Prime Factors® Expands Range of EncryptRIGHT® Data Protection Suite Offering More Options for Customers to Reduce Complexity & Cost in Their Operations
EUGENE, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Prime Factors this month released a new version of EncryptRIGHT®
that gives customers more options for managing cryptographic keys
and sensitive data-replacing tokens in their mission-critical
applications. This increased range gives customers flexibility to apply
EncryptRIGHT to their immediate and long term key management needs,
using a variety of key management strategies. The new version adds
support for SafeNet®
Luna® hardware security modules (HSMs), adding to the strategies of
holding keys in software or in Thales®
"The market is now focusing on the quality of encryption keys and their
secure lifecycle management as the best hope for keeping data private,"
said Mark Yakabuski, Vice President of Product Management for SafeNet (News - Alert).
"The combination of tamper-proof cryptographic key management from
SafeNet Luna and the strength of its random number generation with
EncryptRIGHT's suite of encryption and key lifecycle management
capabilities is an effective method to help address these issues.
SafeNet Luna HSMs are built to evolve with customer and partner needs,
from EncryptRIHT interoperability to true HSM-as-a-service
When customers use the tokenization capabilities of the suite, the
options for managing the token vault include the high-performance
proprietary database, Oracle (News - Alert), Microsoft SQL Server and, with this
release, PostgreSQL or MySQL. Changes to both the range of hardware
security modules and to the range of backend databases supported are
driven by customer requests. They asked that the EncryptRIGHT
capabilities support the mixed infrastructures that result from mergers
& acquisitions, or infrastructure migration from one vendor to another.
Additional EncryptRIGHT options are added to reduce the cost associated
with addressing PCI (News - Alert) DSS and other technology audits. Customers can
define multiple security domains to segregate tokenization, encryption,
and key management policy administration by division, department, group,
or even project levels. This greatly reduces scope of review, and
associated, by regulatory domain. Equally welcome, the customers may now
programmatically impose restrictions on user administrators such that
they cannot modify, add, or delete any other kinds of data protection
permissions - a best practice frequently cited by auditors. This release
also offers a 'push button' PCI DSS compliance report that can be
produced immediately upon request, reducing the labor and cost required
to document compliance status.
"We are gratified with the enthusiasm with which customers are
integrating EncryptRIGHT into their critical operations," said Prime
Factors' President Patrick Riley. "Their excitement is infectious when
they tell us how it reduces complexity and cost in their work today and
provides the foundation to address their future encryption and key
management requirements. That input drives us forward and we are pleased
to provide customers the significant new capabilities requested, such as
support for SafeNet's Luna HSM, so soon after the last major release."
This latest release of EncryptRIGHT is immediately available directly
from Prime Factors, with consistent, interoperable versions for all the
major enterprise computing platforms from Microsoft (News - Alert)® Windows® to IBM
System z® mainframe.
