Gazzang Expands Data Encryption Capabilities to Leading Open Source Databases

Gazzang, Inc., the company securing data in the cloud, today announced it will expand coverage of its ezNcrypt data encryption and security solution to more open source databases, adding PostgreSQL, Drizzle, MongoDB and Cassandra to its suite of supported database servers that currently includes MySQL.

As growth of data continues to explode, companies have expanded their use of open source database solutions to include traditional SQL-based solutions as well as emerging NoSQL solutions. This can be attributed to many things, including cost benefits and technological innovation, as well as the emergence of clouds and new IaaS solutions.

The PostgreSQL Database

For more than 15 years, PostgreSQL has provided enterprise-class features with high reliability and stability while pioneering concepts that later became available in other commercial database systems. The PostgreSQL platform has won numerous industry awards and customer accolades, and has recently seen a new surge in adoption, especially within enterprises.

The Drizzle Database

New to the scene, with its first general availability release in March, Drizzle is a community-driven major fork of MySQL designed specifically for the cloud. With a small and efficient minimalist “kernel” and pluggable extensions at its core, plus features like UTF-8 and IPv6 support, Drizzle is an exciting entry into the Open Source Software (OSS) database arena.

NoSQL

NoSQL continues to gain momentum, and two products leading the charge are MongoDB and Cassandra. Both are known for being fast, highly available, and inherently suited to Web 2.0 applications that require massive speed and scale. More and more companies such as Shutterfly, Intuit, Facebook, the BBC, Craigslist, bit.ly and Digital Reasoning rely on NoSQL databases.

“First open source and now cloud computing are driving shifts in the way IT organizations do business,” said Mike Frank, director of products at Gazzang. “At the end of the day, important data that must be protected is stored in all of these OSS databases, so security is a key concern in defining a successful open source strategy. Whether it’s credit cards or medical records or even something more mundane like customer email lists, data leakage and theft are harmful and costly. We’re proud to continue to add new coverage for the full range of open source databases, providing a critical line of defense from unauthorized breach and exposure with Gazzang’s robust encryption solutions.”

Gazzang ezNcrypt provides capabilities to help organizations:

  • Meet compliance standards: PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, FISMA, SOX, GLBA and others
  • Protect against rogue employees
  • Alleviate concerns related to storing data in a shared cloud environment
  • Protect sensitive or propriety intellectual property
  • Implement encryption with zero modification to the application or database

Gazzang ezNcrypt’s expanded database support will be released over the next two quarters. For more information, please visit: www.gazzang.com.
