Encrypt Couchbase

Data Security for Couchbase

If the data in your Couchbase Server is considered sensitive or may be subject to compliance regulations like HIPAA-HITECH, PCI-DSS or FIPS, it's critical that you protect it.  Gazzang for Couchbase offers a powerful, policy-driven solution that enables you to encrypt your data stored in Couchbase Server, and secure and manage your encryption keys. With Gazzang, data files in Couchbase Server are encrypted on disk. This ensures that your data is not compromised if your database is stolen, copied, lost, or otherwise improperly accessed.

Why encrypt your data in Couchbase Server?
Imagine that you’re building an online shopping app. Your app may store different kinds of information in Couchbase - customer names and physical addresses, email address, purchase patterns from stores, browsing patters from the web store or even geo location data for the physical location of the store. In this scenario, physical addresses combined with user credential information represent a significant risk – both against compliance regulations and data breach laws.

To mitigate these risks, you can use Gazzang zNcrypt™ to transparently encrypt your Couchbase data files on disk. Keys are secured on the software-based Gazzang zTrustee™ Key Server to protect against unauthorized access. There are no changes necessary to your app, storage or data. Your data remains secure and your app continues to enjoy the benefits of Couchbase Server.

Features of zNcrypt for Couchbase include:

  • Advanced Key Management - Stores keys separate from the encrypted data to ensure a data breach does not also result in the loss of the cryptographic key.

  • Transparent Data Encryption - Protects data at rest resulting in minimal performance impact. Requires no complex changes to databases, files, applications or storage.

  • Process Based Access Controls - Restricts access to specific processes rather than by OS user.

  • Encrypt and Decrypt Unstructured Data - Secures personally identifiable information, intellectual property, log files and any other sensitive data that could be considered damaging if exposed outside the business.

  • Automation Tools - Rapid distributed deployment from ten to thousands of nodes.

  • World-Class Support - Pivotal and Gazzang partnership offers enterprise support for your secure big data implementation

How to Steer Clear of an ePHI Data Breach

The final HIPAA Omnibus Rule is now in effect requiring organizations to perform, among other things, a four-step risk assessment of potential breaches of Protected Health Information (PHI). In this paper RISC Management presents information to help organizations understand what constitutes a breach and how best to protect regulated data such as ePHI. Learn how to successfully navigate the breach risk assessment requirements and minimize your changes of having to report a breach.

Gazzang describes the technique of data-at-rest encryption and key management as control mechanisms to help achieve compliance with HIPAA Rules, enhance data security and minimize organizational risk.
