encryption as a service (EaaS)
Encryption as a Service (EaaS) is a cloud service where customer data is encrypted in the cloud.
In the EaaS model, the customer books the encryption of his data with the cloud broker and thus a higher level of security. The customer receives the cloud service as a paid service. He does not need to make any investments of his own and has compliance in line with the rules.
The EaaS concept can include encryption of all stored data, such as hard disk, databases, files and e-mails.
