  • 27 March, 2007 12:10

<p>Poll Shows NetApp is #1 in Storage Security Deployments and #1 Planned for Purchase among Top Enterprises</p>
<p>AUSTRALIA, Sydney – 27 March 2007 — Decru®, a NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) company, today announced that its storage security solutions have been ranked number one in a poll of Fortune 1000 firms conducted by research firm TheInfoPro (TIP). The TIP Information Security Wave 8 Study, released in February 2007, incorporates in-depth interviews of approximately 150 Fortune 1000 and 60 midsize enterprise decision-makers. According to TIP, respondents cited NetApp, incorporating Decru solutions, as the number one storage security vendor “in use” and “in plan” for purchase.*</p>
<p>Other TIP survey findings include the following:</p>
<p>* The NetApp combined “in use” and “in plan” rating was more than three times higher than the nearest direct competitor solution for storage security. The storage security category includes technology elements such as access controls, file, block and tape encryption, auditing and permanent data deletion.
* Enterprise customers ranked access controls and encryption in their top five security projects for the next 12 onths.
* In the data encryption category, NetApp/Decru security solutions ranked among the top five “in use” and “in plan” vendor offerings.</p>
<p>Bill Trussell, managing director of information security for TheInfoPro, said, “Storage security has emerged as an important category for TheInfoPro’s TIPNetwork of Fortune 1000 users, and end users are getting savvier about requirements such as enterprise-wide interoperability, access controls and key management. The results of Information Security Wave 8 show Decru solutions in a clear market leadership position for enterprise storage security.”</p>
<p>In recent years, enterprise and government customers have come under tremendous regulatory and business pressure to secure confidential customer data and intellectual property. This task has been complicated by the nature of the enterprise data infrastructure, which incorporates a wide variety of applications, operating systems, networks, and storage vendors.</p>
<p>Decru is the first and only vendor to offer a full range of storage security appliances, enabling a unified security approach across legacy and new storage systems including NAS, DAS, IP SAN, Fibre Channel SAN, and tape backup environments. Decru solutions, including Decru DataFort® security appliances and the Decru Lifetime Key Management™ system, automate and simplify storage security for heterogeneous enterprise environments. The Decru platform combines encryption, authentication, access controls, auditing, and policy management to provide enterprise-wide security for data at rest.</p>
<p>“A lot of vendors are offering new encryption features, and that’s good, but enterprise customers are increasingly looking to the experts to get storage security right,” said Kevin Brown, vice president of marketing at Decru, a NetApp Company. “We’re pleased that TheInfoPro’s research findings match our own experience in the market. We feel that the unique advantages of Decru – strong financial backing, broad product portfolio, and support for multivendor environments – provide customers the best solutions to meet their long-term storage security needs from a proven storage security leader.”</p>
