Cipher Trust Manager

The CipherTrust Data Security Platform’s central management point is CipherTrust Manager. CipherTrust Manager is an enterprise key management solution that allows organizations to centrally manage encryption keys, provide granular access control, and define security policies.

CipherTrust Manager works with FIPS 140-2 compliant Thales Luna or third-party Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to securely store keys with the highest root of trust in virtual and physical appliances.
