AsterionDB briefed the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) on capabilities of the AsterionDB Zero-Trust Data Security Platform on July 6th, 2023.
Watch the video recording of this presentation. Its an hour-an-a-half long and full of information. We start off with a high level introduction and then go deeper in with a discussion of architecture features and several demonstrations of our capabilities.
This document details how closely AsterionDB’s design philosophy and implementation aligns with the DoD’s Cybersecurity Reference Architecture
AsterionDB received the honor and opportunity to demonstrate the AsterionDB Zero-Trust Software Development Platform to the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency on February 9th, 2023.
During the presentation we gave an overview of how we implement key Zero-Trust goals
The contemporary file system’s organization traces its roots back to the early days of electronic computing, organized similar to the physical filing system it was intended to replace. The physical location of a file is a leaf in a hierarchical tree structure. Security is applied at the level of the container and enforced, typically, through the honor system.
“Evolve and adapt or die. It’s that simple. Your legacy applications and IT infrastructure will not be easily retrofitted to match today’s security requirements,” he said. “Having a unified approach to IT asset management and security for both cloud and on-premises systems is where you need to be headed.”
According to Steve Guilford (LinkedIn: Steven Guilford), CEO of AsterionDB, “Offloading network and security services to a dedicated DPU has distinct advantages in the AsterionDB architecture. We turn middle-tier devices into elastic security isolation components that focus specifically on networking requirements without any concern for data or business logic. This allows for the implementation of a generic API interface to centralized resources in the AsterionDB architecture. Generic APIs typically reveal a single entry-point. This single entry point thusly does not reveal any information to an infiltrator, which obviously greatly enhances security.”
A cloud-first approach “allows companies to focus on the business dynamics that dictate when and by how much enterprise applications need to scale,” says Steve Guilford, CEO of AsterionDB. “What could be worse than to plan for an event that requires the scaling of an application’s infrastructure only to have it all fall flat on its face when the time comes?”
Oracle recently held a customer facing webinar featuring cyber security oriented members of the Oracle for Startups program. Watch this brief video segment where Steve Guilford, AsterionDB’s CEO, talks about the unique capabilities of AsterionDB, The Converged Computing Platform.
“The ultimate benefit of being part of Oracle for Startups is the opportunity for direct customer introductions and engagements. This is already paying off for AsterionDB,” said Steven Guilford, Founder and CEO/CTO of AsterionDB.
