Cloud Data Security

Leverage cloud data storage with complete confidence

As organizations shift more of their sensitive data to the cloud, they introduce several data security vulnerabilities:
  • Cloud providers require customers to provide their own cybersecurity and do not enforce it.
  • Data in the cloud is accessible to the cloud administrators.
  • If data in the cloud is encrypted by the cloud or application provider, the provider holds the encryption keys.
Due to these data security vulnerabilities, your organization may be hesitant to move sensitive data to the cloud.
Cloud-native data security keeps data encrypted while in transit to the cloud and, once there, the cloud services provider cannot view or access your data. Your data is not accessible to the database administrators of the cloud applications and you, not the cloud provider, hold the encryption keys. User privileges can prevent cloud administrators from viewing unencrypted data. DBAs directly accessing the data store will see encrypted data.

All sensitive data is encrypted, including all data fields in all applications, adhering to the AES-256 standard. This includes heterogeneous applications, such as ODBC, RDBMS, and JDBC databases, and applications deployed on premise, in a private cloud, or in a public cloud.

With the Sotero platform, you get true cloud data protection, enabling you to realize the benefits of moving data off premise without the security risk.
