Enable post-compromise data protection with MariaDB and Virgil Security’s PureKit

MariaDB deployments hold vast amounts of sensitive data such as intellectual property, state secrets, healthcare and financial records. HIPAA, GDPR and other government regulations require even more stringent protections and disclosures. Achieving post-compromise protection is seen as a necessary new tool available to DevOps teams.

At the first MariaDB Day in Brussels on February 2nd, Virgil Security’s CTO and co-founder Dmitry Dain presented a MariaDB demo based on the Virgil PureKit security framework that can protect stored passwords, PII and any other sensitive data even if the database had been breached – making it worthless to the attacker in the face of offline attacks (read more about security benefits in this blog post).

In this session, Dmitry Dain presents the Virgil PureKit security toolkit which protects passwords and data from being decrypted even if the database itself is compromised.
