In June 2006, Axalto and Gemplus combined to become Gemalto, with the objective of becoming a leading company in digital security. Following the combination, Axalto Holding N.V. changed its name to Gemalto N.V. Security has a key role to play in the digital revolution – a major trend bringing significant benefits to countries and citizens, in particular through the use of Internet and wireless networks. Trust and convenience are at the core of Gemalto’s vision of digital security. Gemalto’s mission is to make personal digital interactions secure and easy.
As a result of the combination, skills and scale were assembled to serve three important sectors: mobile telecommunications, secure transactions, in particular for financial institutions and commerce, and security, in particular for administrations and networks (“cloud computing”).
- At the heart of digital convergence – we serve diverse markets which are now converging – such as mobile payment – and are viewed as a trusted intermediary
- Positively impacting society – many of the services we enable such as mobile financial services have a direct impact on economic growth in developing countries
- Extraordinary people – our employees have unique expertise and are problem solvers
Enterprise Encryption Solutions
To reduce the risk posed by hackers, insider threats, and other malicious attacks, your organization must utilize encryption to protect sensitive data wherever it is found across your on-premises, virtual, public cloud, and hybrid environments. This includes data at rest in application and web servers, file servers, databases, and network attached storage, as well as data in motion across your network.
Data-at-Rest and Data-in-Motion Encryption
As your corporate data assets grow, data-at-rest encryption is a critical last line of defense. Encryption applies security and access controls directly to your sensitive structured and unstructured data – wherever it resides.
In addition to protecting data at rest, enterprises must also address threats to sensitive data as it traverses networks. Data-in-motion encryption ensures your data, video, voice and even metadata is protected from eavesdropping, surveillance, and overt and covert interception. With Gemalto’s comprehensive portfolio of SafeNet data-at-rest and data-in-motion encryption solutions, you can secure all types of sensitive data across today’s distributed enterprise.
