You don’t get many days like this one, today we are officially launching not one, but two of our new vendor signings!

Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that we are moving away from our focused portfolio to a more broadline approach, these vendors both offer technology solutions which are compelling in their own right, and which also complement our existing offerings beautifully. They more than meet the Ethos’ brief of helping organisations create policy-defined infrastructures which are both feature rich and highly secure, whilst also being simple, flexible, and efficient.

First off, we have a pioneer and global leader in Enterprise Data Automation – Io-Tahoe. Io-Tahoe’s platform creates “Smart Data” ready for DataOps, robotic process automation, AI and digital transformation, empowering Knowledge Workers to trust their data and achieve more.

Their unique Smart Data Discovery and Data Catalog solutions make it simple for organisations to automatically discover and search all their enterprise data. The easy to use platform provides everyone with the ability to derive insights from their data.

Discover and Search All Your Enterprise Data - Automatically discover and search data relationships across the enterprise – the known, and even unknown ‘dark data’ for greater control and visibility of the data landscape.

Automate Your Data Governance - Io-Tahoe's advanced technology and machine learning algorithms allow organizations to quickly detect data relationships in structured, semi-structured and some unstructured formats.

Analyse All the Data; More Than The Metadata - Trust your data and its insights by going beyond the metadata. Io-Tahoe analyses all the data rather than just the metadata, providing you with the absolute truth.

Work Across A Variety of Data Sources – platform agnostic Io-Tahoe enables organizations to discover and search data across a complex enterprise in a variety of data sources – relational data stores, data warehouses, data lakes and the cloud, helping organizations break down traditional silos.

For more information on how Io-Tahoe can help organisations create a “Smart Data Lifecycle” a great place to start would be a recent theCUBE CrowdChat featuring Lester Waters (CTO, Io-Tahoe), Patrick Smith (Field CTO, Pure Storage), Ezat Dayeh, (SE Manager UK&I, Cohesity) and our very own Adam Worthington (CTO, Ethos Technology); the event can be viewed here.

Next up we have the pioneers of robust, simple and scalable Multi-Cloud Data Security – Fortanix. Traditional approaches to encryption key management like Hardware Security Modules (HSM) have seen little development in the last 40 years, and their limitations are glaringly obvious in this world of Hybrid/Multi/Edge-Cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). Fortanix unique Self-Defending Key Management Service (KMS) rips up the rule book, offering HSM-grade security with software-defined security. Fortanix Self-Defending KMS is the world's first cloud solution secured with Intel® SGX. With Fortanix Self-Defending KMS, you can securely generate, store, and use cryptographic keys and certificates, as well as secrets, such as passwords, API keys, tokens, or any blob of data.

Fortanix Self-Defending KMS, The World’s First Unified Key Management Platform Built ON HSM-Grade Security – Secure any KMS use case including TDE, Storage Multi-cloud and Blockchain; delivers Tokenisation, Secrets Management and HSM; Central management, audit, and control. Secured with Intel SGX, built for cloud scale/resiliency, reduce threats, and consolidate costs. ​

Virtually Impenetrable Security to Your Data, Keys and Secrets - Secured with Intel® SGX and built using Fortanix's patented Runtime Encryption® Technology, Fortanix Self-Defending KMS runs every operation in HSM-grade security, ensuring complete control over your keys, data and secrets. Comprehensive audit logs provide you insight into how secrets are being used, helping you meet compliance. ​

Simple Control of, And Visibility Into, Your Key Management Operations - Fortanix Self-Defending KMS provides a centralized web-based UI with enterprise level access controls and single sign-on support. Your business-critical applications and containers can integrate with Fortanix Self-Defending KMS using traditional cryptographic interfaces (PKCS#11, KMIP and more) or its native RESTful interface.

Scale Horizontally and Geographically As Your Demand For Managing Your Keys and Secrets Increase – Scale as needs dictate while providing automated load-balancing, fault-tolerance, disaster recovery, and high availability. Fortanix Self-Defending KMS can be deployed globally for private, hybrid and/or multi-cloud environments.

That’s just Self-Defending KMS, we haven’t even mentioned their game-changing Confidential Computing Solution, powered by the Fortanix Enclave Manager!

We’re incredibly proud and excited to add both Io-Tahoe and Fortanix to the Ethos family. As you may appreciate it’s difficult to get the true value of disruptive technologies across in a few words; as always, if you would like any more information on these, our other solutions, or just to explore “better” ways of doing things in general, then please don’t hesitate to reach out.
