BOSaNOVA Earns Storage Proven Cert from IBM

System i shops looking to boost the security of their data through the use of encryption can feel good about going with BOSaNOVA‘s Q3 encryption appliance now that the product has received the Storage Proven certification from IBM.
Q3 is a rack-mounted appliance that BOSaNOVA introduced earlier this year to help companies protect their sensitive data. The product, which sits between the server being backed up and the backup device or devices performing backups, uses dual-interlaced 3DES encryption engines that split the data into two streams that are encrypted separately using 112-bit keys.
Obtaining Storage Proven status for Q3 is critical for ensuring that things run smoothly in IBM shops, says BOSaNOVA president Martin Pladgeman. “Achieving this validation gives customers a secure encryption product to protect their data at rest proven to be compatible with IBM’s storage solutions.”
