OpenText Cybersecurity Achieves Security Competency Status with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Data Protection Category

by   in Cybersecurity

We are excited to share that OpenText Cybersecurity has achieved security competency status with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in data protection category for its flagship OpenText Voltage SecureData.

This designation recognizes AWS endorsement of Voltage SecureData in empowering AWS customers to gain consistent and secure protection of their data residing on premises or in hybrid cloud environments.

Voltage SecureData is an enterprise-grade cloud-native data protection offering that enables the deployment of data security solutions within business applications in the cloud. Voltage SecureData enables enterprises to keep their data always protected while being moved to the cloud, in transit, at rest, or in use.

Voltage SecureData integrates with Amazon Redshift, AWS’ fully managed, scalable cloud data warehouse, enabling customers the benefits of Voltage data protection as they migrate from often siloed, on-prem databases to cloud native and open-source database solutions on AWS. Voltage SecureData integrates as well with Amazon Macie. Customers on AWS utilize Amazon Macie for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to discover sensitive and high-value data within Amazon S3 object storage, taking advantage of the dashboards and alerts that Amazon Macie provides to gain visibility into how this data is being stored, accessed, or moved. This enables customers using AWS, and storing sensitive data on AWS Object Storage service such as S3, to automate the end-to-end process from discovery, classification, reporting and risk remediation

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify consulting and technology partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

Achieving AWS Security Competency status differentiates OpenText Cybersecurity as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized software designed to help enterprises adopt, develop, and deploy complex security projects on AWS. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

“This was an important step in helping us ensure that our customers are supported throughout their cloud transformation journey,” said Tim Sedlack, Director of Product Management, OpenText Voltage. “We have worked diligently with AWS to integrate a number of key features that we feel will make OpenText Voltage SecureData one of the most sought-after solutions in protecting sensitive data no matter where and how it is stored or used.”

Learn how one of our customers, a Major Financial Services Company sought Voltage SecureData to successfully protect confidential data wherever it flows while expanding analytics capabilities for deeper business insights and using AWS cloud capabilities. In another use case with Epicor, Voltage Secure Data was put in production within the Epicor cloud-based payments gateway hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS) across six fully redundant AWS availability zones in three different regions. ‘Now that it’s up and running, we haven’t needed any further tuning or rework. SecureData Payments folded in seamlessly with our standard operations profile’, said Bill Wilson, executive vice president, product development at Epicor.
