Key Management

The Challenge

Every IT organisation wants to protect its valuable digital assets from accidental exposure or intentional misuse by cybercriminals. Many organisations have deployed a variety of point encryption solutions as a primary method of protecting sensitive data to meet various digital privacy regulations and compliance mandates.


All encryption involves three aspects: the data to be protected, the algorithm or cipher that transforms the data so that it’s unreadable, and the key, usually a random number.

You have choices in deciding how to manage keys. A host of variables drives this choice, but three typical scenarios emerge:

  • Native key management tools: Using the key management capabilities that are native to an individual encryption product or cloud encryption offering.
  • Localized key management platforms: Secure localized key management devices can be used to augment the deployment of individual cryptographic applications.
  • Centralized key management: Used in larger scale deployments where automation is a primary concern or where unification of key management policies is desirable


Our Key Management platform supports your business continuity and resiliency whilst maintaining a seamless user experience

  • Risk Reduction
    Enhances your security posture by preventing the loss, compromise, and misuse of keys
  • Efficiency & Cost Reduction
    Using a key management solution provides many opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce cost:
  • Compliance
    Data protection is a boardroom issue. Organizations must comply with numerous regulations and internal governance policies and standards

  • Data Protection
    Encryption and tokenisation are primary methods of protecting data but are only effective if the associated keys are protected and managed
  • Flexibility & Agility
    Organisations are being forced to be more flexible and agile, which often means moving applications and storage to the public cloud.


Key management can quickly become a labour intensive and confusing solution. Implementing an enterprise KMS is a strategic decision that the organisation will have to live with for many years and making the right choice of solution is as important as the keys that it protects.
