Amherst, NY (July 17, 2017) – Today, ATTO Technology, Inc. and Bloombase have announced a partnership to provide a certified interoperable and easily deployable solution by combining the ATTO family of Celerity™ host bus adapters (HBAs), FastFrame™ network interface cards (NICs) and Bloombase StoreSafe data-at-rest encryption solution to offer an ultra-high performance and fully encrypted solution.
The interoperable solution addresses enterprise data leakage and exfiltration vulnerabilities that helps organizations meet stringent confidentiality and regulatory compliance mandates by locking down their data within a storage area network (SAN) or NAS over industry-standard network storage protocols including FCP, iSCSI, NFS, in storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS).
Bloombase’s StoreSafe helps to safeguard data with industry-standard cryptography to protect against outbound data and exfiltration threats. It is a complete turnkey, data-at-rest encryption security solution. It is designed to secure physical or virtual datacenter and cloud infrastructures, offering seamless protection in either on-premises or off-premises deployments. This ensures that data encryption security is preserved as operational needs evolve. StoreSafe is a high-performance data encryption solution that secures virtually all types of enterprise data, whether structured or unstructured, and supports heterogeneous storage environments. StoreSafe is deployed as a “drop-in” software appliance proxy, requires zero operational changes and does not impact user workflows.
The benefits of the partnership are apparent to Sean Xiang, Bloombase CEO, who says, “We understand how challenging the market is today for organizations and enterprises. We want to make sure that customers have access to the highest levels of security by making it easier for them to build security solutions around products from vendors they trust and are familiar with” He continues, “Partnering with ATTO allows for interoperability and through this, customers gain a powerful plug-in solution from two of the industry’s leading vendors.”
“Data security is critical in today’s rapidly expanding array-to-cloud environment,” said Tim Klein Founder and CEO at ATTO Technology. “By pairing our Fibre Channel HBAs and Ethernet network interface cards with Bloombase’s industry leading security software,” says Klein, “IT professionals can meet their stringent Quality-of-Service (QoS) demands across today’s virtual datacenter-to-hyperconverged infrastructures.”
In today’s everything-is-connected environment, from the data center to mobile devices and into the cloud, a corporation’s business critical data is subject to data-theft, business partner phishing, data tampering, and application hacking. Adding to this highly connected and complex environment are the mandatory regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley, Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Financial Services Modernization Act (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB). These regulations mean that companies are under intense legal and fiduciary pressure to retain their information for longer periods of time, while ensuring it remains private.
New requirements to lock down business sensitive information within complex heterogeneous storage infrastructures, both on- and off-premise, creates an extraordinary set of challenges for enterprise data centers. However, the cost of security beaches can be massive. While California was the first state to enact a security breach notification law, several other states have enacted their own version of the law. These laws requires any person or business that owns or licenses computerized data that includes personal information to disclose any breach of the security of the system to all residents whose unencrypted personal information was acquired by an unauthorized person. It is imperative that IT professionals take every precaution to avoid data breaches but if one does happen, data encryption is the last line of defense. A majority of US states now have date privacy laws stating that encrypted data that is breached does not have to be reported and U.S Congressional bills have similar provisions.
ATTO offers businesses of all sizes an unparalleled range of storage infrastructure and connectivity solutions. ATTO Fibre Channel HBAs are engineered with the latest technology to deliver industry-leading performance.
