Anjuna makes it simple for enterprises to implement confidential computing by allowing applications to operate in complete privacy and isolation, instantly and without modification. Anjuna Confidential Cloud software supports custom and legacy applications—even packaged software such as databases and machine learning systems. Both on site and in the cloud, Anjuna's broad support provides the strongest and most uniform data security across AWS Nitro, Azure, AMD SEV, Intel SGX, and other technologies.
Use Cases for Confidential Clouds
Even secured databases need to store data unencrypted and exposed in memory. Anjuna assures that both the database itself and its data operate within the secure confines of a Confidential Cloud. Cryptographically and physically isolating data from malicious processes and bad actors virtually eliminates the chance of a data breach or exfiltration. With a single approach, enterprises can protect their data in use, at rest, and in transit. More importantly, Anjuna protection assures that IT insiders are never over-exposed to data they should not see—simplifying compliance efforts.
Secure Cloud Migration
Anjuna makes the public cloud the safest place for enterprise applications and data, eliminating the compromise between cloud economics and strong security. With Anjuna, migrating applications to the cloud means attaining a security posture that exceeds on-premises protection.
The Confidential Cloud delivers simple, strong, and complete microsegmentation—isolating workload compute, storage, and networking in the data center, over public clouds, and across the internet. This produces the strongest and most complete micro-segmentation solution available today.
With Anjuna software, application microsegmentation is intent-driven, automatically eliminating the deployment and management complexity associated with legacy network-only solutions. Enterprises deploy applications on any cloud or on-premises to achieve strong security without configuration changes or the need for network-based firewalls or complex access policies. Only those applications that are authorized to communicate with each other may do so.
Powerful Threat, Vulnerability, and Risk Mitigation
As one of the most powerful security controls available, Confidential Clouds effectively mitigate thousands of high-priority host, application, storage, and networking vulnerabilities present in today's enterprises. By creating an impenetrable contiguous data perimeter around data and running applications, operating system flaws and most zero-day exploits no longer present a threat to applications or data. Misconfigurations—even direct exposure to the Internet—are no longer a data security concern. Access to data is strictly controlled through policy originating from a default zero-trust security posture.
The Confidential Cloud delivers the strongest and most complete data security and privacy control available. Sensitive data created, processed, stored, and networked is protected with hardware-rooted zero-trust protection. This protects personally identifying information (PII) from insiders and bad actors throughout its lifecycle. These Confidential Cloud protections deploy and scale invisibly with data, making deployment and operations simple and transparent to IT staff. And, unlike legacy layered security controls that must be active, data is protected by default, everywhere.
The Confidential Cloud allows two or more parties to share data and algorithms without any party being exposed to another’s private data or algorithms. This is especially useful in such examples as calculating credit risk scores or analyzing private health care data to develop machine learning and AI models. Data can be simply shared for targeted analysis, but never exposed or put at risk.
