SecureCloud

Hosted or Managed Service for Cloud Data Encryption
and Key Management

Offer your customers additional security from data theft or compromise in cloud computing environments. Whether you package Trend Micro™ SecureCloud™ as a managed or hosted service, this efficient, easy-to-use data encryption and key management solution secures your customers’ data in the cloud.


How It Works

  1. Deploy the SecureCloud key server as an on-premise software appliance or as a managed service hosted by Trend Micro.
  2. Your customers then provision a volume in your cloud offering and encrypt this with the SecureCloud Agent—installed within the virtual machine that is accessing the storage.
  3. Customers register the encryption key used to secure the volume with a unique virtual machine image under their account in the SecureCloud key server. Registration includes specific information about the machine that will be used by the key server to positively identify it in the future.
  4. Virtual machines attempting to gain access to encryption keys will have to contact the key server and pass security inspections before access to keys and sensitive data is allowed.
  5. Key servers can be conveniently located within your data center or at a third-party site.
