cloud_security_EMMicrosoft has picked Thales e-Security hardware security modules to update the software maker’s Windows Azure rights management service.

The nShield HSM is intended to provide added protection for the cloud-based version of the RMS, Thales said Wednesday.

According to Thales, the shift to a cloud-based digital rights management system is aimed to facilitate greater access and easier collaboration among users but brings control and security as priority issues.

“As a result of our collaboration with Thales, our customers can generate and upload their own master keys to a cloud-based HSM and keep complete control over their keys, giving them confidence that their data is protected,“ said Dan Plastina, partner group program manager at Microsoft.

“As organizations focus on moving their more sensitive data and applications to the cloud the issue of retaining control takes center stage and sound key management is an effective way of achieving that,” said Richard Moulds, vice president of strategy at Thales e-Security.
