Vormetric Collaborates with MongoDB to Bolster Data-at-Rest Protection for NoSQL Big Data Environments

June 17, 2014

Vormetric has reported a partnership with MongoDB that extends its data protection solutions to MongoDB NoSQL powered big data environments.

In its release, Vormetric said that its Transparent Encryption and Application Encryption solutions combine the performance, flexibility, simplicity and scalability needed to safeguard data within MongoDB implementations, enabling customers to meet compliance requirements, and to protect sensitive information from data breaches.

"The MongoDB ecosystem is expanding rapidly and Vormetric's Data Security solutions are ideal for organizations whose implementations include sensitive information," said Matt Asay, VP of Business Development and Marketing at MongoDB. "With Vormetric, our customers gain critical safeguards required for use of this information."

As described by the Company, Vormetric extends the usefulness of MongoDB solutions by providing data-at-rest security controls that enable customers to safely use sensitive data within their implementations:

-Vormetric Transparent Encryption protects the environment at the OS and file system level with encryption, access controls and security intelligence information required for compliance and protection for malicious insiders and advanced malware such as advanced persistent threats (APTs)

-Vormetric Application Encryption enables developers to easily build encryption for individual fields (such as social security numbers and credit cards) that are not critical to analysis but are a required component of reports and output into the MongoDB environment.

-Vormetric Single Platform for Data Protection results in low cost of ownership, resource use and implementation for using these solutions with MongoDB

"Organizations are eager to use MongoDB to gain timely, meaningful insights and build deep customer relationships", said Tina Stewart Vice President of Marketing for Vormetric. "With Vormetric, organizations gain the security controls needed to reap these benefits while protecting sensitive data within the environment against data breaches, meeting regulatory requirements and adhering to compliance mandates."

Vormetric is a provider of data security solutions that span physical, virtual and cloud environments.
