Enables enterprises worldwide centralise encryption policies and enforcement
The security division of EMC, RSA has integrated the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) specification into its RSA Data Protection Manager application to help customers implement a secure way to manage encryption keys across multi-vendor environments.
The data protection manager integrates the OASIS KMIP 1.0 specification, a protocol for communication between encryption systems and a broad range of new and legacy enterprise applications, including email, databases, and storage devices.
KMIP removes redundant, incompatible key management processes and provides enhanced data security while at the same time reducing expenditures on multiple products, said the company.
RSA Data Protection Manager is designed to enable enterprises manage policies and the lifecycle of keys and tokens across the infrastructure. It also secures sensitive data at the point of capture with data encryption and/or tokenisation.
Organisations can now centralise encryption policies, enforcement and key management in a multi-vendor environment using a single management console.
RSA’s KMIP-compliant Data Protection Manager technology is at the centre of developing a KMIP-compliant partner product ecosystem, providing tools to verify the compliance of partner products with KMIP standards and validate the interoperability with RSA Data Protection Manager.
