CloudSpot Episode 17 – Fortanix KMS as a Service

This week, I’m joined by Patrick Conte, VP of business development at Fortanix. In this episode we cover cyber security and KMS services that are critically important to managing encrypted estates. Fortanix has a new approach managing runtime environment encryption, that keeps data encrypted even when in use by applications.

Encryption is now available in VMware Cloud Director as of 10.1 and can be a self service offering for your tenants. Naturally all encryption keys need to be either; managed by the provider in a fully managed service or, managed by the customer in a self service. Self service is now possible with Fortanix Self-Defending multi-tenanted KMS providing HSM-grade security with software-like flexibility.
