OTTAWA, June 20, 2013 /CNW/ - To take advantage of the benefits of the expanding role of the network, AFORE Solutions today announced that its CloudLink® Secure VSA Release 2.0.1 has successfully completed interoperability verification testing* with the Cisco ISR G2/UCS-E Series as a Cisco Cloud Connector.
AFORE's CloudLink Secure VSA resolves security concerns for enterprises wanting to leverage the cloud for mission critical workloads and data while meeting security regulatory compliance requirements such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and SOX. The CloudLink solution encrypts data at-rest, and in-motion, in multi-tenant virtualized and cloud environments via a software-defined, secure, virtual storage approach. With CloudLink Secure VSA as a Cisco Cloud Connector on Cisco IRS G2/UCS-E, the solution empowers enterprises to have complete control of their sensitive data in public clouds, including Amazon AWS™ and Microsoft Azure™ or VMware vCloud™. Further, CloudLink allows enterprises to maintain control of encryption keys and security policies and supports the secure cloud federation by leveraging existing key management capabilities on-premise. CloudLink also enables Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to securely deliver cloud infrastructure service, cloud storage service, cloud backup and DR services to the enterprise while utilizing Cisco ISR/UCS-E as a service delivery point. The CloudLink solution is application agnostic, supporting all storage systems and working over existing WAN infrastructure.
"We're pleased to be recognized as a verified member of the Cisco Developer Network" said James LaPalme, VP Sales & Marketing. "Securing and control of sensitive data is a key issue for enterprises deploying into a public, private or hybrid cloud. Working together with Cisco, AFORE's CloudLink bring a dynamic Cloud Security solution fully integrated with the Cisco industry's leading service delivery point. We look forward to broadening our relationship with Cisco in the future."
