Secure storage starts to become higher priority

As deployment of IP storage networks grows, so do the risks. Unlike Fibre Channel-based storage systems, IP storage area networks--and the data stored on them--are vulnerable to the same threats as any other IP device, from hack attacks to worms. But few customers are thinking about this problem, and only a few vendors have begun to address it.

Decru Inc. is one of them. The company next quarter will unveil an encryption appliance for the iSCSI protocol for IP networks. ISCSI converts blocks of data into standard file formats on IP networks, increasing its vulnerability. Priced around $40,000, the system helps reduce vulnerabilities using 256-bit key encryption.
