PGP launches network storage crypto

Data scrambler

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

PGP has added another layer to its encryption platform by launching NetShare, which scrambles data headed to and from networked storage.

PGP says authorised users will be able to access their data from the desktop as normal, and IT administrators will no longer require the right to view files to maintain the network.

The software is designed to slot into existing network set-ups, whether they use existing PGP encryption or not. Worried company bosses will have access to a master key that can decrypt employees's data if they deem necessary.

The firm is hoping NetShare will bring them new customers for their other products too, as it completes their encryption of the entire "information lifecycle".

CEO Phil Dunkelburger said: "Industry estimates vary, but approximately 50 per cent of all data security breaches occur from within an organisation. PGP NetShare provides persistent protection to content, wherever it resides."

NetShare encrypts any file format and works with Windows, NAS and SAN servers. It's available Q4 this year and starts at $149 for a single unit. ®
