Amazon EC2: Virtual Disk Encryption and SafeNetProtectV


SafeNet ProtectV encrypts entire virtual machine instances and attached storage volumes while ensuring complete isolation of data and separation of duties. SafeNet ProtectV StartGuard pre-boot authentication ensures that no virtual machine instance can be launched without proper authorization. The copies and snapshots of virtual machine instances are tracked and are impossible to instantiate without authorized access.

SafeNet ProtectV, available on AWS Marketplace, enables organizations to unify encryption and control across virtualized and cloud environments, improving business agility and lowering costs by securely migrating even the most sensitive, highly regulated data to the cloud. Organizations choose between several levels of assurance and deployment modes for centralized key management and retain access to and control of encryption keys at all times.
