Vaultize Addresses Cloud Security Concerns of Enterprises with Encryption at Source
Vaultize, an enterprise-class cloud-based backup, sharing and sync solution, addresses cloud security concerns of enterprises by performing encryption of data at source – on device itself. This removes a major impediment to enterprise adoption of cloud-based backup.
While all cloud-based backup solutions perform encryption at the cloud server, Vaultize encrypts data at source before it leaves the device. Vaultize is the first one to do both encryption and de-duplication together at source. “Once considered to be technologically impossible, global de-duplication and encryption together at source is now available in Vaultize,” said Anand Kekre, CEO and Co-founder of Vaultize. “Because of rapid consumerization of IT along with increase in the number of events of data leak, security compromises and privacy breaches with consumer-based cloud backup, enterprises were seriously looking for something like this.”
According to Ankur Panchbudhe – Co-founder and CTO, “Vaultize is designed from the ground-up specifically for cloud with multiple levels of end-to-end security and privacy that no other solution provides. User data is encrypted using AES 256-bit encryption on user’s device itself using customer’s keys. Then it is transferred to the Vaultize cloud using 256-bit SSL and OAuth protection. Once it reaches our cloud, an additional level of encryption is added on already encrypted data before it is stored. Vaultize cloud servers are hosted in state-of-the-art cloud of Rackspace which is SAS 70 Type II, PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and Safe harbor compliant. All this comes without loosing any benefits like global smart de-duplication and compression."
Recently, Vaultize also announced "Group Sync" – Dropbox-like file sharing and synchronization across users with enterprise-grade control and centralized administration.
Vaultize offers flexible deployment options other than its default Rackspace hosting in the US to its enterprise customers. Enterprises can choose any other public cloud provider and any different geographical location. Additionally they can choose to deploy Vaultize in their own private cloud, data center, in a virtual private cloud or hybrid.
Vaultize pricing is simple and transparent. Businesses are charged flat fee “per GB” computed on the storage consumed in cloud - calculated post de-duplication and compression. And, there is no user, device or feature licensing.
Vaultize is a flagship product from Anoosmar Technologies – a privately held and bootstrapped company with registered office in Pune (India). It is the first backup, sharing and sync solution designed from the ground-up specifically for cloud with enterprise-class SLAs. It was formally launched at INTEROP Mumbai in September last year. Vaultize was named in the select list of “Most Promising Startups of 2011 from India” by the country’s largest startup platform Pluggd.in.
The co-founders Anand Kekre (CEO) and Ankur Panchbudhe (CTO) come with technology leadership and executive management experience working previously with IBM, Veritas, Symantec, Reconnex and McAfee before starting this venture. They together hold 72 US patents.
