Bloombase, Inc. announces the mutual certification of interoperability for Bloombase Storesafe and Huawei's OceanStor V3 Storage System.

This joint solution addresses enterprise data leakage vulnerabilities, helps organizations meet information regulatory compliance mandates, and highlights unified storage, leveraged to deliver enhanced security and scalability.

While storage in clear text remains the fundamental cause of data exposures, the addition of inbound threats adds a serious dimension to the data risk profile: sponsored espionage, data theft, disgruntled employees, insider threats, hardware theft, leakage caused by malware and viruses, various vulnerabilities as result of outsourcing, 3rd party MSPs, off-premises cloud, etc. There is no substitute for encryption of data-at-rest as the last line of defense.

StoreSafe is an agentless, turnkey, application-transparent, unified stored data encryption solution with non-disruptive deployment (protocol preserving, no operational change to application infrastructure nor daily operations). Bloombase data-at-rest security solution is portable, OS agnostic and can be used across multiple market verticals. Bloombase operates as a holistic encryption platform with an expansive reach over heterogeneous networked storage environment. It works as a storage proxy for trusted hosts and storage systems encrypting as they write, and unencrypting as they read. Bloombase's software-defined architecture is future-proofed to meet infrastructure changes through scalability and flexibility to deliver secure data services. As an independent piece, Bloombase delivers security integrity and helps maintain separation of duties.

Encryption over range of storage protocols and systems extending across SAN, NAS, DAS, tape library, VTL, CAS, object stores, and various RESTful cloud storage services, StoreSafe offers a pluggable cipher architecture supporting extensive cryptographic regulatory standards. Bloombase Cryptographic Module is NIST FIPS 140-2 certified and IEEE 1619 compliant, and Bloombase also supports key management standards including PKCS#11 and OASIS KMIP.

Huawei offers a complete product landscape extending from mobile communications, networking, professional services, computing, and storage.

The Bloombase/Huawei data-at-rest encryption solution meets the storage encryption needs of telecommunications, MSPs and the public sector: all managing complex and heterogeneous IT infrastructures. Bloombase leverages a software-appliance approach allowing customers to deploy encryption on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware servers, virtual appliances, or cloud compute instances that yields rock-solid stability and flexibility. Consistent with this, Storesafe encryption software leverages Intel AES-NI for high bandwidth cryptographic performance. Bloombase delivers data-at-rest encryption for OceanStor storage systems over protocols including FCP, iSCSI, NFS, CIFS, and REST/HTTP, etc.

"Organizational customers are seeking total data-at-rest security solutions that are open in standard, turnkey, and embraces true value-added technology for longevity," said Sean Xiang, CEO, Bloombase. "By addressing the evolving data center transformation and intensifying cyberattack challenges, the joint Bloombase-Huawei storage data security solution will lock the data loss problem down."
