Fortanix External Key Control and Management for Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

Fortanix External Key Manager generates and stores encryption keys outside of Google Cloud (GCP) and within customer datacenters. Customers can achieve an unshared control over their Google Cloud keys and natively encrypted data.

What you get:

  • Generate and store keys externally, outside the cloud.
  • Customer control over encryption in cloud with customer owned keys.
  • Controlled key Access, central audit, and policy management.
  • Flexible deployment (SaaS as well as On-Prem) to meet GCP scale.

Overview

Most organizations are looking to move their data and workloads into the public cloud. But they are held back because of compliance reasons or regulatory reasons and they are not comfortable with the cloud holding onto their keys. Organizations need greater control and security over their cloud keys.

Fortanix integrates with Google Cloud Platform’s External Key Manager service to enable organizations to move the data to the cloud and get the same level of security for keys that they're used to in their own on-prem environments. Protect your BigQuery and other cloud native services data by doing server-side encryption. Keys for the encryption are never stored at GCP. They are always under your control, away from the cloud. At a click of a button, in real time, enable and disable access to your data from specific instances and locations.
