Bloombase and ATTO Technology Partner to Deliver Non-Disruptive Data Protection for Media and Entertainment Industry

January 25, 2012 - Bloombase Technologies, the leading data at-rest security company from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced the completion of ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and ATTO FibreConnect Fibre Channel Switches interoperability validation and that Bloombase has joined the ATTO Access Partner Program.

“Media, publishing and entertainment professionals produce large amount of copyrighted digital intellectual properties - songs, music, videos, graphics and articles, which need protection with special care,” said Sean Xiang, CEO of Bloombase Technologies. “They require these data to be securely kept and locked down on static disks as much as they demand capacity, speed and ease of access when on the brew. By combining Bloombase non-disruptive data at-rest security solution and ATTO HBAs and Fibre Channel Switches available for Apple Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems, it is a dream-come-true for digital content makers who want to turn their jukebox SAN into a secure vault.”

Customers used to be left with no choice but costly, difficult-to-manage, and proprietary hardware products when it comes to Fibre Channel SAN at-rest data encryption. Bloombase empowers customers to regain openness in defense-in-depth storage security and enables businesses of all sizes to secure their invaluable digital assets easily and cost effectively by using ATTO Fibre Channel connectivity. It is through partnerships like this to demonstrate our commitment to bringing the latest digital rights protection innovations to the market.

“We are pleased to be qualified with the Bloombase Technologies solution,” said Wayne Arvidson, vice president of marketing at ATTO Technology. “By pairing our fibre channel HBAs with Bloombase storage systems, users in the media and entertainment industry can benefit from the leading technology in storage security and privacy.”

Meeting tomorrow’s connectivity needs today, Celerity fibre channel HBAs extend the capabilities of software and hardware, increase overall system performance and drive intelligence all the way to the edge of the SAN. ATTO Celerity FC-84EN uses two next-generation storage technologies – PCIe 2.0 interconnect and 8-Gigabit Fibre Channel. With 8Gb/s FC speeds of up to 1600MB/s per channel, the Celerity FC-84EN supports the most demanding application requirements, including high-definition video, rich content databases and other high-bandwidth environments. The ATTO FibreConnect™ 8300 series of 8Gb/s Fibre Channel switches provide enterprise-level features for small to mid-range SANs to enable high performance and low latency collaborative workflows.

Bloombase storage security systems enable non-disruptive data privacy over and above what was previously achievable only with host-based, fabric-based or storage-based solutions. With Bloombase agentless data security solutions, even the most complex and throughput-demanding media data services will benefit from the privacy and integrity assurance capabilities for at-rest data security. Combining ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel adapters and ATTO FibreConnect SAN switches, media and entertainment professionals can rely on the Bloombase SAN encryption security system to protect their sensitive media contents with uncompromised security stored on SANs.
