A new standards-based key management appliance and encryption solution from Thales and Zettaset is intended to deliver high assurance security, performance and scalability for open-source Hadoop and NoSQL.
The partnership matches Thales keyAuthority cybersecurity solutions with Zettaset’s BDEncrypt big data security and implements a standards-based - KMIP and PKCS#11 - data encryption and key management solution designed for open source big data environments such as Hadoop and NoSQL where data-at-rest and in-motion is safeguarded, while maintaining operational efficiency and business continuity.
The joint solution includes:
Thales keyAuthority, a hardened FIPS 140-2 Level 3 appliance that provides high assurance key management to users of storage applications and systems with embedded encryption. A unified management interface reduces silos while automating encryption controls for consistent security policy enforcement across global enterprises.
BDEncrypt big data encryption software from Zettaset is performance-optimized for big data stores, enabling organizations to bring Hadoop and NoSQL databases into compliance with corporate and regulatory data protection initiatives such as HIPAA, HITECH, and PCI.
Commenting on the partnership’s solution Cindy Provin, President, Thales e-Security said. “The proliferation of big data platform deployments, many based on Hadoop and NoSQL, calls for security innovations to protect data in motion, data in use and data at rest. The scale of big data and its highly distributed nature require innovative adaptions for the problems of authentication, authorization and data protection in which cryptography plays a vital part. We are delighted to have partnered with Zettaset to deliver a high assurance encryption and key management solution for big data environments, easing the tensions between usability, performance, scalability and security.”
