With the explosive growth of data in every aspect of our lives and in enterprises across the world, there is growing demand to derive value from this data and provide business intelligence. Enterprises depend on this intelligence so they can meet their customers’ needs in a timely manner and with greater precision. Along with traditional sources of data, new sources of data such as those from the “Internet of Things”, social media interactions, and sensors have emerged. Collectively, these vastly larger information volumes and new assets are known as Big Data.
Vormetric Data Security products enable enterprise customers to comply with regulatory requirements by encrypting data that is stored and processed by MongoDB systems using centralized key management and access control policies. Encrypting data incurs some performance overhead, however there is no overhead when using Vormetric Data Security under several different workloads and minimal overhead in other cases.
The MongoDB Performance paper presents the results of Vormetric Transparent Encryption performance against a baseline of XFS using the YAHOO Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB) approach. Read the whitepaper to learn how Vormetric Transparent Encryption improves performance for typical MongoDB workloads which results in a more secure MongoDB environment.
