Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager

The Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager is the central component of the Smartcrypt platform, allowing organizations to maintain control over sensitive data across the enterprise.

Administrators use the Manager's web-based interface to define encryption policies and manage Smartcrypt agents installed on user devices, servers, and other IT assets. Smartcrypt's innovative key management technology lets organizations grant and revoke access to encrypted data at any time, while ensuring that data remains available for auditing, DLP processing, and other essential functions.

The Enterprise Manager integrates with Active Directory to simplify administration and align encryption policies with existing business processes and workflows. Security administrators can configure policy groups to enable multiple levels of access for different departments or user profiles within the organization. Organizations can also make retroactive changes to data access (for example, when teams gain or lose personnel) without sacrificing the time and resources needed for re-encryption.

Take control of your data

Uncontrolled encryption can be as problematic as a lack of encryption. Smartcrypt can be configured to include at least one of the organization’s public keys in every encryption operation, eliminating the possibility that the organization could lose access to its own data. Encryption policies also facilitate access to protected files by data loss prevention scanners, improving DLP efficiency and effectiveness.

Gain insights and maintain compliance

Smartcrypt’s advanced reporting capabilities give security administrators and auditors full visibility into encryption activity across the entire enterprise. Administrators can monitor which files have been encrypted, who has access to the files, and where the files have been shared. Security reports can be generated using the data security intelligence interface in the management console, picked up by a SIEM agent, or retrieved via API for transformation and load to a customer datamart.

Deployment options

The Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager is available as software, a virtual appliance, or a hardware appliance.

When deployed as software, the Smartcrypt Enterprise Manager can be integrated with an organization's existing database and application infrastructure. Smartcrypt Appliances offer streamlined deployment, together with enhanced security capabilities including an optional FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module and a full-entropy quantum random number generator.
