Encryption Ecosystem Partners
Enterprises can now implement SDKMS with a range of new interoperable security solutions, including:

  • Data-at-rest Encryption: The Zettaset software-defined XCrypt™ Data Encryption Platform has been designed from the ground up for high performance, scalability and ease-of-use in virtual and physical environments. Combined with Fortanix SDKMS, the joint offering provides a comprehensive encryption solution that ensures the security and integrity of sensitive data and enables organizations to meet regulatory compliance requirements.
  • Payments: GEOBRIDGE’s KeyBRIDGE platform supports payments and technology manufacturers that realize the value of a centralized key management system that allows them to maintain their own proprietary key handling techniques, thereby eliminating the need for new development. Combined with SDKMS, the joint solution delivers root of trust and comprehensive audit logging to mitigate against insider threats or external attackers for sensitive transactions.
  • Key Orchestration: Fornetix Key Orchestration is an enterprise encryption key management solution that enables a unified approach to data security by deploying and enforcing encryption across an entire organization. The combined solution with SDKMS offers unprecedented key lifecycle management with unmatched security and privacy of keys with Runtime Encryption.
  • Secrets Management: Vault is a centralized secrets management tool. Vault Enterprise takes the features of the Open Source tool and adds additional features for organizations requiring more collaboration and governance capabilities. For organizations with strict regulatory requirements of their cryptography keys, or looking for PKCS#11 backend, Vault Enterprise now offers support for Fortanix SDKMS.

Fortanix can deliver new HSM and Key Management solution integrations with unparalleled agility through a SaaS-based validation and a continuous integration process. Joint solution briefs can be found here:
