A new press release reports, “SecurityFirst today announces the addition of a multi-tenant, highly available Object Store Agent to its DataKeep™ data-centric security solution, allowing customers to leverage low-cost and infinitely scalable storage located on-premises or within cloud environments without sacrificing data security and privacy. Additionally, new commands for existing file and volume data protection agents combine to help mitigate ransomware attacks.”
Jim Varner, President and CEO of SecurityFirst, commented, “With the explosion in the amount of data created and stored every day, security and costs have become touchstones of concern for nearly every enterprise… Object storage is an increasingly attractive option for infrequently used data, backups and archives that also offers relatively rapid retrieval options. And because it is focused on rarely used data, it can cost effectively accommodate large data volumes while meeting key compliance requirements. By bringing the Object Store Agent to the DataKeep family, we enable superior data-level protection and allow customers to take advantage of this type of storage option without compromising data security.”
The release goes on, “Key DataKeep product enhancements and benefits include: (1) Greater Autonomy – From supporting Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) through to creating policies that dictate more granular access permissions, the Object Store Agent gives companies expanded enterprise-level control and capabilities… (2) Cost Optimization – Companies across industries such as financial, legal, insurance, medical, government and others, who are required to archive large volumes of data for long periods of time, can now benefit from the object storage value of smarter, infinitely scalable, and a lower-cost storage alternative to premium cloud, disk or tape storage.”
