ClearCube's model is helping to lead the shift towards centralized and cloud computing, but with appropriate care taken for device security
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2010
Mocana Corporation, a company that focuses on securing networked devices, today announced that ClearCube Technology, Inc. has licensed its NanoSSH ™ and NanoSSL™ technology to securely manage its centralized and virtualized computing solutions. ClearCube's solutions allow users to integrate powerful PC blade technology, cutting edge user access devices and expert professional services to give organizations comprehensive, high performance centralized computing and virtual desktop solutions. With a growing proportion of enterprise business being done on client side devices in centralized/virtualized environments, secure management is critical.
Mocana's NanoSSH and NanoSSL are embedded in ClearCube's Remote Management Module (RMM) in the chassis, centralized in a remote datacenter, to secure all communication between the RMM and ClearCube's Sentral® management software suite. Sentral and the RMM provide a wide range of management functions for virtual machines, centralized PC blades, servers, chassis, and more. Mocana's technology will help organizations leverage the power and flexibility of ClearCube's Centralized and Virtualized solutions while securing the management channels.
NanoSSL is Mocana's SSL/TLS solution designed to speed product development while providing best-in-class device security in resource-constrained environments like the thin clients used by ClearCube. NanoSSL is open-standards-based, extensible, platform-agnostic and includes an optional government-certified FIPS 140-2 level-1- validated crypto core. NanoSSL includes a full-featured key generator and certificate management client, and supports government Suite B crypto algorithms and the new RFC standard for TLS 1.2.
NanoSSH is Mocana's SSH client/server solution with support for X509.v3 certificate-based authentication and comes with RADIUS client, specifically designed to speed product development while providing best-in-class device security services for resource-constrained environments. NanoSSH provides a holistic approach for securing networked devices and services, and is ideally suited for resource-constrained devices as well as high-traffic enterprise and federal environments where performance is critical. NanoSSH is open-standards-based, extensible, extremely small footprint, platform-agnostic and features an optional government-certified FIPS 140-2 level-1-validated crypto core.
Both NanoSSH and NanoSSL solutions are GPL-free, so developers can feel confident about the long-term integrity of their intellectual property. New developers can request a free trial of Mocana products at http://www.mocana.com
"ClearCube's model is helping to lead the shift towards centralized and cloud computing, but with appropriate care taken for device security," said Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana. "The addition of heterogeneous client-side devices to this model adds another dimension to the security challenge. That's why ClearCube is using Mocana, to make sure that today's most flexible centralized computing architectures are safe for mission-critical users, like those in government. "
"One of the key value propositions of our centralized and virtualized solutions is our ability to keep the management of the different components in the system simple and secure", said Raj Mellacheruvu, Director of Engineering at ClearCube Technology. "With Mocana's technology we are able to securely communicate with our remote management modules over the network."
Mocana secures the "Internet of Things" - the 20 billion datacom, smartgrid, federal, consumer, industrial and medical devices that connect across every sector of our economy. These devices already outnumber PC's on the Internet by five to one, representing a $900 billion market that's growing twice as fast as the PC market. Every day, millions of people use products sold by over 100 companies that leverage Mocana's Device Integrity software, including Dell, Cisco, Honeywell, General Electric, General Dynamics, Avaya, Harris and Radvision, among others. Mocana won Frost & Sullivan's Technology Innovation of the Year award for 2008 for Device Security, and was named to the Red Herring Global 100 as one of the "top 100 privately-held technology companies in the world" in January 2009.
