Encryption solutions

Encrypt your business-critical data with ANS

Protect your data with encryption at rest

For modern-day organisations, it’s a case of when and not if your business will be targeted by cybercrime. Using a secret code to scramble your data, encryption at rest ensures your information can’t be read by anyone who doesn’t have the encryption key – providing an extra layer of security for your business-critical data and protecting it from exploitation in the event of a data breach or cyber-attack.

Experience end-to-end security, support compliance needs and gain peace of mind with ANS’s encryption solutions, with around-the-clock support and encrypted backups as standard.

Market-leading tech

HyTrust is an end-to-end encryption management software that supports both VM and cluster encryption.

Cluster encryption uses HyTrust Data Control; encryption software originally built for the department of defence, designed to military standards. Data control manages the encryption process by deploying the data control agent, which communicates with our key storage servers to make sure everything is secure at all times.

VM encryption uses HyTrust Key Control, alongside VMWare VM Encryption, to provide a highly secure key management system (KMS). VM encryption utilises the AES-256 encryption algorithm to provide a secure storage environment on a per-VM basis. Data inside the VM, data in transit between the storage array and the instance and snapshots created from the VM are all encrypted.

Managed detection, response and SOC

Managed detection

Deploy next-generation endpoint and anti-virus protection, baseline hardening assessment, proactive attack prevention (e.g. brute force blocking), virus scanning, detection rule management, external vulnerability scanning, dashboards, metrics, reporting and alerting directly to you, the customer.

Managed response

Proactive 24×7/365 incident response to detected threats, external threat intelligence feeds to detect bad actors, monthly security reporting, vulnerability remediation, proactive threat prevention through SOAR playbooks and a glossary of use cases to protect businesses.

Managed security operations centre (SOC)

All data is fed directly into Azure Sentinel, benefit from event correlation from multiple data sources, with Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning constantly updating and identifying ongoing attack patterns. Evolving security use case management to ensure new threats to businesses are detected, production of security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) playbooks and rulesets, and built-in penetration testing throughout the contract lifecycle.
