Brocade, NetApp Form Tech Pact

by CXOtoday Staff    Jul 07, 2008

NetApp and Brocade have collaborated to enable data center customers encrypt data, and simplify policy management.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will integrate the centrally managed Lifetime Key Management solution from NetApp with Brocade’s fabric-based encryption technology. As a result, Brocade will resell the NetApp Lifetime Key Management appliance as part of its fabric-based encryption switches and blades portfolio.

Fabric-based encryption allows for a single, common method of encrypting all types of data. The collaboration will also provide a new approach to encryption of data at rest, according to a press statement.
