Security First Corp. Announces SPxSHARC for VMware vCenter Server at Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference 2014

Security First Corp. today announced the availability of SPxSHARC for VMware vCenter Server from Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference 2014. “At least 70% of x86 server workloads are virtualized, the market is mature and competitive, and enterprises have viable choices,” according to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for x86 Server Virtualization Infrastructure, published July 2, 2014. As a result, an increasing number of enterprises are deploying virtualization technologies for cost savings and competitive benefits.

SPxSHARC for vCenter runs in the VMWare ESXi (5.1 and above) hypervisor, giving businesses of all sizes the ability to deploy the data centric security solution on multiple virtual machines. It is deployed as an open virtual appliance and includes a plug-in to allow for seamless operations in the vCenter environment.

“This offering extends the scalability and flexibility of our solutions for customers who require a security on demand model for multiple lines of business – all with a single installation,” said Mark O’Hare, Chief Executive Officer, Security First Corp.

The integration with vCenter offers centralized management capability, making it ideal for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) at an attractive price point. Because customers don’t need large, expensive key storage systems, the multi-tenancy features allow for improved shared storage and consolidation.

“SPxSHARC for vCenter is easily tailored to particular business needs such as compliance, confidentiality and privacy,” said O’Hare. “In today’s network-centric world, it is imperative that businesses protect their data beyond traditional perimeter and access control solutions. They need data-centric solutions that render data unreadable, unusable, unintelligible, always available and totally protected should and when their network protection fails or systems go offline.”

Introduced in September, SPxSHARC is a software defined, data centric security solution that provides provably secure data encryption alongside crypotograhic random bit-splitting. This renders your data invulnerable to brute force attacks and provides rock solid protection in any type of storage environment.

SPxSHARC also allows businesses to maintain compliance with the myriad of regulatory requirements within their industry, including HIPAA, HITECH, FISMA, FERPA, Sarbanes-Oxley and PCI.

SPxSHARC for vCenter is available now.
