We have created an architecture for data that changes the game.
(PRWEB) September 28, 2010
The New York Times recently reported that cloud computing is not being adopted as quickly in Europe as in other parts of the world because of European Commission privacy laws that place rigid limits on the movement of information beyond the borders of the 27-country European Union. Industry lobbyists are working to loosen and streamline existing laws on international data transfer to permit the eventual creation of a comprehensive, workable, global privacy framework that is consistent, flexible, transparent and principles-based. Cloud Ventures, a Canadian consultancy incubating Canadian Cloud technology, is forwarding a technology company Esotera that has a technology which solves the data privacy concerns of European countries in a single sweep.
Tom Chalker, president of Esotera Secure Storage Solutions, explains: "We have created a distributed architecture of anonymous encrypted data blocks that changes the game. The issue of physical security within jurisdictional boundaries is replaced with the simpler concept of security by statistical probability. Legally, this is similar to regulations in the medical field. Laws exist because statistics prove that diseases can be more effectively controlled through widespread immunization rather than by simply isolating the carriers of disease."
Cloud Ventures is endorsing this solution as part of their 'Trusted Cloud' R&D initiative. The Esotera solution uses the mathematics of cryptology to store blocks of data alongside millions of other indistinguishable blocks to present a modern 'needle in the haystack' problem for potential attackers. The data is protected by very large numbers. The attacker must make billions of billions of guesses to compromise any one file.
Cloud Ventures, director Neil McEvoy, comments on the promise of the technology: Trusted Clouds represent the combination of privacy, audit best practices and Cloud security technologies that will be required for widespread adoption of Cloud Computing, with governments playing a key role in establishing as well as using them.
Esotera is a key piece of this jigsaw because so much critical information, like citizen customer data, is stored through 'unstructured' as well as structured content, indeed due to social media tools like Microsoft Sharepoint it is proliferating wildly in an uncontrolled manner. Organizations need consistent information protection applied equally on their PCs and laptops as well as their Cloud applications, and Trusted Clouds will offer a variety of personal and server storage options perfect for this requirement.
By moving quickly to fast-track ventures like Esotera and pioneer the integration of privacy laws, Cloud technologies and government outsourcing initiatives, Canada can fire up an entrepreneurial 'rapid response' team to establish the country as a leader in this emergent foundation to the new Digital Economy.
