for UserSpace

Encryption UserSpace works across multiple flavors of Linux OS that makes deploying the solution easy for customers. Traditionally, these efforts required multiple agents to be tested per Linux OS version. Transparent Encryption UserSpace eliminates these hurdles by using a single installation package across all Linux OS and OS kernel upgrades without cross-checking compatibility. It provides encryption and access control with centralized key management without changes to infrastructure or applications.

Key Advantages of Encryption for UserSpace:

Transparent Encryption UserSpace continuously enforces file-level encryption that protects against unauthorized access by users and processes and creates detailed data access audit logs of all activities without requiring changes to applications, infrastructure, systems management tasks, or business practices.
Transparent Encryption UserSpace agents are deployed on Linux servers at the file system level and are agnostic to Linux kernel patches. Supports continuous Linux server patching without agent changes.
It is based on Linux FUSE libraries which allows it to be deployed across different Linux distributions. Not requiring continuous updates allows user to keep administration costs low.
Specific policies can be applied to protect data from external attacks and misuse by privileged users. Controls also include access by process, file type, and other parameters.
It only employs strong, standard-based encryption protocols, such as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), for data encryption. Encryption overhead is minimized using the AES hardware encryption capabilities available in modern CPUs.
Transparent Encryption UserSpace helps achieve compliance with a variety of regulations that require encryption of data including credit card numbers for PCI-DSS compliance, electronic patient health information (EPHI) for HIPAA, and personal identifiable information (PII) to comply with many regional data privacy regulations.

Userspace encryption offers flexibility and control for encrypting data at the application or user level. While it can be a useful approach in certain scenarios, it also requires careful implementation and key management to ensure the security and integrity of encrypted data. Organizations and developers should carefully consider their specific requirements and constraints when choosing between userspace and kernel-level encryption solutions.
