Olympia, WA (PRWEB) July 22, 2015 -- Townsend Security, a leading authority in data privacy solutions, today announced a partnership with Phase2, the digital technology experts, to offer Atrium users NIST-compliant encryption and FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption key management. By leveraging Townsend Security’s Alliance Key Manager, Phase2’s Atrium is a uniquely powerful and flexible open source collaboration software that revolutionizes the way in which organizations securely connect and collaborate with their project teams.
Data security can be a challenge in collaborative environments. However, the pairing of Atrium's robust authentication and permissions system with Townsend Security's Alliance Key Manager ensures that your data and information is secure and protected.
"With over 250,000 downloads, Atrium is used in organizations across all industries, many of which need systems meeting the most critical data privacy compliance requirements," said Doug Marcey, VP of Products at Phase2. "Our partnership with Townsend Security allows Atrium users to protect their private data according to industry standards, including NIST-compliant AES encryption and FIPS 140-2 compliant key management.”
After enabling the Townsend Security app in Atrium, users will have the option to deploy Alliance Key Manager in the cloud (AWS, Microsoft Azure), VMware, or as a hardware security module (HSM) or Cloud HSM. This process enables users to manage their encryption keys outside of Atrium, avoiding any vulnerability with stored data within the software.
“Phase2 and Atrium are helping organizations communicate securely, share assets, and accomplish work together. We are delighted to help these users protect their private information with Alliance Key Manager,” said Luke Probasco, Drupal General Manager, Townsend Security.
Both Townsend Security and Phase2 will be at Drupal GovCon 2015, the largest event in the U.S. Government Drupal Community, to demonstrate how easy it is to protect data within Atrium. Learn more about Phase2’s Atrium and Townsend Security’s Alliance Key Manager for Atrium.
