Data Security & Encryption
System integrity and data security are major factors that all IT departments have to take seriously today. These issues impact the end user IT department or the VAR developing applications to sell in to his selected market. In all cases, a company's auditors will be asking searching questions.
jBASE has addressed all of these issues and functionality has been even further refined in jBASE 5 to deliver the best system integrity and data security features on the MultiValue database market today and certainly on par with many RDBMS products.
jBASE has always delivered a robust Transaction Journaling (TJ) product that has enabled companies to operate systems that can be recovered quickly from the lost or damaged file or the occasional system crash. For more complex systems, TJ includes the ability to deploy two phase commit application architectures and also fully embrace complete hot standby configurations.
Now with the introduction of jBASE Version 5 we offer the additional benefits of Dataguard. Dataguard introduces Checkpointing to Transaction Journaling. A checkpoint is a marker in the log at a point in time when there are no active transactions and there is complete system integrity. There are then some very significant benefits that result. Warmstart recovery is designed to enable a database to be returned to a stable, working position, following a power failure. Without this functionality it is not clear whether all transactions have been committed and therefore database integrity is impaired. An active jBASE system using Dataguard will recover and return to full operation following a power failure.
Many modern systems operate for extended hours and leave limited time for system backups. However full Online Backup functionality is available now with Dataguard to enable regular database backups to be performed on a live system. This functionality also enables file restoration on the live system as well.
As demand for data security and integrity continues to increase, organizations are beginning to encrypt critical data inside corporate databases. Industry requirements and the emergence of laws and regulations requiring data protection mean that private information such as medical records, social security and customer credit-card numbers, payroll/benefits data, driver’s license numbers and more need to be kept secure. Just because the doctor can view a patient’s medical records does not mean that they should be open to viewing by a different user (such as the receptionist) running an ad-hoc query. The optional jBASE DREM, Data at Rest Encryption Module provides the functionality to enable users to encrypt data without the requirement to change any application code.
