SafeNet to Showcase Cloud and Virtual Machine Encryption Strategies at VMworld 2012
SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in data protection, will offer two sessions at VMworld that address the critical role that intelligent encryption strategies play in ensuring the security and visibility of high value data as it moves into public, private and hybrid clouds.

As more high value data moves into these environments, organizations are increasingly at risk of losing the protection, control and compliance of that data. With data breaches growing in number and intensity, it has become clear that traditional security tactics are glaringly inadequate to guard organizations’ data from unauthorized access or exposure. As such, SafeNet works with organizations to specifically attach security to what matters most,-their high value data. This allows organizations to move away from the traditional mindset of breach prevention and take a more proactive defense to ensure that their critical data remains secure. SafeNet’s intelligent encryption solutions can scale, manage and secure large volumes of data as it moves from the data center to virtual environments, helping companies ensure that their high value data remains protected, even if the perimeter has been breached, even if there is no perimeter.

SafeNet will discuss these issues and more at VMworld 2012, which takes place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from August 27 to August 30. SafeNet, a gold sponsor of the event, will have executives, technical experts, customers and partners present to discuss the following:

“Panel: Real World Perspectives of Using Encryption for

Cloud Security and Data Governance”

Tuesday, August 28th at 2:50 pm Pacific Time; Solutions Exchange Theater

Moderator: Sangeeta Anand, vice president and general manager, data protection business unit, SafeNet

Panelists: Gargi Mitra Keeling, group product manager, VMWare

Ian Lim, vice president, information security for CoreLogic

Ken Owens, vice president of security and virtualization technologies, Savvis

Alan Daines, director, information security engineering and operations, Dell

Sangeeta Anand will moderate a panel discussion around how the lack of physical control, or defined entrance and egress points in cloud and virtual environments, bring a host of security issues – control of snapshots and backups, data deletion, geographic regulatory requirements, maintaining visibility for governance and protecting from an expanding class of new privileged users. Ms. Anand and the panelists will discuss how encryption is being utilized to unify cloud security—allowing customers to protect, control, and comply. The panelists will address how private, public, and hybrid cloud adoption are changing the risk profile of organizations, and what needs to be done to lay the groundwork for secure migration, governance, and protection of an organization’s high-value assets in the cloud.

“A Cloud Encryption Playbook—Enforce Confidentiality of Data in Virtual Machines” (ID: SPO2550)

Tuesday, August 28th at 3:30 pm Pacific Time

Speakers: Rami Shalom, vice president, data protection business unit , SafeNet

Gargi Mitra Keeling, Group Product Manager, Security, VMware

The hour-long presentation will discuss how to overcome the challenges in migrating sensitive data into private, public, and hybrid clouds with SafeNet encryption solutions working in conjunction with VMware security solutions.

SafeNet in Action at VMworld

VMworld participants can meet with SafeNet executives, its customers and partners at SafeNet’s booth (Number 1901) which will feature SafeNet’s latest data security solutions for virtual machines, cloud, storage and enterprise key management. SafeNet and select partners and customers will provide interactive presentations and private demonstrations of how SafeNet protects high value data in the virtual world.
