Database Management Systems are software that stores critical, sensitive information about institutions or individuals that needs to be protected. The number of web applications that can be accessed over the Internet and use databases is increasing day by day. Database security procedures in network supported systems are frequently insufficient, resulting in security breaches. Database encryption is the most effective and secure method of ensuring security. Using ProCrypt HSM, whole database encryption can be performed, or database security can be maximized by encrypting critical tables or fields.
In today's informatics world, there are too many transactions that cannot be monitored every second and these transactions are saved on the disks via files. A considerable amount of the data stored in files and disks could be extremely vulnerable. Up to now, file and disk security has mostly been supplied through software-based encryption. There are two major disadvantages of software-based security. First, the keys used in encryption are accessible to the user, despite attempts to disguise them through means controlled by the software developer. Second, servers or computers running security software do not have the processing power to support high-speed encryption procedures.
Every day, computers process dozens of gigabytes of data, generating a large amount of sensitive data that is vital to security. Encrypting sensitive data in software does not provide as robust a security infrastructure as hardware encryption does. Keeping keys in encrypted text on the device itself gives a high level of security with hardware encryption. Along with ProCrypt HSM, the security of the data on the disks can be done with high performance with a hardware specially developed for encryption. In addition, the keys used in encryption are created and stored in a physically secure environment without human intervention.
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is an encryption procedure that ensures communication over the internet. SSL encoding ensures that user communication is secure. It is widely used in applications such as network scanning, electronic mail, fax over the internet, instant messaging and voice communication over the internet. SSL encryption and decryption can be done on a different server or firewall to alleviate the load of the relevant application server. That is, SSL offloading is performed outside the application server. Although SSL offloading is done outside the application server, this server relieves the load, the firewall or server where SSL offloading is performed in high traffic services will be inadequate and the service provided will be disrupted. SSL offloading processes are performed with high performance with ProCrypt HSM, which has been specially developed for encryption and decryption, ensures the security of keys and prevents service downtime.
