Leading data protection solutions provider Baffle is expanding its capabilities to serverless computing. The company said it will now offer first-to-market data-centric protection for Amazon’s AWS Lambda.
Baffle’s Advanced Data Protection service starts data encryption right from the time of production and do so throughout the entire process. This helps in protecting data at all times. Last year, CRN recognized Baffle as an emerging vendor in the security category.
AWS Lambda is a serverless computing service that allows users to run code for virtually any kind of application and backend service. It doesn’t need users to provision or manage any servers. They get billed only for the compute time and aren’t charged when the code is not running. AWS Lambda is an ideal service for applications that don’t need any compute infrastructure provisioning.
As per a report by Cloud Foundry Foundation, nearly 46% of companies are using and evaluating serverless computing in 2018, which is a 10% increase from its last survey. This shows that serverless computing is growing, and it is the future of computing.
Baffle is aiming to secure serverless computing for enterprises by providing its data protection services for AWS Lambda. The company said that its solution is flexible that allows customers to lift and shift to cloud while protecting their sensitive information.

“Serverless and ephemeral computing is taking the enterprise by storm,” said Ameesh Divatia, CEO and co-founder, Baffle.
“Developers simply want to write code and not have to worry about back-end server provisioning and security requirements. Baffle’s data-centric security gives customers the confidence to run code anywhere without dedicated hardware and utilize the latest Amazon AWS innovations to scale their businesses. Legacy encryption and hardware-based approaches cannot provide this peace of mind to enterprises, and today’s announcement is Baffle’s latest milestone in advancing the security of this new infrastructure.”
