New, scalable pricing for Alliance Key Manager customers running in edge computing environments.
Townsend Security is extending support of its cloud, container, and VMware Ready key management solution, Alliance Key Manager, to customers running applications and databases in edge computing environments. This new offering provides scalable pricing for customers running a large number of edge computing environments in remote cloud or on-premise deployments. The new offering is called Alliance Key Manager for Edge Computing and will make it easy and affordable for customers to take encryption and proper key management everywhere it needs to go.
“Edge computing requires that applications and infrastructure move closer to end users to achieve performance and availability goals. For edge computing customers, this often means that application deployments move to cloud or remote on-premise facilities. Think of a retail box store that may have hundreds of applications in every store. Or, think of an HMO with multiple hospitals, clinics, and remote providers. There is often a pain point around encrypting that information and deploying encryption key management at the edge to protect sensitive data,” said Patrick Townsend, CEO of Townsend Security. “Encryption key management solutions are too expensive and too difficult to manage in these highly distributed edge computing environments. Those are the problems that we are helping to solve with our new offering.”
Encryption and key management have become a critical aspect of security and compliance management. Edge computing deployments can involve VMware clusters, Cloud web services, Big Data IoT collection, and many other architectures. Protecting encryption keys mitigates the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks, as well as protects an organization’s brand, reputation and credibility. Alliance Key Manager for Edge Computing addresses these needs by helping enterprises reduce risk, support business continuity, and demonstrate compliance with regulations like PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, etc.
“With the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) due to go into effect on January 1, 2020, it becomes more important than ever to protect sensitive consumer and household data with strong encryption. Strong encryption with proper encryption key management is the only protection from class action lawsuits under the CCPA. Wherever your data goes it is subject to a data breach. With edge computing, the data is in more places and is more exposed to loss,” continued Townsend. “Townsend Security’s new Alliance Key Manager for Edge Computing provides the technical support and affordability that businesses need to protect sensitive data at the edge for CCPA.”
Alliance Key Manager for Edge Computing is available for a free 30-day evaluation.
