Learn More About Nutanix’s integration with Keynexus’ Unified Key Manager.
As new technologies proliferate and produce new means of creating and organizing technological architectures, they also confront security risks and regulatory needs. Nutanix is a cloud computing company that is a leader in hyper-converged infrastructure appliances and software-defined storage. Nutanix’s software delivers a full infrastructure stack that integrates compute, virtualization, storage, networking and security to power any application, at any scale.
Additionally, the software runs across different cloud environments to harmonize IT operations and bring frictionless mobility to all applications. For added security particularly in highly regulated industries, Nutanix also provides the option of using self-encrypting drives (SEDs) – installed in Nutanix’s HCI appliance – to encrypt data-at-rest. These drives protect data at all times, make the data inaccessible in the event of node or drive theft, and provide the ability to securely destroy all data on the drives.
KeyNexus’ Unified Key Manager (UKM) offers a pioneering encryption key management platform with FIPS 140-2 compliance. Our UKM provides storage and management functionality for the encryption keys generated on Nutanix SEDs, with the capability of scaling to the largest enterprise needs.
Additionally, by providing a fully compliant KMIP server with cutting-edge key lifecycle management, KeyNexus can seamlessly communicate with Nutanix’s software. Our KMIP Server also offers easy-to-setup and use administrative controls, advanced high availability architecture ensuring redundancy across your infrastructure, and enables comprehensive use of KMIP objects, attributes, operations, message elements and authentication methods. This is intended to overcome the older, fragmented key management systems by bringing trust and control to encryption key management through a centralized key management approach that gives power, flexibility and advanced functionality to its users.
