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
--  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 @...

For those unfamiliar, as a developer working in marketing for an infrastructure automation company, I have tried to clarify the different versions of DevOps by capitalizing the part that benefits in a given DevOps scenario. In this case we’re talking about operations improvements. While devs – particularly those involved in automation or DevOps will find it interesting, it really talks to growing issues Operations are finding. The problem is right in front of us, we’re confronting it every day,...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Arch...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
Application transformation and DevOps practices are two sides of the same coin. Enterprises that want to capture value faster, need to deliver value faster – time value of money principle. To do that enterprises need to build cloud-native apps as microservices by empowering teams to build, ship, and run in production. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Neil Gehani, senior product manager at HPE, will discuss what every business should plan for how to structure their teams to d...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, will contrast how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He will show 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 will also have live demos of building immutable pipe...
When we talk about the impact of BYOD and BYOA and the Internet of Things, we often focus on the impact on data center architectures. That's because there will be an increasing need for authentication, for access control, for security, for application delivery as the number of potential endpoints (clients, devices, things) increases. That means scale in the data center. What we gloss over, what we skip, is that before any of these "things" ever makes a request to access an application it had to...
The reason I believe digital transformation is not only more than a fad, but is actually a life-or-death imperative for every business and IT executive on the planet is simple: there will be no place for an “industrial enterprise” in a digital world. Transformation, by definition, is a metamorphosis from one state to another, wholly new state. As such, a true digital transformation must be the act of transforming an industrial-era organization into something wholly different – the Digital Enter...
DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
