Following the news about Google’s introduction of Cloud KMS encryption key management, Pravin Kothari, Founder, Chairman & CEO at CipherCloud commented below.

Pravin Kothari, Founder, Chairman & CEO at CipherCloud:

Pravin Kothari “Encryption of data in the cloud is becoming a must-have requirement due to raised awareness, compliance violations and high profile breaches.

“Encryption is only effective is you separate the encrypted data from the key storage. Using the same vendor, be it AWS or Google to store the keys and data still raises compliance and security challenges for many businesses. However, both of these tools might be useful as a key storage options for third-party applications.”
