Porticor and nScaled Partner to Deliver Secure and Compliant Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery for Cloud Data

Porticor Adds Software-Defined Encryption Key Management to nScaled's Leading IT BCDR Platform for Complete Protection of Replicated Data in the Cloud

CAMPBELL, CA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/14 -- Porticor® and nScaled today announced the industry's first joint solution integrating software-defined homomorphic encryption key management to protect customers' cloud information and applications replicated for IT Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR).

Porticor is a leading cloud data security company delivering the only cloud-based key management and data encryption solution that infuses trust into the cloud and keeps cloud data confidential. nScaled is a provider of automated, integrated IT Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) solutions.

nScaled's Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) platform replicates data, servers, operating systems and applications to protect and deliver critical IT services to users in case of a man-made or natural disaster, equipment failure or data loss. nScaled's DRaaS hybrid cloud solution ensures that replicas are up to date at all times, including both the data and the "virtual machine images" of the code that runs the applications. Forrester Research, Inc., named nScaled a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Disaster-Recovery-As-A-Service Providers, Q1 2014.

Porticor adds key management and encryption to nScaled's solution. Integrated into nScaled's physical and virtual appliance, Porticor encrypts the data store of each application backed up by nScaled's solution seamlessly and transparently. Porticor is also implemented on nScaled's cloud, ensuring that any data replicated to the nScaled cloud is also encrypted. The result is multifaceted, data-at-rest and in-transmission encryption solution that protects information at the customer's data center and in the cloud.

"We are in the insurance business so clients share personal and account information about their employees with us," said Aatash Patel, IT Director at Covala Group, a leading enroller and administrator of voluntary, supplemental individual disability benefits for large employers. "With nScaled in place serving our disaster recovery needs, we needed a private cloud data encryption solution that was high performing and compatible with our VMware environment. Porticor has been our answer to protect clients' confidential information, and help us meet their compliance requirements. We spun up Porticor with nScaled in our cloud without any technical training, and support has been very helpful at both companies. I am very happy with what both vendors are doing together so far."

For a white paper on the partnership and joint solution now available, see http://www.porticor.com/porticor-nscaled-secure-dr/.

"Business continuity and disaster recovery have been one of the most successful services offered through the cloud model, and nScaled delivers the industry's leading automated and integrated solution," said Mark Jameson, VP of Worldwide Sales and Product Strategy at nScaled. "Together with Porticor we are providing the most secure and reliable Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to protect customer's data and applications."

"Cloud providers, including providers delivering DRaaS, offer a 'shared responsibility' model for the security and protection of customer applications and data," said Gilad Parann-Nissany, Porticor founder and CEO. "Now that we have teamed with nScaled, customers can be assured that their applications and information will be available and safe from loss due to disasters and cloud data security threats."

Cloud data encryption provides an effective layer of protection against new cloud security challenges, including internal cloud data center threats, information protection in a shared environment, and compliance requirements which mandate information to be secured both on premises and in the cloud. The challenge created is not in encrypting the data, but with managing the encryption keys. To provide secure cloud management of encryption keys for outsourced data center services to the nScaled cloud, Porticor uses a highly sophisticated and patented approach -- split key encryption and homomorphic key management.

The Porticor Virtual Private Data system is the industry's only solution combining data encryption with patented split-key encryption and homomorphic key management technologies to protect critical data in public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Unlike traditional data encryption solutions, which are complicated and expensive to deploy and manage, Porticor's split-key encryption and homomorphic key management system is offered as the industry's first cloud data protection service of its kind, delivering true confidentiality of data in the cloud by ensuring customer encryption keys are not exposed.
