BOSaNOVA Upgrades Encryption

PHOENIX -- BOSaNOVA, Inc., the market leader in development of security solutions, thin clients and network appliances, today announces the release of a new model of its Q3 storage security encryption appliance Q3 Enterprise (Q3e.)

The new Q3e appliance is now available with user selectable AES-128 or AES-256 encryption modes and supports up to four tape drives. SCSI and Fibre units are available. The host and tape interface speeds have increased on both - 320 MB/second on SCSI and 4 Gbit/sec on Fibre channel. Encrypted throughput has also increased to 300 MB/second.

Providing complete security for backup tapes, the Q3e appliance is designed to be easy to use and non-intrusive. Installation takes only minutes and key management is strong, yet simple. For the highest level of security, each Q3e appliance includes a hardware encryption chip that is unique to each customer.

Part of this commitment is the 90-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee we offer on all Q3 orders.”
