The Thales Vormetric Data Security Platform makes it easy and efficient to manage data-at-rest security across your entire organization. Built on an extensible infrastructure, the platform features multiple data security products that can be deployed individually or in combination to deliver advanced encryption, tokenization and centralized key management. The platform allows you to address data security policies, compliance mandates and best practices by protecting and controlling access to databases, files, and containers for assets residing in cloud, virtual, big data, and physical infrastructures. This scalable, flexible and efficient data security platform prepares your organization for the next security challenge and new compliance requirement at the lowest TCO.
Thales Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM) uses certificates to authenticate Nutanix nodes for system level security. The self-encrypting drives generate new encryption keys, which are then uploaded to the DSM. In the event of a power cycle or host reboot, the Nutanix software retrieves the keys from DSM and uses them to unlock the drives.
