Townsend Security announced that it is extending free Not for Resale (NFR) licenses to Microsoft MVPs and AWS Heroes for Alliance Key Manager, their FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption key management server (KMS). The NFR licenses are available for non-production use only, including educational, lab testing, evaluation, training, and demonstration purposes. NFR Licenses are available at https://info.townsendsecurity.com/nfr-license.

Joining VMware vExperts in Townsend Security’s successful NFR program, Microsoft MVPs and AWS Heroes can protect databases, applications, and VMware images with a secure and compliant key management server (KMS). Additionally, the solution allows businesses to properly encrypt private data without modifying their business applications. Alliance Key Manager supports the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) and Microsoft’s Extensible Key Management (EKM) found in SQL Server Enterprise 2008+ and SQL Server Standard 2019+. The solution is available as a VMware Virtual Machine or in the cloud (AWS, Microsoft Azure).

Additionally, Townsend Security provides Alliance Key Manager users with a wide range of ready-to-use security applications, SDKs, and sample code. With over 3,000 users worldwide, the solution is helping businesses achieve their security and efficiency goals in cloud and VMware environments.

“Protecting sensitive data continues to be a critical concern in IT, and an important part of both security and compliance efforts,” said Patrick Townsend, CEO of Townsend Security. “After launching with VMware vExperts, we are excited to extend the program to Microsoft MVPs and AWS Heroes. I believe they will be pleased to see how fast and easy encryption key management has become.”
