Encrypt your business-critical data with UKFast

Encryption at Rest - Protect your data with encryption at rest from UKFast

For modern-day organisations, it's a case of when and not if your business will be targeted by cybercrime. Using a secret code to scramble your data, encryption at rest ensures your information can’t be read by anyone who doesn’t have the encryption key – providing an extra layer of security for your business-critical data and protecting it from exploitation in the event of a data breach or cyber-attack.

Experience end-to-end security, support compliance needs and gain peace of mind with UKFast's encryption solutions, with around-the-clock support and encrypted backups as standard.

Market-leading tech

HyTrust is an end-to-end encryption management software which supports both VM and cluster encryption.

Cluster encryption uses HyTrust Data Control; encryption software originally built for the department of defence, designed to military standards. Data control manages the encryption process by deploying the data control agent, which communicates with our key storage servers to make sure everything is secure at all times.

VM encryption uses HyTrust Key Control, alongside VMWare VM Encryption, to provide a highly secure key management system (KMS). VM encryption utilises the AES-256 encryption algorithm to provide a secure storage environment on a per-VM basis. Data inside the VM, data in transit between the storage array and the instance and snapshots created from the VM are all encrypted.
