AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gazzang, the Big Data security experts, today announced its data security solutions are now certified on IBM Informix, one of the world’s most widely used database servers. This latest certification builds on Gazzang’s long-standing support for SQL and NoSQL databases and gives Informix customers access to high-performance, easy-to-use transparent data encryption and key management solutions that scale as their data environment grows.
“Enterprises around the world are using Informix to gather data from smart meters, sensors and mobile and cloud-based applications, and use that information to gain greater insights that improve the decision-making process,” said Gayathri Magie, business development executive for IBM Core Databases. “Gazzang has a proven, effective method of securing this sensitive, business critical information in relational and document-oriented data stores, in the cloud or on premises. We are pleased to partner with Gazzang and bring Big Data security to our expanding customer base.”
Gazzang zNcrypt™ delivers at-rest encryption of files, directories or blocks of data. The solution operates at the kernel level and is transparent to the database or application above it, meaning reads and writes to the filesystem remain incredibly fast and customers do not have to modify their existing software to run it. zNcrypt also includes process-based access controls to ensure only authorized system functions can gain access to the encrypted data.
Additionally, Gazzang zTrustee™ encrypts and protects the Gazzang zNcrypt keys, storing them separate from the sensitive data and in compliance with HIPAA, PCI-DSS, FERPA and other data security regulations. Both certified security solutions can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment using automated DevOps tools like Chef and Puppet.
“Informix offers comprehensive, enterprise-scale data management for the Internet of Things,” said David Tishgart, senior director of business development at Gazzang. “When dealing with this type of sensitive data, it’s critical to ensure the right protections - including encryption, key management and access controls - are in place. Our enterprise security solutions were built for high performance in large data environments like IBM Informix.”
