Your virtual machines hold a wealth of valuable information that cybercriminals are keen to target, so it’s essential that your virtual machines are protected to the highest standard.
Available on eCloud® Private and eCloud® Public, VM Encryption allows you to add an extra layer of security to your virtual machines and have peace of mind that your data is safe, whether your VMs are at rest or in transit.
VMware VM Encryption from UKFast utilises one of the most secure encryption methods in the industry - the AES 256 encryption algorithm - to provide a secure storage environment for your virtual machine data. UKFast is also FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Level 1 compliant, demonstrating our commitment to keeping your data as safe as possible.
VM encryption is perfect for organisations that are conscious about safeguarding their data from cyber-attacks and breaches, including the public sector, professional and financial services, and helps you to achieve PCI compliance.
Once enabled, your virtual machines will be powered off, their disks and files automatically encrypted and the VM brought back online in its new secure state. From this point on, any further writes to disk are encrypted by the VMware host before being written to disk.
Encryption keys for each virtual machine are automatically and securely stored on our highly available, redundant KMS (Key Management System), independent of the eCloud architecture. Upon enabling encryption on any virtual machines in your eCloud solution, all backups will be set to encrypted mode from this point onwards.
