A new update to the NoSQL database adds Cryptsoft technology

The database landscape is much more diverse than it once was, thanks in large part to big data, and on Tuesday, one of today's newer contenders unveiled an upcoming release featuring a major boost in security.

Version 9 of MarkLogic's namesake NoSQL database will be available at the end of this year, and one of its key new features is the inclusion of Cryptsoft’s KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol) technology.

MarkLogic has placed its bets on companies' need to integrate data from dispersed enterprise silos -- a task that has often required the use of so-called ETL tools to extract, transform and load data into a traditional relational database. Aiming to offer an alternative approach, MarkLogic's technology combines the flexibility, scalability, and agility of NoSQL with enterprise-hardened features like government-grade security and high availability, it says.

Now coming up in the next generation of the software will be a variety of improvements in data integration, manageability and security, the company says, but certainly most notable among them is the addition of Cryptsoft’s KMIP.

Data is frequently protected while in transit between consumers and businesses, MarkLogic notes, but the same isn't always true when data is at rest within the business because of a variety of challenges associated with that task. That's where Cryptsoft's technology could make a difference.

Rather than grappling with multiple key management tools, MarkLogic 9 users will be able to tap Cryptsoft’s embedded Key Management SDKs to manage data security from across the enterprise using a comprehensive, standards-compliant KMIP toolkit.

KMIP is developed through the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS). Earlier this year, MarkLogic also achieved Common Criteria security certification.

MarkLogic 9 is scheduled to be generally available in December.
