With the explosive growth of data in enterprises due to the “Internet of Things”, detailed infrastructure logging and monitoring, transactional systems, data warehouses and more, big data implementations powered by solutions like MongoDB have become a critical tool for deriving value. MongoDB is a clear leader, providing market leading capabilities used by organizations to intelligently react to trends, identify critical events, tailor offerings to immediate market requirements and to meet customer needs in a timely manner.

Vormetric extends the usefulness of MongoDB solutions by providing data-at-rest security controls that enable customers to safely use sensitive data within their implementations:

  • Vormetric Transparent Encryption protects the environment at the OS and file system level with encryption, access controls and security intelligence information required for compliance and protection for malicious insiders and advanced malware such as advanced persistent threats (APTs)
  • Vormetric Application Encryption enables developers to easily build encryption for individual fields (such as social security numbers and credit cards) that are not critical to analysis but are a required component of reports and output into the MongoDB environment.
  • Vormetric Single Platform for Data Protection results in low cost of ownership, resource use and implementation for using these solutions with MongoDB

“Organizations are eager to use MongoDB to gain timely, meaningful insights and build deep customer relationships”, said Tina Stewart Vice President of Marketing for Vormetric. “With Vormetric, organizations gain the security controls needed to reap these benefits while protecting sensitive data within the environment against data breaches, meeting regulatory requirements and adhering to compliance mandates.”
