Recommended Migration Strategy

Thales is not offering a direct replacement product for SafeNet ProtectV.

Customers are recommended to migrate to CipherTrust Manager (formerly known as Next Generation KeySecure), and replace their current ProtectV deployment with one of the following 2 options.

  1. Deploy native cloud encryption solutions and manage the keys using either CipherTrust Manager or CipherTrust Cloud Key Manager.
  2. Discuss with your Thales account team if Vormetric Transparent Encryption will meet your requirements.

Questions: Please contact your Thales Sales or Channel Representative if you need help with the migration.
