Porticor: Data Encryption in Public Cloud
Porticor provides key management and data protection – for customers who need to provide encryption both at rest and in motion, using IPSEC. Key management is the more important part of the management challenge, combining both key management and data encryption as a service. Porticor’s solution splits the key into public and private parts. Unlike traditional solutions with hardware based encryption, Porticor manages the keys for either AWS or other public clouds. Their service is accessible through RESTful API, as a subscription service. The Porticor VM image actually runs on the customers to encrypt the data before it is transmitted through the system.
