Panzura’s Quicksilver Cloud Storage Controller encryption keys can now be managed by a KMIP-conformant server, enabling Panzura’s customers to seamlessly integrate with a range of qualified enterprise key management server solutions.
Panzura was able to integrate the Cryptsoft KMIP SDK into the Quicksilver product and complete their testing in only a matter of months, reducing their time to market for a feature in increasing demand. “The Cryptsoft team have proven invaluable in delivering a robust encryption key management solution. The ease with which we could integrate their SDK, their detailed knowledge of the specification and their ability to partner with EKM (Enterprise Key Management) providers really helped us meet our aggressive time-to-market objectives” said Shyam Desirazu, Vice President of Engineering.
