Vormetric Data Security Manager

Solution Overview
The Vormetric Data Security Manager (DSM) is the central management point for all Vormetric Data Security Platform products. The DSM not only creates, stores and manages the encryption keys that protect data, it also enables organizations to manage every aspect of their Vormetric data security platform implementation. The Data Security Manager allows administrators to specify data access policies, administer DSM users and logical domains, generate usage reports, register new hosts, access security logs, manage third-party keys, digital certificates and more. Moreover, as enterprises and service providers need data security management in concert with their other infrastructure, the DSM also provides integration capabilities with multiple APIs and a command line interface as well as a simple graphical user interface (GUI) operation.
