NATICK, Mass., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TwinStrata, Inc., an innovator in cloud-integrated storage solutions, today announced that Bit9, the leader in Trust-based Security, has made TwinStrata CloudArray the heart of its cloud-based storage strategy.


Deployed in December 2012, TwinStrata CloudArray delivers Bit9 a comprehensive and robust offsite data protection strategy across its virtualized environment. Working in conjunction with Bit9's backup provider Veeam, CloudArray supports both Bit9's headquarters and its data center with a cost-effective cloud storage environment to provide effective disaster recovery today and the flexibility to support the Bit9's anticipated future needs.

TwinStrata CloudArray's advanced security and encryption capabilities were critical to its acceptance as a viable solution for Bit9. Since Bit9's business is built on trust and security, TwinStrata's in-flight and at-rest encryption needed to meet the company's strict standards, which it did.  

"I looked into other cloud storage options – including just doing it myself – but none of the other options provided the same combination of security robustness, ease of use and performance consistency that the TwinStrata CloudArray product did," said Bill Suarez, Director, Information Technology for Bit9. "What it does isn't trivial – from presenting as a local target, to the performance-tuned cache, to regulating data flow – but it does it all easily, and it just works."                                  

Bit9 selected TwinStrata due to its ability to minimize and even eradicate the complexity, performance and security issues inherent to employing a cloud storage strategy.

"We've already had to recover from one emergency," continued Suarez. "And I'm pleased to say that it went off without a hitch."

"Many of our customers turn to TwinStrata to address today's offsite data protection needs," said Nicos Vekiarides, CEO of TwinStrata. "They find CloudArray to be the standout choice when it comes to ease-of-use, security, performance and price. But we're finding that most of our customers are also turning to us to further their cloud journey as a whole. With TwinStrata, customers not only get a solution that simplifies managing and protecting their data - they also get a foundation for additional high-value cloud services."
