Townsend Security to Participate in OASIS KMIP Interoperability with Alliance Key Manager at RSA Conference 2016

Share Article

Townsend Security supports OASIS KMIP standard with encryption key management as a hardware security module (HSM), Cloud HSM, VMware, and in the cloud (AWS, Microsoft Azure).

By relying on Alliance Key Manager, businesses can be confident that they are securing their most sensitive information – such as customer data, intellectual property, and critical business data – with a solution that meets the KMIP standard.

Townsend Security, a leading authority in data privacy, today announced it will again be demonstrating Alliance Key Manager in the OASIS KMIP interoperability testing demonstration at this year’s RSA Conference, San Francisco February 29 – March 4, 2016.

As the cost and frequency of data breaches continues to increase, organizations are turning to encryption and key management to protect their private data. Meeting the OASIS KMIP standard enables interoperable communication between cryptographic environments and encryption key managers – which reduces the operational, training, and infrastructure costs for businesses.

“By relying on Alliance Key Manager, businesses can be confident that they are securing their most sensitive information – such as customer data, intellectual property, and critical business data – with a solution that meets the KMIP standard,” said Patrick Townsend, Founder & CEO, Townsend Security. “Additionally, for organizations faced with meeting compliance regulations, Alliance Key Manager is FIPS 140-2 compliant and can help meet data security requirements in PCI DSS, HIPAA, FFIEC, etc.”

As businesses move to cloud environments, encryption is a crucial security component. Core infrastructure is shared with other customers and is fundamentally under the control of the cloud service provider. By deploying Alliance Key Manager as a dedicated hardware security module (HSM), Cloud HSM, VMware instance, or directly in the cloud (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure), these organizations can remain firmly in control of their encryption keys – never allowing a cloud service provider or anyone else administrative access or access to their keys.

“By supporting the KMIP standard for key management, Alliance Key Manager can be easily deployed anywhere our customers choose – without locking them into a cloud service provider, a hardware security module, or sharing a key manager with other unknown and possibly suspect users,” said Townsend.
