Marriott Hit by Starwood Hack That Ranks Among Biggest Ever

Another day, another massive data breach. With 500 million guests affected, the Marriott hack is among largest in history. Powerful enterprise-grade encryption key management is needed more than ever. https://yhoo.it/2QqGQpd #Marriott #DataBreach #KeyOrchestration

The hack affects some 500 million guests, and for about 327 million of them, the data included passport numbers, emails and mailing addresses, Marriott said. The Marriott hack may rank only below Yahoo as one of the biggest of personal data, when 3 billion users were exposed to a 2013 security breac...

Did you know that the genesis for Key Orchestration began on the battlefield? While taking enemy fire in Afghanistan, one of our founders was attempting the arduous, manual process of re-keying the encryption on his military radios. The circumstances made him realize, “there must be a better way…” Now we're taking this idea from the battlefield to the world to secure our most precious assets. Today we honor all the men an women who have risked their lives to make us and the world a safer place. We salute you.

General information

Key Orchestration™ (KO) is an advanced, centralized encryption key management ecosystem that automates the key lifecycle across the entire enterprise with groundbreaking precision and speed. KO leverages Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP), Public Key Cryptography Standards #11 (PKCS#11), and Common Event Format (CEF) as standards-based approaches for key management. The KMIP protocol extends Key Orchestration's ability to provide hardware solutions validated up to FIPs 140-2 level 3 and a FIPS 140-2 compliant virtual solution. Fully extensible, its ability to expand capability while supporting existing services enables Key Orchestration to append new technologies and services while maintaining a highly interoperable and secure environment. Mandatory access controls through positional security and policy, and discretionary access controls through KMIP grouping allowing the Key Orchestration server to provide secure key lifecycle from the data center to the tactical edge. Capacity to support hundreds of millions of keys while supporting mobile adhoc networking, tactical communications, and file or object-level encryption positions the Fornetix Key Orchestration™ in a class unsurpassed by any other KMS solution on the market.
