According to the research firm Gartner, the events of 2020 have accelerated cloud adoption to the point that technology leaders should follow “cloud first” as a guiding principle. However, while “cloud first” may be the new standard, data still exists in multiple locations across the enterprise and a “security first” paradigm goes hand-in-hand with cloud adoption.  

StorMagic recognizes that modern IT departments require seamless protection of encryption keys, secrets, and credentials. They need an encryption key management solution that works across multiple applications and use cases, and for on-premise, cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid environments. Satisfying these complex requirements with a single, integrated key management platform, deployed in the cloud, has many advantages. Benefits include:

  • Reduced Latency: Placing the key management near the data protection workload reduces latency significantly 
  • Reduced Cost: Reduced cost of maintaining a key management system 
  • Simplicity: One, centralized key management platform to consolidate multiple key management silos
  • Control: Adhere to cloud first principles while still maintaining control of encryption keys
