Crunchy Data Has Co-Authored An Update to the CIS Benchmark for PostgreSQL 11 and Continues To Build Upon Security Guidance for PostgreSQL Deployments.\
Crunchy Data, the leading provider of trusted open source PostgreSQL technology and support, in collaboration with the Center for Internet Security®, is pleased to announce the publication of a PostgreSQL CIS Benchmark™ for PostgreSQL 11. Crunchy Data again collaborated with CIS® by evaluating open source PostgreSQL 11 against CIS’s security requirements and developed the guide defining how open source PostgreSQL can be configured and deployed to meet security requirements for enterprise systems.
The PostgreSQL CIS Benchmark offers security-conscious enterprises a comprehensive guide for open source PostgreSQL configuration and usage. Enterprises can refer to the CIS Benchmark as they consider open source PostgreSQL as an alternative to proprietary and other database systems.
“Organizations need access to the best guidance available for the secure configuration and operation of the PostgreSQL database. It’s our mission to provide security best practices and certifications to help drive further adoption of the world’s most advanced open-source relational database,” said President of Crunchy Data, Paul Laurence.
PostgreSQL is a powerful, open-source, object-relational database system with more than 20 years of active development and a strong global development community. Commercial enterprises and government agencies with a focus on advanced data management benefit from PostgreSQL’s proven architecture and reputation for reliability, data integrity, and cost-effectiveness.
