Bloombase Delivers Spitfire StoreSafe for IBM DB2 on z/OS, A Leap Forward

San Jose, United States, Sep 16, 2009 - Bloombase Technologies, Inc., one of the leading global information security companies from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced the general availability of Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe for IBM DB2 on z/OS and IBM Linux on System z, delivered ahead of schedule as the result of joint effort by Bloombase and IBM Innovation Center, and with the support of an extensive partner ecosystem and customers around the world.

"With Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe Security Server for IBM DB2 on z/OS, we once again raised the bar significantly for businesses that are in need to dramatically improve data at-rest security meeting various stringent information privacy requirements," said Harry Xiang, vice president, product marketing. "Business applications running on IBM DB2 on z/OS and IBM mainframe System z are mission critical, to be able to add data encryption to existing application infrastructure transparently without degrading overall application performance is the key to win our customers. Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe addresses customers concerns with unrivaled security, portability, manageability and scalability."

Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe Security Server for IBM DB2 on z/OS extends the previous generation Bloombase platform along three dimensions: it delivers the security required to run business critical applications with sensitive customer data in a safe environment meeting various information privacy regulatory requirements including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, SB 1386, etc, it provides uncompromised transparency over applications running on legacy DB2 on z/OS on IBM mainframe System z, and it preserves overall application performance by offloading computation intensive data cryptographic operations to highly sophisticated purpose-built NIST FIPS-140 validated Bloombase Spitfire Cryptographic Module.

Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe Security Server enables transformative data privacy and operational expenditure cost savings over and above what was previously achievable only with drastic application changes requiring tedious second development that are inefficient and risky. With Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe, even the most complex data services will benefit from the privacy assurance capabilities for data availability, security and scalability. Combining Bloombase Spitfire KeyCastle Key Management Server and extending platform support on IBM Linux on System z, for the first time customers of various sectors from government, banking and financial services institutions, energy and utilities, to healthcare, pharmaceutical and beyond, can rely on Bloombase Spitfire StoreSafe storage security solution to achieve wirespeed encryption at DB2 on z/OS.
