Storage Security Becoming A Top Concern
Security and storage are starting to converge as businesses look to new ways to protect their data, according to research firm IDC.
Charles Kolodgy, research director for secure content and threat management products at IDC, said that as the value of corporate data has risen, improved security of information and information systems has jumped to fourth place in a long list of the most urgent IT improvements, an IDC survey shows.
Kolodgy was addressing a crowd of end users at the Storage Networking World conference, being held this week in San Diego.
Brian McCarthy, president and owner of Sencilo, a Lake Mary, Fla.-based storage security solution provider, said that the two topics go hand-in-hand today because of issues related to regulatory compliance.
"People are looking for better performance and higher capacity," McCarthy said. "But they are also telling us they just talked to their legal people and CIOs, and they are concerned. We don't have to sell them on storage security. They've seen the pain and read the headlines."
