Ockam Tool Ensures Applications Created Trust Data

The ability to build applications that move data across complex, variable and hostile networks is essential for developers who want to create robust and reliable apps that can operate in any network environment. (Especially in today’s digital landscape.)

Applications that move data across such networks enable seamless communication between different devices, systems and platforms. Also, in today's world (where cyber threats are more sophisticated and prevalent), applications that move data across hostile networks can do so securely, using encryption and other security measures to protect the data being transmitted.

Ensuring that applications have secure, authenticated and private connections to data is essential for businesses that want to protect sensitive information, comply with regulations, maintain business continuity and build trust with customers.

And enterprise developers now have the ability to build apps that can trust data-in-motion with end-to-end data integrity and authenticity due to the availability of Ockam’s new offering, Ockam Orchestrator.

Ockam is a suite of tools, programming libraries and managed cloud services. The general availability of Orchestrator means developers leverage new features and functionality to help leverage Ockam's suite of tools and programming libraries to orchestrate end-to-end encryption, mutual authentication, key management, credential management and authorization policy enforcement – all at massive scale.

The Orchestrator platform benefits enterprises and developers by building trust into application data as it flows between data centers and through the queues, caches, gateways and brokers along the data path. It facilitates secure-by-design communication, making eavesdropping or data tampering impossible.

Additionally, Orchestrator provides a managed cloud service, making it simple to build scalable connected systems and adopt security best practices, including securely managing identities, cryptographic keys and credentials for entities such as devices, people, assets and services.

"It's no secret in today's landscape that trust remains at the forefront of every business leader's agenda," said Matthew Gregory, Ockam CEO. "Ockam Orchestrator's suite of developer tools allows companies to create apps that are secure-by-design and that Build Trust into the foundation of every data security posture."

The launch of Orchestrator positions Ockam as one of the forefront providers of secure tools needed to create applications that can trust data.
