Cryptsoft Extends Leadership in the Tape Storage Industry with Spectra Logic Integration
BRISBANE, Australia - Jan. 10, 2017 - PRLog -- Cryptsoft, a leader in data encryption, today announced that Spectra Logic Corporation has selected Cryptsoft's Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) technology to deliver state-of-art data encryption capabilities across its TFinity® product line. Cryptsoft's technology will enable Spectra Logic to meet the security requirements of customers from high performance computing, finance, media, energy and other verticals. This represents a significant step forward in vendor choice now that LTO standard encrypting tape drives from both HPE and IBM are present in KMIP enabled enterprise tape library solutions from multiple vendors within the storage industry.
Increasing security threats have made data encryption a must have for storage products. The complexity of key management has been a major hurdle for vendors looking to deliver end-to-end encryption across diverse enterprise products. Cryptsoft KMIP SDKs provide simple, standards-based key management, enabling seamless interoperability and enterprise level management across a wide range of storage and security products. Cryptsoft's comprehensive SDK suite reduces development costs and time-to-market. Spectra Logic joins a growing number of vendors from the storage industry adopting Cryptsoft's KMIP technology, making Cryptsoft the preferred provider of key management for the IBM and HPE tape drive market.
"Spectra Logic is excited to offer Cryptsoft's KMIP encryption technology into its enterprise library family, including TFinity ExaScale. Cryptsoft has deep experience building and customizing security solutions that offer customers additional options for protecting and managing data," said Matt Starr, Spectra Logic's CTO. "By implementing KMIP across Spectra's enterprise-class tape library products, we meet the modern security expectations of high performance computing and deep storage customers using mid-range to exabyte scale storage. Customers will benefit from using the full set of standards-based key management capabilities provided by Cryptsoft's market-leading KMIP implementation to seamlessly integrate with existing security solutions."
"As the rapidly expanding volume of mission-critical data within enterprises represents significant value to the enterprise, so does the risk associated with data theft or loss increase. Cryptsoft remains focused on supplying the right mix of technology which enables customers like Spectra Logic to meet their data security and management needs, both in terms of data security and data availability both in the short and very long terms," said Tim Hudson, Cryptsoft's CTO. "Deploying Cryptsoft's KMIP conformant encryption and key management technologies ensure that Spectra Logic customers can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that not only are their data resources available quickly and reliably and at scale, but that long-term, industry standard data protection is also assured."
