Google Introduces New Key Management Service in Its Beta Version Cloud Platform

This new key management service will help regulate industries especially like health care and banking sectors. Google Inc. is well known technologies industry in the world wide. Google announced that It is launching a new key management system in its beta launching of cloud platform that will help various enterprises, especially healthcare and banking industries. Using this news service Industries will be able to create, use, rotate and destroy their encryption keys throughout the cloud. Google competently named the service as Google cloud key management service or cloud KMS now available as beta in Google selected countries list.

The traditional industries and enterprises managed their encryption keys on-premise, now as the industries intent is growing towards the cloud day by day, so all the enterprises are thinking about the managing their keys in the cloud. Google has already launched the very basic version of cloud KMS for its customers who wants to use their own encryption keys.

Maya Kaczorowski, the product manager at Google. She told, that as you remember the Google is already encrypting all the data on its platform, but if any enterprise or company wants to control over the encryption key and its management then the new beta launching is suitable options for those companies and enterprises.

Maya Kaczorowski also wrote on its blog post: “As an alternative to custom-built or ad-hoc key management systems, which are difficult to scale and maintain, Cloud KMS makes it easy to keep your keys safe.”

Google Cloud KMS users can also store some other secrets such as O-Auth tokens, service credentials configurations, etc. Google cloud KMS is also aware you if any fraud detection reveals regarding the damaging of your secure data.

Maya Kaczorowski added: “We want to be able to be in the serving path of our customers, We want to enable people to encrypt things they were not able to before.”

Google will charge the customers on the base on the number of encryption keys user has stored. The key charges are very reasonable numbers as ($0.06 per active key for a month)  and how often the key used, it is also matters as ($0.03 per key usage for 10,000 operations).

Maya Kaczorowski also told that the Google has no any issue regarding handling of keys and users’ secrets. Google has very suitable architecture to easily manage and handle as much as keys and secrets have. She said: “From the get-go, we architected it to allow customers to use as many keys as they want to”.

VMware Joins Open-O Project to Adopt Industry Advances

VMware works in Open-O from the both governing board and technical steering to continuously improving and innovating the open standard-based orchestration. VMware Inc, is a one of the leading industry in cloud computing based products. It enables their customers to accelerate their digital transformation. VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture and variety of solutions for the data centers, mobility and security enable all types of enterprises to work in healthy and compatible environment.

VMware announced on 5 December, 2016 at Palo Alto – CA, that the company has started a partnership with Open-O, It is an open source project that is hosted and maintained by the Linux Foundation that helps and enables all the leading telecommunications companies, cloud operators and end-to-end services orchestration to use the NFV infrastructure (network functions virtualization) as well as the SDN and legacy networks. VMware joined as a platinum member so he is merely available for both functions of the project that includes the governing body and technical steering with marketing committees. This function is quite better for Open-O project to continually grow in the market.

Marc Cohn, Executive Director, OPEN-O and vice president, network strategy, The Linux Foundation. Said: “The OPEN-O Project is representative of the industry movement towards adoption and production deployment of open standards-based orchestration to enable operators to capitalize on NFV and SDN architecture, Operators participating in OPEN-O feature a subscriber base in excess of a billion mobile, residential and business users. With the addition of leading NFV vendors such as VMware, we believe OPEN-O will successfully deliver the abstraction needed to deliver complex services over SDN and NFV infrastructures as well as legacy networks.”

There are 400+ CSPs and Telco companies working globally, many of those companies are looking for a platform that is more faster, reliable, and less expensive to launch their new and innovative services. CSPs and telcos are looking for a converged platform where they can get the various services including, combines network, cloud, mobility, and IT architecture. Open-O project helps the enterprise users to significantly improve the sevices velocity, agility, and quality to generate more revenues. It also reduces the overall costs simultaneously. There are several technology hubs are participating in this Linux based open source project, including, Hong Kong Telecom, China Telecom, China Mobile.

Gabriele Di Piazza, vice president of solutions, the Telco NFV Group at VMware said: “Implementing NFV requires a robust NFV infrastructure, and the agility provided by the type of comprehensive NFV and multi-cloud orchestration the OPEN-O Project promises to deliver, Customers will ultimately choose the path that best helps them meet their digital transformation objectives, and by joining OPEN-O, VMware is extending its position as a major player in defining the evolution and adoption of NFV by Telcos and communications service providers.”

CloudPassage Inc Launches Python SDK for Halo® Platform

Python SDK includes many leverage tools such as libraries, documentations and pre-written sample codes that enable users to easily integrate the Halo in some other tools and applications. CloudPassage is a famous for its leading brand Halo. It is only broadly automated platform that is scalable, portable, efficient, on-demand security and compliance. It provides instantaneous visibility and nonstop security for the servers of any combination in the both private and public cloud data centers.

CloudPassage announced Python SDK for its leading product Halo on 20 December, 2016. Halo is a CloudPassage’s award-winning fully automated security platform that is delivered as Software as a service. This release includes many leverage tools within it includes documentations, libraries and sample code that allows users to integrate Halo platform in some other applications and tools easily and efficiently by just adding a few lines of code in the module.

Halo API utilities provide sufficient tools, using those tools any enterprise customers minimize the errors. It basically automates the remediation, create custom dashboards, and also adds security events in the workflow that help more to the users.

Sami Laine, principal technologist, CloudPassage, said: “With this new release, CloudPassage has made state-of-the-art automated security and compliance solutions more accessible than ever before, Halo was already capable of delivering secure innovation and deployment. The Python SDK makes it even easier for developers to integrate the security to their infrastructure.”

Python SDK helps programmers to develop custom integration more easily and efficiently without managing the tradition underlying communication infrastructure. This SDK prepares in the many high-fraction elements for using this Halo API such as authentication, token security renewal, and pagination. This is also helpful in making the API accessible for non-expert developers or users. And the final thing about the SDK is that it’s available in open-source nature. The open-source means any programmer who wants to modify the SDK for personal or company’s needs, he can freely modify the software with its needs.

Python SDK effectively troubleshoot and allows many developers to work together with the integration efforts. All the Halo related and supported tools ones like the Halo Event Connector, are used as standardized for the Halo Python SDK.
