nCipher, Nemonix Team

MILPITAS, Calif. and NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- nCipher plc (LSE:NCH), a global leader in protecting critical enterprise data, and Nemonix Engineering, a provider of OpenVMS (Open Virtual Memory System) services, today announced a partnership in which Nemonix will sell and support nCipher’s CryptoStor storage encryption appliance into organizations utilizing the OpenVMS platform.

Today’s security regulations and compliance mandates are driving the widespread deployment of encryption to protect sensitive information throughout the entire data lifecycle, which includes storage, back-up and recovery systems. Many organizations – especially those in the healthcare and financial services markets – rely upon business critical systems that run on highly reliable legacy VMS systems, which were not designed to easily integrate encryption technology without expensive and complex systems upgrades.

“We’ve made a business of providing the financial and healthcare markets with products and services that extend the life of legacy equipment, so we know first hand that rip-and-replace upgrades of equipment is not an option for every organization,” said Beth Bumbarger, president of Nemonix. “Our customers need a storage encryption solution that seamlessly integrates with their legacy equipment, minimizes network interruption and provides sophisticated key management. The nCipher CryptoStor product allows us to meet the security requirement in a cost effective and easy-to-deploy appliance.”
