Townsend Security Brings Alliance Key Manager to AWS Marketplace

Townsend Security has announced the availability of its Alliance Key Manager in AWS Marketplace.

Alliance Key Manager is deployed as an AMI from AWS Marketplace and helps organizations to add layers of protection to their data.

The solution also leverages the FIPS 140-2 compliant technology and help business leaders meet industry standards and best practices for encrypting their sensitive data and business applications.

"When Alliance Key Manager for AWS is launched for the first time, it will automatically generate a certificate authority, client-side credentials, and create encryption keys that you can immediately use with SQL Server, Oracle (News - Alert), SharePoint, MySQL, and other applications you run on Amazon Web Services," said Patrick Townsend, CEO of Townsend Security.

"We are happy that Townsend Security is bringing their Alliance Key Manager to AWS Marketplace," said Barry Russell, head of Business Development for AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services (News - Alert), Inc. "Data encryption is a key component to securing data and options like this provide an easy option for customers to do so."

Townsend Security made headlines just last month when its IBM (News - Alert) i security solutions began to support two factor authentication. This support enables organizations to become more secure as they no longer have to depend on passwords as their only authentication mechanism.

In addition, the partnership makes it possible for customers to leverage Townsend Security's mobile-based Alliance Two Factor Authentication software with a range of Alliance solutions for the IBM i including Alliance AES/400, Alliance FTP Manager and Alliance LogAgent.
