DDN, the global leader in AI and multi-cloud data management, has recognized and acted upon customer demand for full lifecycle management of data encryption keys and related certificates in their products.

After evaluating all options in the market, Cryptsoft's KMIP Client SDK was selected as the solution of choice to integrate into an extensive portion of DDN's product portfolio.
Cryptsoft's trusted and market proven KMIP technology has been licensed for DDN's Flash Storage, Block Storage, GRIDScaler and AI Storage product ranges, which currently encompasses over twenty-five separate products targeting a wide range of storage market sectors. With Cryptsoft's KMIP SDK, DDN can rapidly deliver standards based critical security technology to their customers so they can leverage a broad mix of existing inhouse and onsite key management systems (KMS) from a wide range of vendors that offer varying levels of KMIP standard compliance.
"With more customers demanding increased data security across a wide range of use cases, selecting Cryptsoft to help us add KMIP capability to our solutions was an easy choice given their market knowledge, extensive experience, and impressive customer roster," said Bret Weber, Executive Vice President, Global Engineering Operations at DDN. "The ease of integration and the fact that we get immediate validation with the majority of the available KMIP Key Management Servers was also highly valuable to us."
