Data centre solutions provider Brocade today launched a range of security and management offerings which it claims can aid compliance efforts by enabling firms to encrypt critical corporate data and centrally manage the flow of data.
The Brocade Encryption Switch is a 32-port, auto-sensing 8Gbit/sec Fibre Channel switch with high-speed encryption capabilities, while the firm's FS8-18 Encryption Blade provides the same storage security services in a 16-port blade.
Both systems provide up to 96Gbit/sec of encryption processing power, according to Brocade.
The Brocade Data Center Fabric Manager 10 is a new storage network management application designed to help customers manage Brocade's entire range of storage networking products, including Brocade DCX Backbones, directors, extension devices and switches, said the firm.
Jon Oltsik, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, said in a statement supporting the release: "The amount of sensitive information continues to grow precipitously, so organisations need a broader deployment of encryption technologies across data centres in order to protect data confidentiality and privacy.
"Specific to storage, these security and privacy demands require an architectural approach for enterprise-wide encryption of data-at-rest, while enabling end-to-end management for the secure flow of data across multiple fabrics."
