Think You Checked the Encryption Box with SEDs? Think Again!

In case you missed it, last week a team of researchers from Radboud University in the Netherlands discovered a serious flaw in self-encrypting drives (SEDs). Luckily, it only affects drives from two manufacturers, Crucial and Samsung.  They accomplished this task spending less than 100 Euros, by reverse engineering the firmware of the drives.  You can […]

Four Data Crimes You Don’t Need to Commit

Picture a crime scene after a break-in. The images in your mind might include broken windows, shattered glass and signs of a struggle. Does that vision change if you learn the break-in took place virtually, affecting the contents of a data center – instead of a home? When a data breach occurs, there’s no physical […]

However, as more systems are deployed in a virtual infrastructure, complexity increases, along with […]

Encryption and Deduplication – Have Your Cake and Eat it!

The question of how encryption and deduplication work together is a question that comes up often. The concern is that if you encrypt data, every block will be different, deduplication won’t work and now you need more storage than you did before. And often a lot more storage. But this isn’t always the case. In […]

Cloud First, Encryption Second?

Many do not consider the government an early adopter of technology or an operator of data centers at the bleeding edge of innovation. The Cloud First initiative was meant to drive greater adoption of cloud computing amongst government organizations to help achieve cost savings and all the other wonderful advantages that are driving commercial enterprises […]

Key Management, KMIP and VMware VM Encryption

At VMworld in Barcelona VMware announced VMware VM Encryption as part of a larger vSphere 6.5 announcement. As a VMware partner (VMware is also a HyTrust investor) we are of course excited to see security being highlighted by VMware. I founded HyTrust in 2007 with the vision of enhancing security for VMware , which was […]

Encryption – like Seat Belts

Back in the day macho types, often wearing t-shirts and smoking Marlboros Reds, would tell you that they don’t wear seat belts because this lack of seat belts makes it more likely that they would be “thrown clear” in the event of an accident. Sounds pretty reasonable until you ponder where you might be “thrown […]
