In the age of global digital transformation, the applications ecosystem has become more fragmented than ever before. Microservices, Kubernetes, cloud-native applications, IoT, mobile etc. have made the applications not only transient, but also heterogenous in terms of languages they are written in and platforms they run on. Off course, regardless of the technology or platform these applications belong to, if these applications need to comply with PCI-DSS, GDRP, CCPA and other data protection regulations, then the data these applications are generating must be encrypted.
Transparent Encryption encrypts/decrypts over the network as data flows between apps. Confidential data generated by an application can be automatically encrypted over the wire before it reaches any other apps. Applications that need access to confidential data only receive the data for which that app has permission. Data access policies are centrally managed, securely stored and locally enforced.
