Available with each of our cloud hosting solutions, VMware VM Encryption from UKFast offers a straight-forward encryption solution for your virtual machines that doesn't require you to build, maintain, and secure your own key management infrastructure.
When you create an encrypted VM and attach it to a supported instance type, the types of data encrypted include:
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.
Encryption keys are stored in our in-house, highly available KMS, to FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Level 1 compliance.
VM Encryption protects not only your VM but also VM disks and other files, providing end-to-end encryption for your data. With this service we also include encrypted backups as standard, giving you absolute peace of mind.
Encrypting data at rest is vital for regulatory compliance to ensure that sensitive data saved on disks is not readable by any user or application without a valid key. Centralise policy enforcement and provide a single audit point to facilitate proof of governance.
Create encrypted VMs and encrypt existing VMs quickly and easily in MyUKFast.
It's that simple!
Your encryption keys are securely stored within our KMS infrastructure, our managed service which enables easy creation and control of encryption keys. Only admins with encryption privileges can perform encryption and decryption tasks.
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 VM are automatically and securely stored on our highly available, redundant KMS (Key Management System), independent of other UKFast architecture. Upon enabling encryption on any virtual machines in your cloud or dedicated server solution, all backups will be set to encrypted mode from this point onwards.
