Thales has signed a cloud service provider agreement with STC to provide data encryption solutions for enterprise customers through the STC cloud platform.  

Vormetric Transparent Encryption from Thales encrypts sensitive data before it leaves the enterprise and is saved in the cloud storage environment, enabling information security teams to establish the visibility and control they need around sensitive assets. 

Talal Albakr, vice president - cloud services at Saudi Telecom Company said: “Our partnership with Thales is designed to deliver secure and trusted public cloud services to STC customers across the Kingdom and the wider Middle East region, allowing them to establish strong safeguards around their sensitive data and applications in the cloud, satisfying local compliance requirements and providing greater control and flexibility.”

Philip Schreiber, regional sales director, Thales eSecurity Middle East, Africa and South Asia said: “It is a common misconception that by moving to the cloud, businesses are relinquishing all control of their data. By applying encryption and practicing secure encryption key management, companies can ensure that only authorised users have access to sensitive data. Even if lost, stolen, or accessed without authorisation, encrypted data is unreadable and essentially meaningless without its key.”
