherTrust Cloud Key manager ensures full encryption key lifecycle management and provides centralised key management to maintain control of sensitive SAP customer data across multiple public clouds.

“Enterprise cybersecurity leaders know that external key management solutions are essential for protecting valuable data assets in the cloud. The integration of Thales’ CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager and the SAP Data Custodian will make it easier for users to manage their multi-cloud encryption keys across leading cloud platforms. We will continue working with companies like SAP to develop the data security solutions needed to address our customer needs throughout the world,” said Todd Moore, Senior Vice President of encryption products at Thales. 

The integration of Thales’s CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager with SAP Data Custodian, builds on a long-term relationship between the two companies on encryption and tokenisation solutions.
