By: Robyn WesterveltResearch Director, Security & Trust, Sean Pike


This IDC TechBrief provides IT and business executives with an executive snapshot on key management-as-a-service offerings, with specific analysis on the benefits, risks, adoption rates, success factors, select products, metrics, and investment requirements for adopting and enabling them for various applications. The graphics should be used in business proposals, marketing, use cases, and IT strategy and planning documents.

"IT executives should consider the use of native and third-party key management-as-a-service offerings to reduce the complexity of managing data encryption across hybrid environments and increase proactive monitoring over employee access to sensitive corporate resources. KMAAS services enable organizations to reduce the datacenter footprint, centrally manage cryptographic operations, and offload critical key rotation, revocation, and policy enforcement to a trusted provider," says Robert Westervelt, research director, IDC's Data Security.
