BRISBANE, Australia, May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move to bolster the security capability of its Enterprise NoSQL database, MarkLogic Corporation has integrated Cryptsoft's industry-leading encryption and key management technology into its upcoming MarkLogic® 9 database. As a result, customers can secure data, and seamlessly manage data encryption keys in an interoperable way without needing to deploy costly and complex proprietary key management solutions.
As governments and enterprises from around the world move to better integrate and leverage their siloed data resources, security of that data becomes a paramount consideration. In most cases, securing this data while also balancing the need of access requires an enterprise-wide use of encryption technology. Once the data is encrypted, an enterprise needs to secure the encryption keys from both loss and from compromise. This need drives the requirement for secure, reliable and interoperable key management technology. By integrating Cryptsoft's encryption and KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol) conformant key management technology, MarkLogic customers can easily secure their data and effectively manage the rapidly-growing number of keys and security objects in a scalable manner that is compliant with the industry standard data security specification.
The OEM partnership with Cryptsoft delivers encryption key management capability via KMIP, a mature, standards-based solution. KMIP is a major draw for enterprises looking for stability and choice within their security solutions, helping them to avoid lock-in to individual vendors' policy and pricing changes. As the steward for the KMIP standard, OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) ensures that industry thought leaders continue to develop and shepherd the standard within a reliable, proven open environment for the benefit of the global information security community.
"Cryptsoft is a true champion of KMIP - having embraced KMIP as an early proponent of the standard, they have established themselves as the major supplier of KMIP technology to the industry while also helping to drive the unrelenting evolution of the standard. Cryptsoft's implementations deliver on the promises of multi-vendor interoperability without additional complexity or exorbitant cost," said David Ponzini, senior vice president, corporate development and marketing, MarkLogic Corporation.
"The exponential growth of mission-critical data within enterprises, coupled with customer and regulatory mandates to ensure data is adequately protected, is a challenge that can only be addressed by interoperable enterprise key management solutions. This is especially true for big data enterprises that are experiencing rapid growth and have unique challenges in availability and performance scalability," said Tony Cox, Director of Strategy and Alliances at Cryptsoft. "Deploying Cryptsoft's KMIP conformant encryption and key management technologies ensure that Marklogic's customers can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that not only are their data resources available quickly and reliably and at scale, but that long-term, industry standard data protection is also assured."
