phoenixNAP Encryption Management Platform

Easy to manage. Impossible to breach

With cyber threats constantly evolving, organizations strive toward the highest security standards to protect their most valuable asset – their data. As a security best practice and compliance requirement, efficient encryption key management is essential to ensuring system security. Creating and managing keys, tokens, and secrets for different cloud services tends to be complex and often costly. That is why we collaborated with Fortanix to provide you with Encryption Management Platform (EMP), an HSM-grade platform that enables centralized encryption management for all your environments.

How does EMP work?

phoenixNAP EMP provides a comprehensive, automation-friendly solution to deploying and managing cryptographic keys, secrets, and tokens. This is possible through integration with battle-tested and future-ready Fortanix and Intel technologies. Powered by Fortanix® Data Security Manager (DSM), EMP provides HSM-grade security and unified interface to ensure maximum protection and simplified management.

Leveraging the power of the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX), EMP enables hardware-based encryption inside secure enclaves in the physical memory. This brings confidential computing to organizations looking to protect sensitive data at rest, in transit, and in use.

Through integration and automation, EMP bridges the gap between on-prem, cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid cloud environments. As a result, it provides organizations a single, DevOps-friendly platform that unifies all encryption, key, token, and secret management processes.

An integral part of our Data Security Cloud, EMP is also available on-demand for phoenixNAP’s Dedicated Servers and Bare Metal Cloud.
