Turnkey encryption management and enhanced data protection

The PKWARE Enterprise Manager enables organizations to maintain control over sensitive data across the enterprise. It controls data discovery, data classification, and data protection activity, as well as encryption key management, key synchronization, and key delivery.

For simplified deployment and enhanced security features, the PKWARE Enterprise Manager is available as a virtual appliance or hardware appliance, with an optional FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module and a full-entropy quantum random number generator.

Unprecedented capabilities

PKWARE Appliances have everything you’d expect from a world-class key management appliance: automatic failover, high availability, support for encryption on servers and databases, and full key lifecycle and policy management.

But PKWARE goes further. Only PKWARE Appliances offer:

  • Persistent encryption: protection for data wherever it travels, not just when it’s stored in a certain server or drive
  • Out-of-the box support for encryption on desktops, laptops, mobile devices, and email
  • Support for data discovery, so you can find where all your sensitive data is located
  • An optional full-entropy quantum random number generator
