Table of Contents

Features and Benefits


Advanced Security Techniques

  • Uses industry-standard 128, 192, or 256-bit AES encryption
  • Encrypts and decrypts information in real time, so data at rest is always protected
  • Applies whole volume encryption to secure all data, metadata, and associated structures without impacting application functionality


Access and Authentication Controls

  • Employs role-based management to help ensure proper separation of duties
  • Automates key release and virtual machine authorization for rapid operations or requires manual approval for increased security  
  • Delivers keys via SSL encrypted Internet channels


Policy-driven Key Management

  • Uses identity- and integrity-based policy enforcement to ensure only authorized virtual machines receive keys and access secure volumes
  • Enables the use of policies to determine when and where information is accessed
  • Offers key management as a Trend Micro SaaS solution or as a software installer managed within the user’s data center


Robust Auditing, Reporting, and Alerting

  • Logs actions in the management console for audit purposes
  • Provides detailed reporting and alerting features with incident-based and interval-based notifications




  • Provides safe use of IaaS, leveraging the agility and cost savings of the public cloud
  • Segregates and protects sensitive information in private clouds and virtual environments


  • Enhances data security and control by remotely managing cipher keys
  • Promotes safe storage recycling by rendering any data remnants indecipherable
  • Facilitates compliance and supports internal governance


  • Allows businesses to choose when and where information is accessed
  • Avoids vendor lock-in with customer key ownership

Threat Protection

  • Data Privacy
  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Secure Storage Recycling

Common Use Cases

  1. How do customers control and protect their data in the cloud from being viewed, stolen or manipulated by others I share the cloud with or by the service providers staff.  How can I protect against this?
  2. Cloud volumes are mobile.  Snapshots are taken frequently, backups are made regularly and information is shared across multiple data centers to make it highly available.
    • Questions that plague Cloud user like; where my data is at any given time or how much of it is out there, or could I be out of compliance with data privacy laws if my data is moved to data centers outside of my country?
  3. If a cloud provider supplies encryption they still have access to the encryption keys. Clear separation of duties should be employed to protect Cloud tenants’ sensitive information from the cloud provider.
  4. I moved my information back in-house / my project is done / I’m switching cloud vendors.  How can I be sure that my old data is overwritten and won’t be viewable to the next cloud customer using that storage?
  5. I want to control the precise identity of servers accessing my data and control the time and location in which they access information.
