Almost every organization you speak to these days has a cloud-first strategy, and if they don’t today, they will soon. They all want the agility of the cloud, the automation it can bring, and they want to focus on their business – not the plumbing. However, when it comes to large enterprises and mission-critical tasks, security has been a barrier for cloud adoption.
We recognized this challenge several years ago and began a concerted effort to remove those barriers by taking our industry-leading security model to an even higher level. Customers are relying on our advanced security capabilities to give them the assurance they need to migrate some of the most complex and sensitive workloads in the world to the cloud. For example, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is now running the Affordable Care Act (ACA) program completely in the cloud. When you think about the sorts of data managed by that system, you realize just how strict the security requirements must be.
But we didn’t stop there. The newest release of our multi-model database, MarkLogic 10, adds even more security capabilities. But an ultra-secure database isn’t enough. The MarkLogic Data Hub Service, powered by MarkLogic 10, secures your entire data integration platform in unique ways:
With these improvements, we’ll help drive enterprise workloads to the cloud faster than ever and set the standard for what enterprises demand from database and cloud services technologies. Enterprises may even have better security in the cloud than on-premise because of the extra level of cloud security that occurs because fixes are more centrally administered, often more quickly, than with on-premise solutions. As IDC states, while security is “often cited as the leading obstacle to cloud implementations, increasingly some customers see cloud as more secure, cost-effective, and customer responsive than in-house capabilities.”
With our enhanced products now in the market, our next step is to achieve the highest levels of external security certifications for them. We don’t design our products simply to meet certification requirements so we can check a box somewhere. We design them to meet the requirements of enterprise customers. In our mind, that means going beyond what those certifications require and what is offered by competing services. We opted for enhanced security from the start and every choice we’ve made since then has sprung from that position.
Within the next few months, MarkLogic expects to achieve the following certifications, including:
We tend to think that these sorts of certifications are targeted towards regulated industries, but we believe that every industry today is in fact regulated. If the government isn’t regulating the industry directly—as is the case with health care, finance, and insurance—market forces are. And what the market requires, by way of customers and consumers, is the very best data security as companies pursue their digital transformations. This is exactly what the MarkLogic Data Hub Service delivers.
