Smartcrypt Appliance

Turnkey encryption management plus enhanced data protection

The Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager is the central component of PKWARE’s Smartcrypt platform, managing the data discovery and encryption agents across an organization’s servers, user devices, and more.

For simplified deployment and enhanced security features, the Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager is available as a virtual appliance or hardware appliance, with an optional FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module and a full-entropy quantum random number generator.

Unprecedented capabilities

Smartcrypt Appliances have everything you’d expect from a world-class key management appliance: automatic failover, high availability, support for encryption on servers and databases, and full key lifecycle and policy management.

But PKWARE goes further. Only Smartcrypt Appliances offer:

  • Persistent encryption: protection for data wherever it travels, not just when it’s stored in a certain server or drive
  • Out-of-the box support for encryption on desktops, laptops, mobile devices, and email
  • Support for data discovery, so you can find where all your sensitive data is located
  • An optional full-entropy quantum random number generator
