Advanced data assurance technologies from Kinamik are a perfect fit for security and compliance in Cloud environments.
Cloud Computing holds considerable promise as a major new direction in technology that most organizations will follow within the next few years. However, trust, transparency and accountability requirements are seen as major inhibitors to adoption for organizations in highly regulated sectors such as Government, Financial Services, Healthcare and Banking. With data continuously flowing in and out of the physical boundaries of organizations -and with these boundaries blurring more and more every day- when sensitive a data are processed or stored, organizations are forced to have “blind trust” in Cloud providers and their employees and accept that they are applying enough security measures to protect data. And since anybody within each provider (or their subsequent providers) can access this stored data, compliance, governance and evidentiary concerns surface: how can providers truly demonstrate that laws, regulations and security guidelines are being strictly adhered to?
Simply put, “good enough” security in the cloud is not good enough anymore.
Kinamik’s advanced data assurance technologies are seamlessly deployed within Cloud environments (SaaS, PaaS and IaaS), creating an independent “always-on” secure repository, analogue to a flight data recorder. By rendering each data element in the cloud as tamper-evident, Kinamik creates an immutable register that provides for audit by any authorized user (auditors, providers or end users). Data integrity technologies provided by Kinamik deliver trustworthy, independent and irrefutable information in cloud environments. This data is always available for review by applications and data owners, thereby improving operational efficiencies and assisting with forensics and digital evidence requirements in these environments.
