Download Product Brief

SafeNet ProtectDB provides transparent column-level encryption of structured, sensitive data residing in databases. Customers use our database encryption solution to protect credit card numbers, social security numbers, national ID numbers, passwords, account numbers and balances, email addresses, and more. 

The solution enables large amounts of information to be rapidly moved in and out of data stores by efficiently encrypting and decrypting specific fields in a database. No changes are required to associated applications, and SafeNet ProtectDB can scale to support multiple data centers in on-premises, virtual, and public cloud environments.

Additional SafeNet ProtectDB Highlights:

  • Works in tandem with Gemalto's FIPS 140-2 up to Level 3 validated SafeNet KeySecure enterprise key manager to provide centralized administration of all keys and policies
  • Granular access controls can be applied based upon role, user, time of day, and other variables, including the ability to prevent database administrators (DBAs) from impersonating another user
  • Built-in and automated key rotation and data re-keying 
  • Comprehensive logging and auditing capabilities to track access to encrypted data and keys
  • Ability to offload database encryption to SafeNet KeySecure for external processing power
