Bloombase transparent at-rest data encryption security for Dell EqualLogic

  1. 1. Solution BriefBloombase transparent data security forDell EqualLogic storage Traditional Information Technology security studies regard outsiders as the Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe is a originators of cyber-attacks. Technologies such as firewalls, Intrusion Detection versatile software platform that Systems (IDS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), content filters, anti-virus, provides agentless, non-disruptive, anti-malware, anti-spyware, SSL-VPN, Unified Threat Management (UTM), application transparent, at-rest all sit at the frontline defending the perimeter of core IT infrastructure. data encryption on Dell EqualLogic Data breaches have increased in terms of spread and scale, despite the storage. The solution can help you: numerous IT security measures and best practices implemented. Data exposure is caused by a range of threats: hardware theft, backup tape loss, • Maximize your return on investment viral attacks, malwares or insider threats. (ROI) with easy-to-implement, scalable security-hardened EqualLogic As unknown attacks, insider threats and targeted attacks are on the rise, iSCSI SAN storage systems sensitive plain-text data residing on core enterprise storage leaves computing and business automation systems with huge vulnerabilities. Many users are • Easily manage security rules and relying on encryption technologies to ward off those threats and avoid massive encryption policies of your data data exposure. Encryption of at-rest data is technically perceived as the last • Protect your business critical line of defense as stated in numerous industry best practices. Nevertheless, and time sensitive data enterprises adopting application-specific encryption usually have to put forth tremendous effort on implementation and as a result push the mission-critical • Quickly and securely retrieve your applications towards degraded performance and increased risks. secret data for various trusted and authorized requests including regulatory compliance
