CloudBerry Now Supports AWS Key Management Service

Centralized Control of Customer-Created Encryption Keys makes CloudBerry Even More Compelling for Amazon S3 Users with Stringent Security Requirements

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – April 28, 2015: CloudBerry Lab™, a vendor of backup and management solutions for public cloud storage services, today announced that it now supports AWS Key Management Service in addition to its existing client and server side encryption (SSE) security capabilities. The AWS Key Management Service (KMS) will be supported for both CloudBerry Backup, which backs up data to Amazon S3 and restores it within minutes, and CloudBerry Explorer, which enables end-users to access, move and manage files across local storage and Amazon S3 buckets.

AWS Key Management Service (KMS) is a managed service that presents a single view into all of key usage in the end-user organization and makes it easy for end-users to create, rotate and control the encryption keys used to encrypt data. As result, AWS KMS hardens security and simplifies key management.

Having recently achieved Storage Competency Partner Status in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network, CloudBerry is fully committed to providing the most up-to-date support for Amazon S3. This ensures that any organization using CloudBerry Backup or Explorer to store or manage backups in the cloud is guaranteed full support for the very latest feature enhancements Amazon makes available for S3 users.

"Customers are rightly concerned about the security of the data they store in the cloud," said Alexey Serkov, CTO at CloudBerry Lab. "CloudBerry has always provided users with complete control over the keys that are the bedrock of data security – neither CloudBerry nor the cloud provider ever has access to customer data. Now, organizations have a backup and file management solution that fully supports AWS KMS, allowing them to leverage the latest security enhancements from Amazon to easily and quickly create, control and centrally manage encryption keys used to keep their data safe on S3."
