United States : PORTICOR® supports MICROSOFT SQL Server TDE

August 7, 2014

Securing Microsoft's database in cloud infrastructures with its Porticor Virtual Private Data (VPD), a major cloud data security company that provides the only cloud-based data encryption and key management solution that puts trust into the cloud keeping cloud data confidential, Porticor®, has announced its support for Microsoft SQL Server Transparent Data Encryption (TDE).

The company's software-defined key management solution puts an end to risks around storing SQL Database Encryption Keys (DEK) on the database server, where they can be compromised or stolen.

Porticor consolidated with Microsoft's Transparent Data Encryption protects data via strong encryption, and also safeguards it from 'root' access by administrators.

Virtual systems, and private as well as public clouds, are supported by the Porticor solution.

Gilad Parann-Nissany, Porticor founder and CEO, stated : "Since SQL servers often hold an organization s most important information, they are a favorite target for attacks. Microsoft's Transparent Data Encryption feature encrypts the database, but in cloud computing the question of encryption key management comes into play. With Porticor, the DEKs are never stored on the SQL Server disk, are protected by a 'split key' method, and remain under control of the customer, eliminating the chance of the keys getting stolen or hacked."
