HP Intros Secure Key Manager

FRANKFURT, Germany -- HP today introduced a centralized, hardened security appliance to help data center managers improve privacy compliance and reduce the risk of costly data-loss due to theft.

The HP StorageWorks Secure Key Manager consolidates key management for encryption devices deployed in enterprise and mid-sized businesses. Security is improved by providing a single control point across the data center.

The company also announced the HP StorageWorks 9000 Virtual Library System, which provides scalable backup and recovery of data.

Removable media and portable devices, such as tape cartridges and notebook PCs, carry substantial security risks. HP ProtectTools, an existing HP software suite, significantly reduces these risks for notebook PCs. HP Secure Key Manager extends that security to the data center.

The holistic approach of HP Secure Advantage to address enterprise-wide security is evident in HP StorageWorks Secure Key Manager,” said Jon Oltsik, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group, an industry analyst firm. “HP clearly understands all of the complexities in securing a corporate infrastructure and is one of the first vendors to deliver a comprehensive solution to address security concerns for the enterprise and mid-size corporate data center.”
