Storage vendors Decru and Network Appliance (NetApps) have joined forces to develop a credit-card encryption device for tape archiving, in response to an impending financial data security regulation.
Zin Navoth, marketing director for EMEA at Decru, said: “Customers are becoming aware and will turn to the handful of resellers beginning to offer a solution to encrypt storage data.”
The launch is two weeks before the arrival of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standard, which requires merchants to “render cardholder data unreadable anywhere it is stored”.
“Whenever resellers introduce security into storage there is a value-added service opportunity, whereby they take end-users by the hand and help guide them,” Navoth added.
Nigel Lambert, channel director at Zycko, said: “End-users now have their heads out of the sand and CardVault will give resellers some significant service and revenue opportunities.”
