Zettaset Achieves Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification to Support Advanced Encryption for Data at Rest in OpenShift Environments

New XCrypt Container Encryption for Red Hat OpenShift Enables Transparent and High-Performance Software-Defined Encryption

SAN FRANCISCO – May 5, 2020 – Zettaset, a leading provider of software-defined encryption solutions, announced today that Zettaset XCrypt for OpenShift is now certified as a Red Hat OpenShift Operator, providing capabilities for the encryption of data stored in Red Hat OpenShift container environments.

The ubiquity of container adoption and Kubernetes across enterprise environments is on the rise. However, many organizations focus entirely on investing in technology that simply helps orchestrate container activity. This has created a significant opportunity for cybercriminals to capitalize on the lack of proper security protocols in place that can protect data stored in container environments. Zettaset’s software-defined solution offers high-performance encryption to transparently protect the data stored in containers, without the need for new hardware or specialized encryption expertise.

Red Hat OpenShift is the first enterprise Kubernetes offering that delivers a catalog of Operators and includes both Certified and community-supported Operators. Zettaset’s XCrypt Container Encryption for Red Hat OpenShift helps provide greater confidence to OpenShift users that they can focus on driving innovation quickly and at scale, rather than worrying about data security within containers and resulting data breaches.

“Zettaset is the only software-defined encryption solution that supports the protection of critical data stored in container environments,” said Tim Reilly, CEO of Zettaset. “As more and more enterprises leverage containers and Kubernetes to drive the shift to DevOps culture, IT teams need to ensure the security of data stored within containers. Zettaset XCrypt Container Encryption for Red Hat OpenShift provides organizations with this assurance, while aligning with existing and future digital transformation initiatives such as moves to hybrid- and multi-cloud infrastructures, the adoption of cloud-native applications and more. We believe encryption is essential to any transition from DevOps to DevSecOps. Red Hat recognizes the importance of encryption in OpenShift and the necessity to extend this protection across the hybrid cloud.”

Zettaset provides high-performance transparent data at rest and data in motion encryption and enterprise key management for a variety of environments including Kubernetes platforms like OpenShift and Docker. Its XCrypt Container Encryption solution supports even the most demanding deployment requirements across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.

“Data security is top of mind for nearly every organization and having a range of options to more reliably and efficiently safeguard critical data and systems is a key need for cloud-native platforms,” said Julio Tapia, director, Cloud Platforms Ecosystem, Red Hat. “We’re pleased to have Zettaset join the Red Hat ecosystem and provide its XCrypt Container Encryption solution as a Kubernetes Operator certified for production environments on Red Hat OpenShift, enabling an encryption service designed to ‘just work’ across the cloud wherever OpenShift runs.”
