PKI appliance goes for selective security
Data security company Ingrian Networks launched a PKI (public key infrastructure) appliance on Thursday that can encrypt selected data stored in an application or a database.
Enterprises traditionally spend a significant amount of their resources securing the network perimeter, despite the fact, noted by analysts and security experts, that a majority of attacks originate from within networks. Ingrian's product takes a different tack, allowing small sections of application or database information to be hidden from all unauthorised users, whether within or outside the network.
