Saltycloud Announces the Migration of STACHE to Cloud
Enterprise Grade Encryption Key Management Solution Moves to AWS
Austin, TX: Today, Salty Cloud, PBC, a SaaS InfoSec company specializing in providing scalable security solutions to EDU and government sectors, announced the migration of STACHE to Amazon Web Services (AWS).
STACHE, an enterprise solution to securely store, share and escrow encryption keys and other sensitive credentials (eg, passwords, numbers, procedures, keys), was previously only available as a locally deployed application requiring an accompanying Hardware Security Module (HSM) appliance.
Migration of STACHE to AWS will allow for faster deployment and onboarding rather than locally installing and configuring software and hardware onsite. STACHE AWS instance leverages multiple layers of industry standard AES-256/SHA-256 keys to ensure data is fully encrypted at rest and during flight.
“We are really pleased to be leveraging Stache for our campus’ password management and escrow needs – and the fact that it runs completely within the AWS Cloud assures the resilience and scalability we require. Furthermore, Stache leverages the AWS Key management service, which provides a FIPS 140.2 compliant solution without the hassle of maintaining a local HSM device.” said Cam Beasley, Chief Information Security Officer at the University of Texas at Austin.
The University of Texas at Austin successfully completed its migration of STACHE to the AWS Cloud earlier this morning. All other STACHE customers are scheduled to migrate to cloud between now and mid September 2017.
