CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Thales, leader in information systems and communications security, announces Thaless Encryption Manager for Storage (TEMS), the industry’s first standards-based encryption key management appliance for storage managers.

TEMS supports IEEE P1619.3 and is designed to support OASIS KMIP, along with certain proprietary key management interfaces from leading storage vendors. This eliminates the need for storage professionals to deploy multiple key management systems and gives storage vendors the option to partner with an independent key management provider rather than develop and maintain their own key management systems.

TEMS is available as a ready-to-use appliance that consolidates and automates the man¬age-ment of encryption keys for storage systems in a transparent manner, delivering unified, fine-grained and auditable encryption key security controls. This enables organi¬z¬a¬tions to adopt storage encryption with the confidence that their encryption keys are under control and secured in a cost-effective and future proof management system.

“As data breaches continue to embarrass companies and incur real costs, security initiatives have naturally focused on the storage infrastructure. The use of encryption within the switching fabric, back-up tapes, drives, arrays, and host adapters is rapidly becoming essential for safeguarding sensitive information, but many organizations are concerned about reliability and data recoverability issues,” says Jon Oltsik, senior analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group.
