Data Security in the Cloud for Telecommunications

Ensuring security for the vast amounts of user and telco data processed in the cloud

The telecommunications industry collects, processes, and stores vast amounts of data, which is processed in data processing centers, data lakes, and big data analytics programs. To store this data and enable efficient operational processes, telecommunications providers rely on cloud computing.

Additionally, telecommunications providers collaborate with cloud service providers to build industry-specific solutions and enhance their product portfolio. As a result, and by acting as an intermediary, they offer cloud services to their customers, as ‘cloud brokers’.

Inevitably with this development, telecommunication providers also must ensure the security of the data stored and processed in the cloud. Utimaco provides a variety of cloud security solutions that fully or partially protect cloud-stored data while it is at rest or in motion.


Applications for Telecommunications Data Security in the Cloud


Double Key Encryption

Enables protection of sensitive data by securing encryption keys in the HSM and Azure cloud. Without access to both keys, the relevant data remains securely encrypted.


Multi-Cloud Key Management

A bring-your-own-key strategy (BYOK) allows to securely orchestrate services and data flows across multiple clouds and countries, including customers' local data centers.


General Purpose Hardware Security Modules

Enables key generation, storage, and exchange. Addresses various performance levels and physical security requirements while fulfilling compliance and regulatory mandates.



Select the key management solution by hosting encryption keys in the cloud provider’s platform or retaining the ownership control of customer-managed encryption keys.



Replacing sensitive data with non-sensitive tokens enables secure business operations without sharing sensitive information.
