Cryptsoft continues to extend its role as the premier supplier of Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) technologies to the global market by adding AppViewX Inc., a leading provider of certificate management and network automation solutions, to their long list of valued customers.

AppViewX has recognized and responded to wide-spread customer demand for full lifecycle management of symmetric data encryption keys, by adding Cryptsoft's KMIP (Key Management Interoperability Protocol) Server to their platform. Having an extensive customer list of internationally recognised companies, AppViewX understood that market-proven, open standards-based solutions, such as the OASIS KMIP standard, was the lowest-risk technical path to meeting their customers' requirements. After evaluating all options for acquiring KMIP technology, including OEM supply, open-source, and internal development, Cryptsoft's technology was selected as the most direct and expedient path to commercial success.

"With our customers, and the market in general, demanding ever more from their security vendors, adding key management server (KMS) capability to our platform by licensing Cryptsoft's proven KMIP server was an uncomplicated choice given their market knowledge, extensive experience, and impressive customer roster. The detailed technical support we received from Cryptsoft helped our engineers to quickly and effectively integrate Cryptsoft's technology into our platform and comply to the KMIP standard." said Muralidharan Palanisamy, Chief Solutions Officer at AppViewX.
