Bloombase Technologies Completes QLogic Storage Networking Interoperability Testing

October 11, 2011 - Bloombase Technologies, one of the leading global information security companies from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced the completion of QLogic Storage Networking Interoperability testing and that Bloombase has joined the QLogic® NETtrack Alliance partners program.

"The comprehensive QLogic NETtrack Alliance program allowed us to quickly and easily confirm that our Spitfire Encryption Security Server is completely interoperable with QLogic’s industry-leading Fibre Channel portfolio. By bridging QLogic Fibre Channel adapters and switches and Intel multi-core, AES-NI-supported, generic, commodity servers, Bloombase Spitfire Encryption Security Server creates a transparent Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN) storage encrypting proxy server for enterprise datacenter storage fabrics, dramatically raising the bar on at-rest data confidentiality and integrity assurance,” said Sean Xiang, CEO of Bloombase Technologies. “The Bloombase Spitfire Encryption Security Server is capable of meeting various stringent information security regulatory standards easily and cost-effectively.".

When it comes to SAN encryption, customers used to be left with no choice but costly and sustainability-challenged, proprietary, hardware products. Bloombase Spitfire empowers customers to eliminate vendor lock-in and regain openness in defense-in-depth storage security. The end-result is a proven and trusted regulatory compliance standard for large-scale organizations and corporations who have zero tolerance on data leak, thereby, enabling customers to meet PCI DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, SOX, etc and mitigate outbound threats with unrivaled security, manageability and efficiency.

“The goal of the QLogic NetTrack Partner Program is to help our industry partners by providing the tools required to validate interoperability of a partner solution," said Joe Kimpler, director of technical alliances, QLogic. "NetTrack interoperability validation ensures that the joint solution meets some of the most stringent testing requirements in the industry and it's important to us to offer this incentive to our partners."

QLogic Fibre Channel adapters offer best-in-class performance and functionality for SANs. QLogic Fibre Channel adapters not only meet the needs of today’s demanding data center requirements by providing power and virtualization optimization, but also offer investment protection through backwards-compatibility with previous-generation 4Gb and 2Gb Fibre Channel devices. QLogic 5000 Series Stackable Switches support 2Gb, 4Gb and 8Gb servers and storage, all connected by the world’s fastest SAN backbone with inter-switch links (ISLs) that provide 20Gb throughput. The switches not only deliver the performance that organizations need today, but also provide a simple migration path to 8Gb and 16Gb Fibre Channel for the infrastructure of tomorrow.

Bloombase Spitfire Security Systems enable transformative data privacy and operational efficiency over and above what was previously achievable only with drastic application changes. This would require tremendous, second development efforts at hosts and applications that are costly and risky. With Bloombase Spitfire transparent data security solutions, even the most complex and throughput-demanding data services will benefit from the privacy and integrity assurance capabilities for data availability, security and scalability. Combining QLogic 8Gb Fibre Channel adapters and switches, customers can rely on the Bloombase Spitfire SAN Encryption Security System to provide uncompromised privacy and protection over sensitive information stored on SANs for their business-critical applications.
