New York—July 23, 2013—10gen, the MongoDB company, and Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced an integrated solution that extends the security of MongoDB. Some of the most demanding businesses depend on MongoDB and Red Hat technologies to increase their efficiency and protect their infrastructure.
10gen and Red Hat have integrated MongoDB’s security management capabilities with the Identity Management features included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. As a result, IT departments now have access to centralized user, password and certificate management, and are empowered to provide secure MongoDB deployments that are tightly integrated into their back office infrastructure.
Red Hat includes standards-based identity management in Red Hat Enterprise Linux to centrally manage individual identities and their authentication, authorization and privileges/permissions to increase the security of customer systems and help to ensure that the right people have access to the right information when they need it.
“By integrating MongoDB with Red Hat’s proven security infrastructure, we are adding an additional layer of protection on top of MongoDB, which is important to many of our customers, particularly within financial services and the federal government,” said Max Schireson, CEO at 10gen. “10gen’s collaboration with Red Hat is a nice step forward for our customers, company and the overall NoSQL community.”
“Identity and authentication are complex problems and we’re pleased to collaborate with 10gen to bring the Identity Management capabilities within Red Hat Enterprise Linux to MongoDB,” said Jim Totton, Vice President and General Manager, Platform, Red Hat. “With our Identity Management capabilities, MongoDB users are offered additional assurance that the right users get access to systems, data, and applications quickly and securely.”
