Welcome RSA DPM Customers: Make the Migration Now

Thales eSecurity offers a proven alternative and a simplified migration process to help keep your data secure

RSA DPM Replacement

RSA has announced end of product support (EOPS) for RSA Data Protection Manager, as outlined in its notification. This impacts the following products:

  • RSA Data Protection Manager Appliance
  • RSA DPM Key Client
  • RSA DPM Token Client

The Vormetric Data Security Manager from Thales eSecurity offers a proven alternative for RSA DPM customers.

Maintaining a Secure and Compliant Posture

As RSA DPM end of support dates transpire, customer data may be unsecured and out of compliance with regulatory mandates around encryption and tokenization.

Increased Exposure to Cyber Threats

In the absence of security updates and patches, RSA DPM customers will face increasing exposure to threats, particularly any designed to specifically target the unsupported DPM platform.

Cumbersome Migration Process

Migrating to a new security platform can be a daunting task, especially where knowledge of the legacy product may be lacking due to normal attrition.
