NATICK, Mass., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nasuni®, a provider of enterprise storage to large, distributed organizations, today announced that Andres Rodriguez, the company's co-founder and CEO, will speak at Interop on the secure use of cloud storage. The session will show how new advancements enable enterprises to realize the benefits of cloud storage without giving up the control IT leaders associate with the most advanced on-premise storage infrastructure.
In the session, titled "Security for Untrusted Storage," Rodriguez will address head-on the belief that cloud storage implies or requires enterprises to forfeit a level of control over their data. Specifically, the session will explore the benefits of cloud storage, its application within the data center as a component, and new approaches to data encryption, key management, data integrity and data consistency that fundamentally change the use case for the cloud.
Session "Security for Untrusted Storage"
Andres Rodriguez, co-founder and CEO of Nasuni; former CEO and founder of Archivas; and former CTO of The New York Times
Interop in New York City, The Javits Center – Room 1E07
Friday, Oct. 5, 2012 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT
"The new reality is that users want access to their data from numerous locations and devices with the same performance and ease as the CIO at corporate headquarters," said Rodriguez. "The public cloud is getting harder and harder to ignore. The strategies for securing data in the public cloud are not all that different to how we already secure sensitive data on the Internet. We need to harness cloud storage for what it truly is: a new component that needs to be made secure and be integrated into our storage systems. Cloud storage is the new hard drive: elastic, resilient and available everywhere. These are extraordinary properties that can no longer be ignored when building out infrastructure."
Attendees will learn why it's now possible for IT leaders to simultaneously lower costs, please users and gain flexibility without sacrificing the confidentiality, privacy, integrity or availability of their file or block data. Rodriguez will also compare and contrast some of the many approaches to cloud storage now shaping the market, from consumer-oriented applications that allow users to share information externally with ease, to new enterprise-class solutions that preserve existing protocol and permissions.
"Until recently the cloud teased IT leaders with the allure of mobile access and unlimited capacity, while asking them to compromise on the one thing they couldn't let slide: the security of their data," added Rodriguez. "That's no longer the case. The enterprise can finally take full advantage of the cloud for storage."
