archTIS NC Encrypt Integrates with Thales CipherTrust Manager to Secure Business Critical Content in Microsoft Applications

by | Mar 12, 2023

Recently, archTIS worked with fellow Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) member, Thales to integrate NC Encrypt with CipherTrust Manager. MISA members are top experts from across the cybersecurity industry with the shared goal of improving customer security.

Both companies offer advanced data security for the Microsoft Purview Information Protection suite and worked together on a joint solution for customers aiming to achieve digital sovereignty. Together, NC Encrypt with CipherTrust Manager offers a viable solution for customers using Microsoft 365 applications who are determined to keep their keys separated from their data in the cloud. Benefits to the customer include:

    • Demonstrate compliance with local data privacy regulations such as GDPR, PCI-DSS and CCPA
    • Independent management of encryption keys outside of the cloud
    • Leverage CipherTrust Manager to connect to existing HSMs
    • Centralized, scalable, and standards-based encryption key management

Released in October 2022, this joint solution is particularly interesting to organizations based outside of the U.S. that operate in the government, defense and manufacturing sectors and those needing to secure highly sensitive data.

Customers already using Thales HSMs that want the added value of dynamic, policy-driven encryption can easily integrate with NC Encrypt.

This is a first-of-kind solution for the dynamic policy-based encryption of content which allows customers to keep keys outside of Microsoft Azure and connect to leading HSMs, including Thales Luna HSMs, the foundation of digital trust.

For additional levels of secure key management and access management, Thales CipherTrust Manager is a unique software that integrates applications that are located across on-premises, private cloud, and public cloud environments and enables best practices for organizations wishing to comply with regulations such as:

    • Patriot Act
    • Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act (CLOUD Act)

The NC Encrypt Connector for Thales CipherTrust Manager offers dynamic data encryption and key management for protecting Microsoft 365 (M365) and SharePoint Server data. It provides the ability to conditionally apply policy-driven encryption of Microsoft 365 data in SharePoint Online, Teams and OneDrive, as well as SharePoint Server on-premises to keep data protected no matter where it is stored or travels: in use, in motion and at rest.

Encrypt business-critical content in Microsoft applications including files (DOCX, PPTX, XLSX, PDF, EML, VSDM, VSDX​, TXT, CSV, PNG, JPG, BMP, TIF)​ and SharePoint list columns values. The solutions support encryption in M365 applications (SharePoint Online, OneDrive, Microsoft 365, Office 365) and SharePoint On-premises and work with both E3 and E5 subscriptions.

NC Encrypt is an add-on module to the base NC Protect offering to control access and apply data protection in a multi-tenancy environment using a single pane of glass to control policies across M365 apps and SharePoint on-premises.

Join us for a Webinar on 22 March as we showcase the joint solution and its advantages for customers aiming to achieve digital sovereignty.
