anfesito Selects Gazzang ezNcrypt for Data Security

Gazzang ezNcrypt can assist customers in ensuring the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their business information. This includes sensitive customer data and proprietary intellectual property. For any application running on Linux, ezNcrypt Flex protects, encrypts and manages the cryptographic keys.

Patent-pending Access Control Lists (ACL) provides the company with the power to create simple, custom rules that provide a variety of benefits to customers.

The company recently announced that anfesito, a German startup billed as the "Mint.com of Europe,” selected Gazzang to improve its SaaS (News - Alert) solutions. Becoming the latest SaaS provider to install data encryption and key management solutions from Gazzang, anfesito has opted for Gazzang zNcrypt to secure customer data related to anfesito's cloud-based financial services application.

anfesito selected Gazzang zNcrypt to offer data encryption and advanced key management after an extensive, competitive review. According to the company, Gazzang zNcrypt met the security demands of its SaaS-based financial services application.

An important benefit was the ability to host anfesito's encryption keys away from sensitive user data and offer reliable key retrieval and availability with minimal performance impact.

“SaaS providers are focused on delivering high-value, high-volume solutions that increase business efficiency without exposing customers to greater security risks," said Larry Warnock, CEO at Gazzang. "Gazzang zNcrypt is purpose-built to integrate seamlessly with SaaS environments, so providers can deliver the benefits of enhanced data security without needless cost or downtime. This is the right solution for a company like anfesito, that places such a high value on data security and customer trust.”

Gazzang recently released zEscrow, a free service that allows Ubuntu (News - Alert) desktop users to back up and recover randomly produced keys that safeguard Ubuntu encrypted home directories. zEscrow is the latest addition to the Gazzang family of data encryption and key management solutions, and is available immediately in the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS archive and demonstrated at this week's Ubuntu Developer Summit.
