Gemalto’s SafeNet KeySecure and Centrify


For over 25 years, Fortune 500 global corporations and government agencies have turned to SafeNet to secure and protect their most valuable data assets and intellectual property. SafeNet’s data-centric approach focuses on the protection of high value information throughout its lifecycle, from the data center to the cloud.

More than 25,000 customers across commercial enterprises and government agencies trust SafeNet to protect and control access to sensitive data, manage risk, ensure compliance, and secure virtual and cloud environments.

Centrify Privilege Service, in addition to using the secure data store of the Centrify Identity Platform to store all user, resource, account, and password information, supports SafeNet KeySecure key management appliances from Gemalto for encrypted storage of account passwords on-premises.

Customers have the option of using either Centrify’s secure storage in the cloud, or a key management appliance on-premises (or in the cloud) for encrypting and storing account passwords. With the key management appliance option, account passwords are encrypted and stored by the appliance; there is no copy of the password stored in the cloud.

Privilege Service supports all KeySecure models; specifically, the K460 (with built-in HSM), K450, and K250 hardware models; and, Virtual KeySecure, available from leading cloud IaaS providers.

SafeNet KeySecure appliances are available separately from Gemalto’s worldwide network of distributors and resellers.

With SafeNet Hardware Security Modules, you can:

  • Offload and accelerate cryptographic operations to a dedicated cryptographic processor that eliminates bottlenecks and maximizes application performance

  • 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
