Storage Games

Fear sells.

Politicians know it. Parents too. And the use of fear is a popular gambit for just about any IT purchase that's security related.

I've got no data to back this up, but I'll bet most organizations over-spend where IT security is concerned. Better safe than sorry, right? Maybe.

This week, we report that NeoScale is trumpeting a new capability that can manage multiple encryption keys across multiple data centers. The vendor is releasing an API in hopes storage partners will pick up on it and make this a data center must-have. (See All Keyed Up With NeoScale.)

As Mary Jander points out in our coverage, Network Appliance's Decru unit is among the other appliance makers poised to make a similar move. And Kasten Chase apparently announced something in this vein back in December.
