A New Cloud Data Security Service Combines Encryption With 7x24 Monitoring
The new cloud data security service combines data encryption with real-time monitoring to provide comprehensive security for HIPAA covered entities and for PayPal merchants.
Several public cloud vendors have recently started to offer encryption for data “at rest” stored within their cloud. However, there are two major problems with such offerings - the cloud provider also wants to act as custodians of the encryption key and they do not provide real time monitoring. “Sometimes data encryption alone is not enough, especially against insider attacks”, said Raj Sharma, CEO of Packet General. “We believe that our customers will be able to sleep better knowing that we are standing the post for them”.
Customers can continue to use their existing public/private cloud infrastructure. “Our data encryption service is cloud vendor neutral. It does not matter where the sensitive server is located. We simply encrypt sensitive data sets and hand over the keys to our customers”, added Mr. Sharma.
“We are leveraging the encryption functionality already available within the Linux kernel. We are just making it easier to use it while eliminating management hassles for our customers”, said Dr. Erez Zadok, CTO, Packet General. Dr. Zadok wrote several stackable file systems including the one that is used to provide the file encryption functionality within the Linux kernel today.
The key benefits of using Server-GENERAL service are:
Transparent cloud data encryption.
Complete and full control over the encryption keys.
24x7x365 real-time monitoring.
Regulatory compliance with PCI, HIPAA and EU Privacy Laws.
The service is available now starting at $20/server per month for encryption and $10/server per month for monitoring (paid annually).
