Covata Platform Ends the Reliance on the Security of Networks, Devices, or Applications
RESTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Covata, the industry leader in data-centric security, announced today
the availability of the Covata
Platform, providing organizations a flexible and comprehensive
solution to secure data wherever it resides - beyond the domain, on
mobile devices and in the cloud. The Covata Platform ends the reliance
on the security of the device, network, storage, or application,
enabling organizations to conduct business with the confidence that the
data is protected and in their control.
"Business is increasingly being conducted over untrusted networks and
devices, and organizations must take steps to protect their data
accordingly," said Charles Archer, Executive Chairman and CEO, Covata.
"At Covata, we call this 'Own
Your Data' - combining protection, control and visibility so
businesses can share data with confidence. This release of the Covata
Platform delivers to this promise, providing organizations a flexible
and extensible platform to fully realize the benefits of critical
initiatives such as the cloud and mobility."
A comprehensive solution for data security and governance, the Covata
Platform combines data-level encryption, granular and persistent data
access rights management, and comprehensive visibility into access
activity of the protected dat. Covata functions independent of network,
device, storage provider, cloud provider or application, providing
business a single point of data protection and removing the costs and
operational burden of supporting multiple encryption solutions. Covata
encrypts data at the origination point, eliminating the gaps inherent to
functional encryption solutions, assuring that the data is protected
even when business is conducted on untrusted networks and devices.
The Covata Platform is designed to efficiently handle all of the
functions associated with encryption, key management and security
management at enterprise speed, scale and resiliency. The services-based
approach makes it possible to integrate Covata directly into new and
existing workflows, as well as integrate Covata with other solutions in
the operational and security ecosystem. The Covata
SDK exposes the power of the Covata Platform via RESTful APIs and
client libraries (C#, iOS Objective-C and Java). The SDK empowers
businesses, services providers and partners to build new applications
and services beyond the domain, into the cloud and onto mobile devices
with the assurance that the data is protected however it travels and
wherever it rests.
Covata offers clients solutions such as Covata
Safe Share to leverage the full capabilities of the Covata Platform.
Safe Share provides users a simple intuitive interface to secure and
control data on services such as Box, Dropbox (News - Alert) and OneDrive, and provides
a unified protection solution across multiple storage providers.
Businesses can also leverage Safe Share as a corporate dropbox function
using cloud storage providers such as AWS S3, Azure and Basho Riak CS,
enabling file sharing while maximizing security, visibility and control
of enterprise data.
Covata enables organizations to conduct business with confidence in an
untrusted world. Covata delivers data-centric security solutions that
protect data wherever it may travel - inside the enterprise network,
beyond the domain, on mobile devices and in the cloud. Businesses,
vendor partners and service providers utilize the Covata Platform to
incorporate data-level security into applications, products, and
services, enabling them to maintain constant control over its security.
With Covata, you Own
Your Data and can trust that it is protected and secure, however it
may be shared and used by customers, partners and other parties.
