Files passed outside the enterprise in Amazon S3 often contain sensitive data subject to compliance, privacy, and business security requirements. Native Amazon coarse grained protection secures entire files, but provides only an inflexible, all-or-nothing approach to data protection. Fine-grained protection provides far more flexibility, securing specific sensitive data while allowing access to other data within the file.
Protegrity Data Security for Amazon S3 is a high-performance gateway solution that protects sensitive data within files. Delivered as a software appliance, the Data Security Gateway protects data within files being created or updated within the S3 environment without disruption to users.
