Zettaset Releases XCrypt Container Encryption for Docker Enterprise from Mirantis

Zettaset and Mirantis are partnering to provide a first-of-its-kind, software only encryption solution that protects containers from data theft in any physical or virtual environment. Zettaset XCrypt Container Encryption enables organizations running Docker Enterprise environments to seamlessly secure data within containers through encryption with little-to-no impact on performance or business velocity.

The enterprise adoption of containers continues to grow exponentially. The technology’s significant market traction is due in large part to the countless benefits containers provide – including portability, performance, scalability and more. While adoption is on the rise, many organizations have expressed the hesitancy of implementation due to security-related concerns, such as the ability to successfully secure data stored within container environments. In fact, a recent survey from StackRox found that 94 percent of respondents have experienced security incidents in their container environments in the past 12 months.

Zettaset XCrypt Container Encryption built for Docker Enterprise infrastructure functions with near-zero latency, the new solution supports even the most demanding deployment requirements across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. The software-defined solution offers high-performance encryption to transparently protect containers, without the need for new hardware or specialized encryption expertise. To ensure the most comprehensive encryption for organizations leveraging Docker Enterprise to enable enterprise-grade container orchestration, Zettaset XCrypt Container encryption offers developers:

  • Transparent integration into container software through Zettaset’s volume driver;
  • Required services running in containers, including key manager, certificate authority and license server;
  • The automated management of host storage;
  • A dedicated volume group that is allocated for each container volume;
  • Container volumes that are cryptographically tied to containers.

Zettaset’s software-defined encryption solution is setting the standard for data security within today’s enterprise environments. As digital transformation initiatives increase, DevOps plays an essential role for any organization’s success in this pursuit, and containers are critical for executing on these initiatives. With the ability to encrypt sensitive data stored within containers, organizations regardless of size, can operate with little-to-no impact on performance and most importantly, prioritize security without sacrificing agility or overall innovation.
