Sun Adds Encryption

Sun Microsystems announced two new solutions to help customers protect their information at multiple points in the data lifecycle

NEW YORK -- Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUNW) today announced two new solutions to help customers protect their information at multiple points in the data lifecycle. Sun is introducing device-level tape encryption with key management on the Sun StorageTek(TM) T10000 tape drive and its first virtual tape library solution to run on the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS).

The new products capitalize on Sun's network infrastructure assets, including the Solaris 10 OS, Sun Fire(TM) servers and Sun Ultra(TM) Workstations, to deliver enhanced tape security and virtualization capabilities. These products add to the already-robust portfolio of integrated security controls offered by Sun, a collection that includes the Solaris 10 OS, the most secure OS on the planet; the UltraSPARC(R) T1 processor-based systems with built-in public key encryption; and Sun's Cryptographic Accelerator 6000 card.

"Today's announcement is the latest demonstration of the power delivered by the integration of Sun and StorageTek. Leveraging our broad technology portfolio, Sun is expanding its encryption capabilities and delivering device- level tape encryption that is application-agnostic and supports the broadest range of server platforms from mainframes to open systems," said Nigel Dessau, vice president of marketing, Storage, Sun Microsystems. "To address the need of protecting data at multiple points in the lifecycle, Sun is also enabling customers to protect data at the virtualization layer."
