MemSQL has introduced new enterprise security capabilities to further the adoption of solutions requiring both speed and advanced security.

With this additional functionality, enterprises can streamline the security and administration of MemSQL, resulting in wider adoption and maximum protection in performance environments.

Specifically, MemSQL is introducing Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for its distributed database platform. RBAC provides enterprises a flexible way to set security measures by user role and group—all while maintaining maximum performance.

"More companies across more industries now view real-time workflows as a critical technology enabler,” said Nikita Shamgunov, CTO and co-founder, MemSQL. "In many cases, security cannot be compromised just to keep up with the data. With the addition of RBAC, MemSQL customers can scale the number of users and roles to tens of thousands without compromising performance—absolutely critical in today's real-time world.”

MemSQL customers can now use simple and robust security configurations to create a role with specific capabilities, which then can be associated with a user and specified access. The RBAC feature was extensively run with a rigorous set of functional and performance tests, including inside a FIPS 140-2 environment.

Shamgunov said real-time is the new standard for processing and analyzing data. Historically, companies with stringent security requirements have been kept at arm’s length from achieving real-time results.

By including RBAC in its latest release, MemSQL furthers adoption of real-time data in environments requiring comprehensive security. This includes global industries such as healthcare, IoT, and government.
