In an agreement that will compel quicker migration of sensitive data between public clouds, private clouds and private IT infrastructure, Thales and Google Cloud will collaborate on new features that give organizations more control over their encryption keys – and their data.

“A security team that properly manages the entire lifecycle (creation, rotation, versioning, backup, deletion) of their encryption keys truly has ownership of their sensitive data, no matter where it exists,” Todd Moore, vice president of encryption solutions at Thales, told SC Media. “This is especially true for data that has heightened compliance and sovereignty data security requirements.”

Thales has been collaborating with Google Cloud for several years “to deliver joint solutions that allow enterprises to move and secure their most sensitive data assets to Google Cloud Platform and Google Workspace,” Moore said. This year that collaboration has included services for Thales's Data Protection On Demand in Google Marketplace with plans to add support for other Thales key sources.
