Multi Factor Authentication, Cloud Security, Data Encryption, Key Management and Hardware Security Module Solutions
Gemalto is a global supplier of data protection solutions to some of the world’s leading companies and governments. They have been established for over 25 years and in this time they have developed a customer base that exceeds 25,000. Their dedication to keeping companies secure and ahead of the external threats has seen many of their solutions achieve the highest levels of security certification and accreditations.
Gemalto boasts an enviable security portfolio and Net-Ctrl have specialised in three of their key solution areas Multi Factor Authentication, Cloud Security, Data Encryption, Key Management and Hardware Security Module Solutions.
Multi Factor Authentication
Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) also known as two-factor authentication secures access to your network, protecting the user and ensuring the user accessing your system is who they claim to be. New threats, risks, and vulnerabilities are resulting in an ever evolving and increasingly dangerous environment that necessitates companies’ to adopt a strong authentication solution to keep their network safe and secure.
By using multi-factor authentication this ensures that a user is who they claim to be. The more factors used to determine a person’s identity, the greater the trust of authenticity.
MFA can be achieved using a combination of the following factors:
- Something You Know – password or PIN
- Something You Have – token or smart card (two-factor authentication)
- Something You Are – biometrics, such as a fingerprint (three-factor authentication)
Because multi-factor authentication security requires multiple means of identification at login, it is widely recognised as the most secure method for authenticating access to data and applications.
The Gemalto multi factor authentication solution provides the user with a range of means to achieve authentication, including token, mobile, USB, SmartCard and Hybrid authentication platforms. All providing the user with strong multi factor authentication. The customer is also supplied with a management platform to allow for easy control over your multiple devices.
How these solutions are being used in the corporate environment today:
- Workforce Authentication – Mobile Workforces need secure access to internal company networks and resources whilst on the road.
- Secure VPN Access – Secure access to your VPN and other endpoints that are regularly accessed for data.
- Secure Access to Citrix and VDI Solutions
- Transaction Security
- Secure Network Access
- Secure Cloud Access
Cloud Data Security Solutions
Cloud and virtualisation gives you agility and efficiency to instantly roll out new services and expand your infrastructure. But the lack of physical control, or defined entrance and egress points, bring a whole host of cloud data security issues – data co-mingling, privileged user abuse, snapshots and backups, data deletion, data leakage, geographic regulatory requirements, cloud super-admins, and many more.
Fortunately, Gemalto’s proven SafeNet two-factor authentication, encryption, and enterprise key management solutions turn any cloud environment into a trusted and compliant environment by solving the critical challenges of data governance, control, and ownership – no matter where you store your data.
In order to guard against advanced threats in a complex and evolving climate of virtualisation, cloud services, and mobility, while maintaining regulatory compliance, organisations must increasingly take a data-centric approach to safeguarding their sensitive information. Gemalto offers the only complete enterprise encryption portfolio that provides persistent protection of sensitive data at all critical points in its lifecycle.
From the physical and virtual data centre to the cloud, Gemalto’s SafeNet solutions help organisations remain protected, compliant, and in control. SafeNet data encryption and cryptographic key management products enable organisations to secure sensitive data in databases, applications, storage systems, virtualised platforms, and cloud environments.

The Gemalto Approach to Enterprise Data Encryption and Crypto Management
Gemalto delivers the breadth of solutions that enable security teams to centrally employ defense-in-depth strategies—and ultimately make sure encryption yields true security. If access controls are lacking, the efficacy of encryption can be compromised. If cryptographic keys are vulnerable, so is encrypted data.
To truly protect sensitive data, organisations must follow encryption best practices as well as establish a strong Crypto Foundation — an approach that incorporates crypto processing and acceleration, key storage, key management, and crypto resource management.
Along with a comprehensive set of encryption platforms, Gemalto delivers the robust access controls and key management capabilities that enable organisations to practically, cost effectively, and comprehensively leverage encryption to address their security objectives.
Enterprise Encryption Key Management
Centrally control your organisation’s encryption keys wherever they reside.
Once an organisation encrypts its data, enterprise security then depends on encryption key management – the ability to generate, distribute, store, rotate, and revoke/destroy cryptographic keys as needed to protect the sensitive information with which they are associated.
With Gemalto, organisations can centrally, efficiently, and securely manage and store cryptographic keys and policies—across the key management lifecycle and throughout the enterprise. The SafeNet Encryption Key Management solutions can manage keys across heterogeneous encryption platforms, offering support for the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) standard as well as proprietary interfaces.
Now, security teams can uniformly view, control, and administer cryptographic policies and keys for all their sensitive data—whether it resides in the cloud, in storage, in databases, or virtually anywhere else.
With SafeNet Key Management, You Can:
- Boost Security
- Ensure Data Availability
- Streamline Administration
- Sustain Compliance
- Enjoy the Benefits of the Cloud
Hardware Security Modules (HSM)
Gemalto’s range of Hardware Security Modules (HSM) provide companies with an extremely reliable, secure and fast data protection solution for protecting application, transactions and information assets by securing cryptographic keys. Gemalto HSMs have been voted the number 1 ranked HSM system in the market worldwide, providing added confidence to its user base.
With the Gemalto Hardware Security Modules you can:
- Offload and accelerate cryptographic operations to a dedicated cryptographic processor that eliminates bottlenecks and maximises application performance.
- Centralise lifecycle management of cryptographic keys—from generation, distribution, rotation, storage, termination, and archival— in a purpose-built, highly secure appliance.
- Improve profitability and achieve compliance with solutions for paper-to-digital initiatives, PCI DSS, digital signatures, DNSSEC, hardware key storage, transactional acceleration, certificate signing, code or document signing, bulk key generation, data encryption, and more.
