MaXXan Offers Encryption

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- MaXXan Systems today announced immediate availability of the new CipherMax data encryption offering, delivering disk, tape, or virtual tape library (VTL) data security that far outclasses first-generation encryption products.

Based on MaXXan's Secure Storage Application Platform (SSAP), deployed in enterprises around the world, CipherMax extends the scalability, flexibility and reliability of the SSAP architecture into any network storage environment without the performance inhibitions, limited functionality, complexity and cost of current data encryption systems. CipherMax achieves the industry's highest level of security -- 256-bit AES encryption -- to meet or exceed all current standards for data protection.

In addition to wire-speed encryption, CipherMax delivers security features to defend against network attack. A split management interface enforces a separation of duties between storage and security administrators. Security audit logs record policy violations with automatic alert notifications, and sophisticated key management ensures the ability to recover valuable data resources.

MaXXan sees CipherMax as a natural extension of its SSAP architecture.
"We've been building the SSAP as a secure platform for mission-critical storage applications since our first products shipped in 2002," said Nelson Bye, MaXXan president and chief operating officer. "CipherMax builds on the ingenious SSAP architecture, which allows us to continually develop and innovate data management applications as the needs of enterprise customers evolve and as the business climate becomes more sophisticated."
