Informa Migrates Sensitive Data Securely to the Cloud with Gemalto - Case Study 1 CASE STUDY Informa Migrates Sensitive Data Securely to the Cloud with Gemalto The Organization Informa is one of the largest business information providers publishing books, newspapers, financial data, and more. The Taylor and Francis Group, Lloyd's List, iMoneyNet, Agra, and CRC Press are all part of the Informa family of companies. In addition, Informa is responsible for a number of conferences, including GSM, Euroforum, and many others. Informa has around 7,000 employees working in some 150 offices in over 40 countries. The Business Need For the business leadership at Informa, making the move to a cloud-based infrastructure hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) was a compelling opportunity: a way to offload the cost and effort of internally managing their entire European data center infrastructure, while, at the same time, gaining the ability to adapt more quickly to changing business demands. However, in charting this move, it was critical that the organization was able to extend the data privacy and security capabilities they had in their own data center to the cloud. As a leading business information provider, Informa realizes the monetary value of data, and the importance of ensuring that data is secure wherever it resides. Challenge When migrating its major data center to an AWS cloud, Informa needed to make certain its most critical asset – its data – was secure, and ensure compliance with a myriad of data protection regulations for protecting sensitive customer and employee data. Solution With the Gemalto SafeNet ProtectV and KeySecure solutions, Informa was able to migrate to the cloud while guarding sensitive assets against access by unauthorized users. Benefit Gemalto helped Informa fully leverage the business benefits of a cloud delivery model, unifying encryption and control, while improving business agility secure in the knowledge that only authorized users can consistently access data. For Informa, a business information provider, data is mission-critical. As they were looking to migrate their entire European data center to the cloud, they needed a data encryption solution that would provide the required security and controls to safeguard sensitive information—so they turned to Gemalto.
