SafeNet, Inc. Key Developments

SafeNet, Inc. Announces ProtectV for Service Providers

SafeNet, Inc. announced ProtectV for Service Providers, an encryption solution that lets service providers deliver enhanced data protection and access control to their customers when storing their data in cloud and virtual environments. With analysts predicting that up to 70% of organizations will be using virtualization by the end of 2015, the ability to secure all data that is stored in the cloud is an imperative for both service provider business models and enterprises' adherence to the increasing number of compliance regulations. ProtectV can be deployed into a customer environment as part of a service provider's Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering, and delivers full encryption of virtual machines and storage volumes that their customers can use to protect their data and segregate it from the provider and other customers. It prevents unauthorized data access by enabling organizations to separate and control their information in multi-tenant environments, including public and hybrid cloud models. ProtectV for Service Providers is available for Amazon Web Services partners and VMware-based cloud platforms. The SafeNet solution delivers a number of benefits specifically to meet the needs of service providers and enterprises by combining the flexibility of the cloud with the enhanced data security of encryption. Among these is the ability to quickly provision encryption services for customers and then offer the service on a pay-as-you-go basis, due to both a flexible billing package and a built-in usage metering API. ProtectV also enables seamless integration with existing service offerings with programmatic API support. For enterprises, the solution allows them to use IaaS offerings with full data lifecycle accountability, audit trails, and detailed compliance reporting. This helps organizations that might otherwise have been discouraged from using cloud services to have full confidence of data control within cloud environments. ProtectV also provides pre-launch authentication and granular access controls to deliver complete control and proof of ownership for both the encrypted data and associated keys by both the customer and their service provider. ProtectV combines with SafeNet's virtual or hardware key management solutions to deliver FIPS 140-2-level security. ProtectV for Service Providers offers suppliers of virtualized services the ability to secure their cloud, assuring them the ability to deliver a unique level of trust to their clients.

SafeNet Announces Inclusion of IEEE Software Taggant System in Sentinel LDK Software Monetization Solution

SafeNet, Inc. announced that its Sentinel(R) LDK (Licensing Development Kit) solution for software protection, licensing, and management, now incorporates the IEEE Software Taggant System to overcome the issue of false positive detection of protected ("packed") applications as malware. The Taggant System, which may be used by the makers of commercial packing and obfuscation programs and antivirus vendors, places a cryptographically secure marker in the packed and obfuscated files created by commercial software distribution packaging programs (packers). Legitimate packers are often abused by malware creators to create many, difficult-to-detect variants of their malware. The Taggant System markers identify the specific packer user license key, used to create an instance of packed software. If the software is identified as malware, the relevant packer user can then be blacklisted, and all files created by that packer user will be reported as suspicious in the Taggant System.
