Emulex introduces Secure HBA technology

The technology to protect companies form insider threats

By CBR Staff Writer

Emulex has announced that it is introducing its Secure HBA technology, an enterprise-class, host-based security system that protects data across the enterprise, encrypts data in-flight and at-rest, and reportedly provides effective access controls.

According to Emulex, Secure HBA technology helps protect companies from insider threats, which account for 68% of reported breaches. With Emulex Secure HBAs, companies reportedly benefit from cost-effective, enterprise-class security, without upgrading their storage systems, buying expensive appliances that do not scale and add unneeded complexity, or installing CPU intensive host-based encryption software.

Emulex claims that its Secure HBA technology simplifies mandatory auditing and reporting by placing the required security components (keys, effective access controls, logging, management processes and reporting) at the right place – the host. Emulex Secure HBA data encryption is transparent up and down the stack, from applications to the storage environment, allowing IT managers to secure an entire enterprise with an optimized system, the company added.

Steve Daheb, chief market officer and senior vice president of business development at Emulex, said: Preventing data breaches and complying with information security mandates are growing concerns for organizations of any size, location or industry throughout the world. Emulex Secure HBA technology provides maximum enterprise-wide data center protection by delivering encryption at the host, shielding companies from expensive, embarrassing data loss or theft.
