Olympia, WA (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
Patrick Townsend Security Solutions (PTSS) today announced that it has entered into a technology partnership with Quantum Corp., the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive. In this partnership, PTSS has provided critical encryption key management technology for the Quantum Scalar tape automation product line. The encryption key management product launched earlier this quarter.
Patrick Townsend, CTO of Townsend commented, "For years we've provided encryption key management within our own software solutions. Our continued innovation and reputation for expertise in this technology has put us in a position where other great companies seek out our solutions. By working with Quantum we were able to make an encryption key management solution available to a large and wholly different market than those we've reached before."
Jim Jonez, Senior Director of Product Management for Quantum added, "While encryption is essential for securing data, managing and protecting the encryption keys is just as critical but often quite challenging for users. When we set out to design our next-gen security solutions, we wanted to deliver powerful key management while minimizing cost and complexity. After evaluating several technology approaches, we selected PTSS to help us deliver a solution that integrated seamlessly with our Scalar tape libraries and iLayer management software. We have been pleased with both the PTSS partnership and the technology."
