Ingrian Introduces Key Management Initiatives to Provide Best Practices for Encryption Implementations

New Guide Outlines a Strategic Approach to Enterprise Key Management Geared Towards Educating Enterprises About Key Management a

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/29/07 -- Ingrian® Networks, Inc., the leading provider of data privacy solutions, today announced details of key management initiatives designed to provide guidance and best practices for encryption implementations. The best practices, culled from work on more than 100 Fortune 1000 deployments, are detailed in the white paper "A Strategic Approach to Enterprise Key Management" which offers guidance into enterprise-wide key management, outlining the critical system components required, and the essential criteria with which to evaluate an effective solution. The paper can be downloaded at

"As the requirements of data security grow, customers are using multiple encryption tools each with its own individual tools for key management. This can lead to isolated key management silos, redundant operations, and lots of security vulnerabilities," said Jon Oltsik, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. "To ensure the confidentiality and privacy of encrypted data, it's critical that enterprises recognize the importance of centralized key management with an appropriate strategy and learn how to evaluate their options."

Of the dozens of data breaches reported this year -- many could have been avoided by implementing secure key management. Ingrian has outlined the following criteria for retailers, banks and other organizations processing sensitive customer data as crucial to an effective key management system and encryption strategy:

--  Security: Administrators, users, partners and customers need to know
    they can trust that their data and identities are safe at all times. This
    addresses features like centralized authority, storage, authentication and
--  Performance: The system must function in a manner that is transparent
    to legitimate data users and business processes, and it must scale easily.
--  Flexibility: The system must be adaptable to a range of environments
    and be capable of integration, through standard interfaces, with all types
    of data encryption systems from a range of vendors.
--  Manageability: Key and policy management must be simple and intuitive
    so that administrators fully understand -- and granularly control -- system
    status at all times. There must also be capabilities for logging and
    auditing all administrator and user actions.
--  Availability: The system must be able to recover in the event of one
    or more network or equipment failures, or even a widespread disaster.

"We have learned from industry experiences and we've seen scores of successful encryption implementations," said Derek Tumulak, vice president of product management of Ingrian. "As compliance and the cost of breaches increases, it's important to us to build the experience and knowledge into a framework based on proven, real-world expertise."
