Data Protection in multi-cloud environments

Businesses are increasingly challenged by the cost and complexity of protecting data across disparate IT infrastructure and hybrid cloud environments, a scenario worsened by a growing shortage of skilled security personnel. At the same time, researchers at Gartner project enterprise security spending will reach $96.3 billion in 2018 – an increase of eight percent over 2017 – driven by high-profile cyberattacks and data breaches impacting organizations worldwide.  Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, answers these challenges with a first-of-its-kind on-demand security platform. SafeNet Data Protection on Demand (SafeNet DPoD) is a centralized cloud-based platform allowing companies to protect data, meet compliance mandates and manage the security of all their sensitive information in every location with unparalleled simplicity through a unique point/click/deploy marketplace.
