AUSTRALIA, Sydney - 17 April 2007
Decru, a NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) company, today unveiled the
Decru® SecureView™ management framework to enable
centralised management of encryption, keys, and policies across the
enterprise. The SecureView framework is available on all Decru
appliances, providing a secure, simplified interface to manage
security for heterogeneous storage environments.
As enterprises have moved from piecemeal encryption to broader,
enterprise-wide initiatives, the need for powerful unified
management has emerged. The SecureView framework is available
immediately to centralise control of Decru security and key
management appliances, providing secure management of up to 1,000
devices from a single interface. Features include administrator
management, role-based access controls (RBAC), configuration and
patch management, rolling upgrades, performance and access
monitoring, and centralised graphical user (GUI) and command-line
interfaces (CLI) to enable the automation of operations across
groups of appliances. SecureView uses cryptographic smart cards to
enforce two-factor authentication for administrative access, and
all cryptographic functions run inside secure hardware in Decru
DataFort™ and Lifetime Key Management™
"Most enterprises realise that their data security needs will only
grow, and strong management for encryption, keys, and policies is a
must-have," said Michele Borovac, director of marketing at Decru.
"Our customers tell us that centralised management is critical for
deploying security across distributed environments, and the
SecureView platform incorporates many of the best practices we've
developed over the past years."
The introduction of the SecureView platform highlights the ongoing
innovation that makes Decru the leader in the storage security
market. Other firsts include the following:
