Software-Defined Encryption Leader Forges New Standard for Distributed Environments
Zettaset, a leading provider of software-defined encryption solutions, introduced its groundbreaking new vision for encryption in distributed environments with the launch of XCrypt Service Encryption for Cloud Foundry. With XCrypt Service Encryption, all Cloud Foundry users will be able to encrypt BOSH releases of any data service with a single command and no further user interaction required.
“Zettaset has set out to address this market demand by patenting new ‘point-and-click’ encryption technology encompassing software-based key management, administration, and licensing to maximize the innovation potential of distributed environments.”
The significant growth of cloud services and distributed systems, compounded with the sophistication of today’s data breaches, is forcing organizations to look at security differently and shift focus from the perimeter to securing and maintaining the integrity of the data that needs to be protected. Recognizing that former methods would no longer work in today’s complex, fluid IT environments, Zettaset has forged a software-defined approach to data encryption for optimal performance and scalability in distributed systems and elastic cloud environments.
“Old, centralized models of encryption are far too granular, produce too much latency, and simply can’t scale. They are no longer viable based on the needs of today’s organizations,” said Jim Vogt, CEO, Zettaset. “Zettaset has set out to address this market demand by patenting new ‘point-and-click’ encryption technology encompassing software-based key management, administration, and licensing to maximize the innovation potential of distributed environments.”
Zettaset’s patented, software-only approach to encryption simplifies deployment and eliminates the need for proprietary appliances. With XCrypt Service Encryption for Cloud Foundry, users have access to Zettaset’s XCrypt Full Disk, a high-performance, highly-scalable all-software encryption package. Zettaset also delivers BOSH release license and key managers that automate the management of policies that protect and control access to business-critical encryption keys, thus bridging the gap between manual, insecure ways of managing encryption keys and a complex key management system with a large number of options and settings.
“The advent of transformative technologies like distributed cloud environments and DevOps has brought with it expanding security challenges for enterprises,” said Mike Leone, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Organizations need every tool in their arsenal – especially one as critical as encryption – to fully-integrate with a cloud-operating model consisting of scalability, transparency, and intelligent automation. A software-defined approach makes this a reality.”
