Cryptsoft Supports Open Standards by Becoming OASIS Foundational Sponsor
18 December 2015 — The OASIS international open standards consortium welcomes Cryptsoft, a provider of cryptographic and enterprise key management solutions, as its newest Foundational Sponsor. Cryptsoft joins IBM and Microsoft in supporting the mission of OASIS at the highest level.
"Cryptsoft is a true OASIS success story," said Laurent Liscia, CEO and executive director of OASIS. "When Cryptsoft joined our organization five years ago, they quickly took on a leadership role, shepherding technical development, promoting interoperability, and sharing ideas with other members. They were instrumental in the growth of several major security standards, and in the process, their company grew to become a leader in the cryptographic market."
Cryptsoft applies its expertise in cryptographic and enterprise key management technologies, helping to drive several OASIS standards initiatives, including the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) Technical Committee and the Public-Key Cryptography Standard #11 (PKCS#11) Technical Committee.
"As a major OEM technology supplier, Cryptsoft is aware that the OASIS KMIP and PKCS #11 standards are the preferred key management and cryptographic capability foundations for enterprise data security implementations. Major changes in the enterprise storage and security trust landscape have significantly increased demand for interoperable open standards-based solutions that facilitate management insight and control of data and cryptographic devices. Developing conformant solutions under the banner of OASIS has helped to ensure that these demands are verifiably and securely met without sacrificing any interoperability," said Tim Hudson, CTO & Technical Director at Cryptsoft.
"OASIS is a critical body for developing and maintaining standards in the ever changing security field and Cryptsoft looks forward to increasing our involvement in appropriate technical committees to drive clear standards for implementing relevant security in tomorrow’s enterprises," said Greg Scott, CEO at Cryptsoft.
