Penta Security Systems, Eventi Telematici to bring encryption to healthcare

June 28, 2017

Penta Security Systems Inc., a Korean information technology security firm and Eventi Telematici, an Italian software solution provider, have established a strategic partnership to combine MyDiamo’s column level database with their existing line of cloud and on-premise solutions.

In light of the recent European hackings that have affected major health organizations, reviewing safeguarding sensitive medical data is very important. As healthcare institutions hold databases storing medical records of millions of patients, a database encryption solution is needed to protect this confidential data at all the times.

Furthermore, regulatory laws now require corporations and organizations to strengthen data protection, which is the case with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). Penta Security Systems addresses the requirements by offering database encryption solutions that work in various types of environments. With a large majority of organizations utilizing open source database management systems (DBMS), MyDiamo has been specially designed to serve as a safe and reliable DBMS encryption solution for open source database environments.

This partnership will provide Eventi Telematici with the opportunity to bundle MyDiamo with its solutions to be sold to clients. The advantages to MyDiamo are many; as one of the few encryption solutions for open source DBMS such as MySQL, MariaDB, and PostgreSQL, MyDiamo offers column-level encryption, which allows end users to selectively encrypt columns in databases. It provides access control and separate encryption keys for each encrypted column. This partial encryption capability known as granular encryption enables user-specific control on encrypted column values rather than encrypting entire databases.
