Thales Offers Transparent Encryption with BT

Thales, a provider of cybersecurity and data security, will partner with BT, a provider of communications services and solutions, to provide Vormetric Transparent Encryption to its users.

"Security and integrity of data remains one of the biggest concerns for our customers when deploying cloud solutions,” said David Stark, vice president, security portfolio at BT. "Through our agreement with Vormetric, we provide our customers with an additional layer of security that helps them protect data stored in the cloud as well as enhance access control.”

Vormetric Transparent Encryption helps customers encrypt data-at-rest, control privileged user access, and manage a collection of security intelligence logs without re-engineering applications, databases or infrastructure.

This collaboration between BT and Thales represents a significant step forward for organizations seeking to address today’s growing business challenge of protecting mission-critical data and corporate information assets.

BT’s customers will be able to purchase Vormetric Transparent Encryption as a perpetual licence or subscription, enabling them to benefit from transparent deployment, compliance and contractual mandate support, privileged user risk limitation, broad operating system and application support, service level agreements (SLAs), and the ability to scale with an organization’s requirements.
