Hifn to Showcase Secure iSCSI Appliances at FOSE 08

LOS GATOS, Calif., March 31, 2008 – Hifn™ (NASDAQ: HIFN), the catalyst behind storage and networking innovation, will showcase its Swarm™ secure iSCSI SAN appliances at FOSE 2008 Conference and Exhibition, April 1-3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., Booth #1517N.

Hifn’s Swarm appliances are the only iSCSI storage appliances available with integrated AES256 hardware data encryption, providing a simple-to-deploy and easy-to-use, out-of-the-box regulatory compliance solution for government installations facing the complexity of protecting people’s data and mandates governing the retention of information. In addition, Hifn’s Swarm 3000 model was the world’s first iSCSI storage appliance to feature RAID level 6, adding an extra layer of protection against potential data loss during the longer array rebuild times associated with high-capacity SATA drives.

Hifn’s IP SAN storage system allows government users to leverage their existing Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure and IP knowledge base to deploy a secure IP Storage Area Network with the associated cost benefits of storage consolidation and centralized management without the complexity penalties of typical Fibre Channel SANs. Hifn has simplified the management of network storage by including a complete set of storage services with every Swarm iSCSI appliance, including data encryption, storage consolidation, snapshots, remote replication, central management, automatic backup, and support for both iSCSI and NAS (block and file storage) in the same appliance. Those storage services are typically extra-cost add-ons with other storage appliances, making the Swarm Series the most secure and best value in iSCSI storage for government users.

Hifn’s Swarm secure iSCSI appliances are available on the GSA schedule through Promark Technology.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
