SafeNet supports a variety of proprietary protocols in addition to KMIP. Centralisation makes key management easier, and simplifies the task of ensuring that policies are correctly applied. It also makes it possible to monitor all key-related activity.
Company officials claimed SafeNet was a driving force behind the adoption of industry standards for key management.
“"Key management is the foundation of encryption services, and is rapidly becoming a critical requirement for protecting and managing sensitive data across the enterprise,"” said Vince Lee, SafeNet's ANZ regional manager. "“We see customers increasingly leveraging key management as the engine behind central cryptographic operations to improve data protection and reduce cost, complexity, and sprawl."
