I’ve attended a handful of genomics/life sciences events this year, including the GET Conference and Bio-IT World, and the one of the first questions people always ask is “how secure is your storage?”
The simple fact of the matter is that Isilon storage was developed to accommodate any level of security or procedures that a company wants to place on it. Security is always driven by the core operating system and Isilon storage is protocol-agnostic, so to speak–it can work and talk with any type of security product in your data center.
Isilon partners with Vormetric, a provider of products and services to protect enterprise information from unauthorized access or theft. Isilon storage is also certified with Symantec NetBackup backup and recovery software for NDMP backup and recovery, providing enterprise customers with full interoperability with Symantec NetBackup® data protection software, as well as a range of other data protection solutions.
Of course this doesn’t just apply to life sciences, but any company implementing Isilon storage in its data center. If you’d like to learn more, connect with Isilon–we’re ready to talk through your data security needs.
