NeoScale Manages Security

NeoScale will present CryptoStor KeyVault to attendees at EMC World 2006

BOSTON -- NeoScale Systems Inc., the premier provider of enterprise storage security solutions, today announced it will present CryptoStor KeyVaultÔ, the industry’s first open, automated and secure storage encryption key management appliance to attendees at EMC World 2006, the sixth annual EMC Technology Summit, which takes place April 24-27 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. NeoScale, an EMC Select Partner, will conduct an educational session to coincide with the company’s most recent storage security advances on Wednesday, April 26, 2006 and showcase CryptoStor KeyVault in booth #308.

Today’s popular VTL, file-level, tape and host-software encryption technologies present unique challenges when it comes to managing storage security and encryption keys across distributed environments. CryptoStor KeyVault is the first multi-system key repository to offer an open API in order to provide centralized key management across multi-system storage encryption devices to automate and simplify key management in distributed storage environments.

“EMC World is a marquee event for storage networking professionals and system administrators and we are excited to showcase the latest advances in storage security,” said James Yu, vice president of business development for NeoScale Systems, Inc. “Increasingly, users are networking storage and sending data offsite which creates potential vulnerabilities. NeoScale targets this increasingly important issue to support the growing enterprise with best-in-class storage security and open, automated and secure key management.”

Managing the growing number of storage encryption keys across file-level, tape-level and host-based encryption products is too important to leave to dated and complex manual operations — the opportunity for user error exposes the organization to significant risk. Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) key management solutions can be enormously complex and not suited for storage environments. Storage-centric KeyVault, however, automates all of the essential key life-cycle activities across multivendor encryption products to eliminate any chance of failure. Users decide when and where keys should be made available and create Trust Relationships to automate their decisions. Once activated, Trust Relationships automatically ensure that encryption keys are available when and where they are needed, and can be used only by properly authenticated users.
