BRISBANE, Australia - June 14, 2022 - PRLog -- Cryptsoft's Key Management Interoperability Client (KMIP) has been licensed to the OSNexus Corporation, bringing market proven, industry validated KMIP technology to OSNexus' industry-leading QuantaStor™ Software Defined Storage (SDS) platform.
Securing data-at-rest with encryption technology is an essential capability of any successful storage solution in today's market, including Software Defined Storage. As storage moves from appliance based to software defined solutions, managing the keys used for encryption becomes even more critical due to the multitude of locations encryption keys can be used in storage solutions. KMIP solves this management challenge with a modern, open-standards based, interoperable technology that also ensures the consumer avoids vendor lock-in and maintains control of their encryption keys.
"As an OEM supplier of KMIP key management technology, our licensees demand that our solutions be a functionality complete and fully conformant implementation of the standard in order that they can support all the possible use cases their customers may require," said Justin Corlett, Business Development Manager, Cryptsoft. "One of Cryptsoft's major values to our licensees is our market awareness of other KMIP implementations and our ability to ensure that the technology 'just works' for their customers, regardless of the KMIP implementation on the other side of the connection."
