This podcast is sponsored by the blockchain DBMS company Walacor. Their core product, the Walacor Platform, is a database management software application that improves the security, auditability, and recoverability of existing databases. It has the potential to save companies millions of dollars in dealing with data breaches, and while the Walacor Platform is fully capable of replacing existing database installations, it’s also easy to add onto existing systems.

Walacor encrypts data at the individual record level so that any data breach only results in the breaching of an individual data point and legally defined data breaches cannot occur. Data protection and data integrity is still a big issue and a huge expense for large companies, and Walacor makes it incredibly simple for companies to integrate blockchain technology into existing DBMSs so they can benefit from blockchain tech without needing to hire new employees or teach any new skills.

Downloading their software is a turn-key solution where Walacor creates a private blockchain around existing databases, or creates a new database to protect each individual data point with its own level of encryption. Software developers and database administrators can easily onboard themselves through Amazon Marketplace with just a few clicks and get instant access to the benefits of the blockchain.
