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 http://www.ingrian.com/solutions_resource.html

"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
    others.
--  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."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Dale Levesque, Disaster Recovery Product Manager with Windstream's Cloud and Data Center Marketing team, will discuss the benefits of the cloud model, which far outweigh the traditional approach, and how enterprises need to ensure that their needs are properly being met.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
In his General Session at DevOps Summit, Asaf Yigal, Co-Founder & VP of Product at Logz.io, will explore the value of Kibana 4 for log analysis and will give a real live, hands-on tutorial on how to set up Kibana 4 and get the most out of Apache log files. He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
