“We welcome Vormetric into our partner program. Vormetric’s solution represents an additional option of protection so that customers can take advantage of their ability to secure data at rest,” said Scott Collins, vice president, Global Alliances and Strategic Partnerships, Teradata.

Vormetric Protection for Teradata Database simplifies the process of employing column-level encryption in the Teradata Database across the Teradata Workload-Specific Platform Family. The product reduces complexity for developers by offering documented, standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs) and user-defined functions (UDFs) for encryption and key management to secure data-at-rest.

“This is the latest powerful and simply implemented data-at-rest security solution added to the Vormetric Data Security Platform,” said Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management for Vormetric. “Our single platform continues to extend to meet our customers’ data-at-rest security and compliance needs across the extended enterprise, enabling a data-centric security strategy that is consistent across the organization and saves time, money and resources.”

The Vormetric Data Security Platform has expanded over the last two years from transparent structured and unstructured data encryption with access controls, to also include application-level data encryption, data access audit logging, external encryption key management, tokenization with dynamic data masking and now protection for Teradata databases within a single infrastructure and management environment.
