Atempo Introduces Security and Compliance Manager 2.0 and VMware Support in New Release of Time Navigator
Atempo Expands Product Capabilities in Security and VMware Markets
Time Navigator Security and Compliance Manager
Time Navigator Security and Compliance Manager (SCM) is a software-based storage security tool with comprehensive features, including digital signatures, hierarchical key management, audit trails, compliance templates, file encryption and decryption, and network encryption and decryption. SCM is the only storage security solution integrated into data protection software that offers advanced security features beyond just encryption to protect against eavesdropping, tampering and impersonation. Originally designed as a turn-key storage security solution, Version 2.0 of Security and Compliance Manager expands the product’s capabilities to also include integration with customers’ existing security infrastructures. Customers now have the option to utilize their own Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) and crypto-libraries or use the PKIs and crypto-libraries provided in SCM.
“Serious fines, penalties and negative press coverage are compelling companies to demonstrate consistent enforcement of privacy and records retention policies,” said Vivian Gopico-Tero, senior research analyst, compliance infrastructure at IDC. “Products like Atempo’s Security and Compliance Manager offer solutions that help organizations meet these evolving retention, data protection and security compliance demands in a safe and timely manner.”
Time Navigator Security and Compliance Manager 2.0 features:
· OpenSSL Standards. The latest version of SCM is based on the OpenSSL library, an advanced and reliable library that offers the industry’s leading security tools. OpenSSL implements the Secure Sockets Layer and Transport Layer Security protocols for secure network communications and includes a general purpose cryptography.
· Easy Integration into Existing Security Infrastructures. SCM 2.0 supports the X509v3 standard for digital certificates, as well as Personal Information Exchange Syntax (PKCS#12), and facilitates interoperability between Time Navigator and existing Public Key Infrastructures. SCM can use digital certificates from existing PKIs, or can export its own certificates for use within other applications.
“In light of recent security breaches, lost tapes and stolen computers, organizations are realizing that simply backing up data is not enough; strong encryption and security features need to be integrated into the data protection architecture,” said Marylise Tauzia, director of product marketing at Atempo. “SCM provides multiple layers of security beyond encryption tied to the business value and business processes of an organization’s data.”
Time Navigator for VMware
Time Navigator 4.1 includes new support of VMware ESX Servers. The VMware ESX Server is a virtualization layer between the hardware and operating system of a physical server that partitions a server into multiple virtual machines, each with their own processors, memory, networking and storage resources. Time Navigator for VMware provides comprehensive data protection for customers’ VMware virtual machines and ESX Servers and features an intuitive restore interface with an easy-to-use disaster recovery procedure.
Time Navigator for VMware is designed as a complement to the standard Time Navigator backup agent installed on each virtual machine. Using VMware snapshot technology, Time Navigator can backup entire virtual machines without interrupting the work on these machines and can restore a complete virtual machine or just one disk. The restore interface provides administrators with a graphical view of all ESX Servers and virtual machines, with no need to install or configure complex scripts. In a few mouse clicks, administrators can quickly restore data with Time Navigator’s unique VMware GUI.
Key features of Time Navigator for VMware include:
· Full Support of ESX. This includes server backups, virtual machine backups and support of VMFS.
· User-friendly Restore Interface. No need to install or configure complex scripts.
· Platform-independent Archive Module. For long-term data retention and regulatory compliance.
· Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape Backups. Backup the VMware ESX Server data to disk, then to tape for the most efficient backup architecture.
· Advanced Reporting. For monitoring backup and recovery activities and performance.
“We are committed to delivering elegant, practical and comprehensive solutions to our strategic markets,” said Tauzia. “Our new support of VMware ESX Servers brings the advantages of Time Navigator’s data protection and archiving capabilities to virtualization: centralized management across heterogeneous hardware platforms, operating systems, storage devices and applications; fast data recovery; and a user-friendly GUI to replace scripts.”
