When it comes to security implementations, the amount of friction or overhead generated by an initiative or solution can determine the success or failure of a project. Particularly in the DevOps world we operate in, the speed with which one can deploy and operationalize a solution is critical. This is one of the reasons why we’ve placed such a focus on a simplified data protection service layer that can run anywhere and acts pretty much invisibly as it enables data-centric security.

We’re pleased to be partnered with AWS to deliver a seamless data protection solution for Amazon RDS and have co-authored this Amazon Partner Network (APN) blog that details the joint solution.  This posting walks through the architecture and how it can support Hold Your Own Key (HYOK) or Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) control for customers while tokenizing and de-identifying data in an Amazon RDS database.

The blog also references a CloudFormation template that can be used to spin up Baffle Data Protection Services (DPS) and RDS instances in roughly 5 minutes.  Steps for configuring our admin console, the Baffle Manager, are also located here.

Here’s a quick video that shows how to easily encrypt or tokenize your data in cloud databases as well.
