The Kinamik Secure Audit Vault is a software solution that centralizes and preserves sensitive data. By applying a “digital fingerprint” to the secured records, it makes them tamper-evident and provides proof that the sealed data has not been manipulated from the moment of its creation.
Many factors are currently affecting the trust organizations place on their data: need for better governance, risks associated to the economic downturn such as people leaving the organization, the growing use of outsourced services and third parties accessing company data, the trend towards cloud computing and virtualization and a natural growth in the amount of existing data to be managed. The resulting combination of these factors put the data at a high risk of being tampered.
The Kinamik Secure Audit Vault helps organizations in regaining the trustworthiness of their data. Using internationally-recognized standard cryptographic algorithms and owned intellectual property, it can be integrated in virtually any IT environment. Regardless where sensitive data is generated, Kinamik Secure Audit Vault’s agents collect them in real-time and securely send them to the integrity processing module. The sensitive data is secured at the highest level of detail –for example, each line in an audit trail, each record for a database, etc. The processed data is centralized for later reviewing and analysis, kept secured independently but within the organization, never leaving the organization's walls. For the latest flavor of the Kinamik Secure Audit Vault, see what the current version has to offer.
The Kinamik Secure Audit Vault is comprised of three modules:
1. kFeeds: Small agents that collect in real-time sensitive data from various sources, and send them to the centralized vault.
2. kSecure: Kinamik Secure Audit Vault module that adds integrity at the highest granular level. It performs high-speed timestamping and hashing of this sensitive data, with minimal overhead and process performance impact. Strong encryption is also provided by this component to guarantee data confidentiality.
3. kAuditor: Web-based module that allow auditors to perform powerful searches on the preserved data while verifying the correctness of information. It incorporates business intelligence capabilities such as regular expression search, data integrity validation and reporting using its interface or standard market-leading tools (Jasper Reports, Crystal Reports, etc), and exporting capabilities.
