- Key Insight introduces innovative features, including the capacity to identify all encryption assets and offer detailed mapping that illustrates the relationship between encryption keys and data services.
- Key Insight empowers users to rectify gaps in policy and compliance, eliminating risks and achieving cryptographic agility at scale.
Fortanix Inc., a multicloud security firm backed by Intel Corp., has introduced Key Insight, a novel capability within its Data Security Manager platform. This capability empowers enterprises to identify, evaluate, and address risk and compliance gaps across hybrid multicloud environments.
Making its debut at AWS re:Invent 2023, this pioneering capability is asserted to be an industry-first. It aims to tackle the challenges associated with data breaches, which often result in financial losses, substantial penalties, and significant damage to brand reputation. Fortanix contends that while traditional firewalls and cloud security defenses may safeguard the perimeter, the data remains vulnerable to potential threats.
In the fight against data theft, encryption is purported to serve as the ultimate line of defense. However, Fortanix highlights that enterprises frequently face substantial risks due to a lack of robust control over encryption keys. Fortanix Key Insight steps into this arena, offering a solution that provides comprehensive insights and control over all cryptographic keys. This aims to enhance the protection of critical data services.
Fortanix Key Insight facilitates collaboration among security, cloud, and developer teams. This collaboration is geared towards evaluating risk posture and addressing compliance gaps in alignment with established policies, regulatory mandates, or industry standards. Notable standards include those from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, and the Payment Card Industry.
Key Insight extends the capabilities of Fortanix DSM, providing a comprehensive data security platform. This unified platform encompasses enterprise key management, data tokenization, and secrets management.
Key Insight introduces innovative features, including the capacity to identify all encryption assets and offer detailed mapping that illustrates the relationship between encryption keys and data services. The details are presented in a user-friendly dashboard, enhancing comprehension and usability. Users can evaluate the data security risk posture using visual heatmaps. These heatmaps swiftly identify risks, gaps, and priorities in alignment with established policies, regulations, and industry standards.
Finally, Key Insight empowers users to rectify gaps in policy and compliance, eliminating risks and achieving cryptographic agility at scale. The platform also offers robust reporting capabilities to showcase continuous improvements over time.
