Thales has announced a new data protection capability for Microsoft customers to benefit from the power of the full range of Microsoft 365 applications while protecting sensitive data in the cloud and meeting major data privacy regulations and requirements.
Companies that operate in highly-regulated sectors such as financial services and healthcare, can now leverage Thales Luna Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) with Double Key Encryption for Microsoft 365 and comply with regulations such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the recommendations from the European Data Protection Board (EDPR) following the Schrems II ruling.
Todd Moore, Vice President of Encryption Solutions at Thales said: “Our collaboration with Microsoft is designed to give peace of mind to customers when it comes to security, no matter where or what Microsoft applications they’re accessing. The way we work has changed forever and in order to thrive, businesses have had to increasingly adapt and adopt collaborative applications. The integration of Thales Luna HSMs with Microsoft Double Key Encryption provides businesses with control over their encrypted data, in line with regulatory requirements, regardless of their industry.
