Improve Cloud Security and Simplify Administration with KMIP-Compliant Key Management
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – October 18, 2011 — ServiceMesh, provider of the market-leading enterprise cloud platform for Global 2000 companies, today announced that it has integrated Cryptsoft’s KMIP-compliant key management solution to provide secure, high-speed encryption key management for the ServiceMesh Agility™ Platform. The integrated solution enables Agility Platform customers to deploy workloads and data securely to private and public clouds using a broadly accepted industry standard to securely manage encryption keys across multiple key stores and certificate authorities.
The Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), governed by OASIS, establishes a standard for communication between encryption systems and key management systems to simplify management and reduce operational cost.
“Security is at the forefront of every enterprise customer’s list of concerns about moving to cloud computing,” said Tim Hudson, CTO at Cryptsoft. “The foundation for all security protocols is the secure storage and management of cryptographic keys. By integrating Cryptsoft’s versatile KMIP-compliant solution into Agility Platform, enterprise customers can take advantage of secure key storage through a simple, easy-to-use, common interface irrespective of which vendor’s key manager is in use.”
