Entersekt selects Amazon Web Services to store data
Sep 17, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Entersekt, a provider of transaction authentication, has selected Amazon Web Services, or AWS, to store data through the company's cloud services.
Leveraging AWS' CloudHSM service, Entersekt will now store the encryption keys for Transakt, which protect highly sensitive bank account data, in the AWS cloud, which protects data by utilizing industry standard, tamper-resistant security hardware technology. By migrating to the AWS cloud, Entersekt maintains full access to their data while benefitting from the added security measures provided and managed by Amazon Web Services. In addition, the AWS CloudHSM service can help companies like Entersekt fully comply with the most stringent regulatory and contractual requirements related to key protection, Entersekt said.
"Having been exposed to Amazon Web Services in the past, their offerings were top of mind for us as we looked into options for storing our encrypted keys for Transakt," said Christiaan Brand, chief technology officer of Entersekt. "Amazon Web Services' unmatched service offerings and trusted name within today's business world made them an ideal company for us to work with especially due to the sensitive nature of the data we're entrusting them with."
