Backup and Recovery
Control and manage the encryption keys used to protect your backup and recovery data
In the face of the persistent threat of ransomware and other types of attacks, organizations seek cyber resilience for their multi-cloud, hybrid, and on-premises environments. In the event of a disruption, rapid operational recovery is essential to avoiding issues that can quickly propagate across the organization. Enterprises use backup and recovery solutions to capture point-in-time copies of workloads to defend against data loss and expedite the restoration of normal operations. The keys underpinning any encrypted workloads must be stored securely and separately from the data, rotated regularly, and managed at scale.
Encryption key management for backup and recovery
Entrust KeyControl integrates with backup and recovery products to automate and simplify the lifecycle of encryption keys, including key creation, storage, distribution, rotation, and revocation. Using the key management interoperability protocol (KMIP), KeyControl serves as a key management server for a growing list of data protection solutions and can scale to support thousands of encrypted workloads in large deployments. KeyControl delivers FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant encryption as standard, with the optional addition of an Entrust nShield HSM for FIPS 140-2 Level 3 generation and protection of your keys for high assurance use cases.
