Gazzang Unveils Image-Level Security Solutions for AWS Public Cloud Environments

Gazzang announced the availability of a set of preconfigured Amazon Machine Images (AMI) that allow users to launch encrypted and locked-down public cloud instances from the AWS management console, or automatically via Amazon Elastic Beanstalk. The new Gazzang CloudEncrypt(TM) solutions were developed to help organizations move sensitive workloads into the public cloud and grow their environments as business demands warrant, all while having the confidence that the data and applications are secure and protected against unauthorized access. The products are now available worldwide from Gazzang, with a few clicks, AWS users can launch a secure Ubuntu image and select from a variety of databases including MongoDB, MySQL and PostgreSQL (with Apache Hadoop and Cassandra coming soon). Each image contains the exact same security configurations at boot time to make it easier for a user to spin up new instances and add them to the existing cluster. Preconfigured security includes the high-performance transparent data-at-rest encryption and key management to secure database files, configuration and log files, directories and amazon elastic block storage (Amazon EBS) volumes, access controls and Linux firewall settings that are preset to allow only certain approved processes to access encrypted data, Java APIs that enable users to encrypt and decrypt data moving into and out of Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Glacier, settings that require HTTPS, close unused ports, shut down unnecessary,services and delete data upon virtual machine termination. AWS users can auto-scale their cloud without compromising on data security. Each new instance deployed with Gazzang CloudEncrypt for Amazon Elastic Beanstalk will be wrapped with Gazzang security applied automatically. Gazzang is bringing its unique approach to cloud security to enable organizations to deploy secure, large-scale compute clusters on Amazon EC2 using StarCluster. Now research organizations can run sensitive workloads -- including ones in HIPAA scope, in the public cloud. In addition to the security features resident in Gazzang CloudEncrypt for Amazon EC2, CloudEncrypt for StarCluster includes master node encryption, slave node encryption and GlusterFS encrypted secure share.
