ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dispersive Technologies, Inc. (www.dispersivetechnologies.com) today announced a new authentication feature for its Dispersive™ Storage platform.
Dispersive™ Storage is a new software tool that effectively defeats data theft and malware insertion and prevents unauthorized manipulation of stored data by dividing it into small blocks, spreading these blocks across geographically disparate areas, and periodically shuffling their locations.
The new feature will add another layer of defense to the platform by providing dynamic authentication capabilities. Dispersive™ Storage will remove random bytes from storage locations and use them to form a dynamic key that changes with each shuffling. Dispersive™ Storage, including its authentication feature, will be available later this year.
"This feature introduces a novel approach to combat the ever present and increasingly aggressive and sophisticated cyber threat," said Robert W. Twitchell, Jr., President and CEO of Dispersive Technologies. "It also demonstrates our holistic, from-the-ground up approach to networking. When companies use Dispersive™ Storage with Dispersive™ Virtualized Networks, they truly enjoy security without compromise for their data-at-rest and data-in-motion."
Dispersive™ Virtualized Networks (VNs) use any single or combination of physical connections to the Internet, commodity hardware and Dispersive software to deliver data with greater speed, tighter security and more reliability than private networks. The combination of this software platform with Dispersive™ Storage creates the Dispersive™ SDN, a software-defined network that improves the network performance for everything from SCADA and IoT devices to mobile workforces and high-end servers in the cloud.
"Many companies are used to security solutions with overhead penalties," Twitchell added. "They just assume network security and performance are mutually exclusive. Our solutions prove it's not an either-or situation. Speed, security and reliability can co-exist. And because our software works with all existing infrastructure, runs on commodity hardware, and enables the use of lower-cost bandwidth, these improvements in security and performance are typically achieved at a lower total cost."
Dispersive Technologies will exhibit at the San Francisco RSA Conference 2016 February 29-March 4 in Booth 2333 in the South Exhibit Hall. For conference details, visit www.rsaconference.com/events/us16.
