Sotera Networks has received $4 million from Quantum Technology Ventures and Vanguard Ventures to develop security technology specifically designed for high- speed storage networks. Sotera Networks will direct the secured capital towards product development, sales efforts and marketing of its patent-pending wire- speed security solutions for storage networks.

According to a 2000 study by the American Society for Industrial Security and Pricewaterhousecoopers, information residing in a corporate storage network is not secure. Once a hacker gains access to stored data, it is readable and useful information. xSPs, co-location providers, IT consultants and internal data managers all have visible access to sensitive digital information.

Sotera Networks says its network-level security application protects data without interfering with data management and operates with zero performance degradation. The technology will enable Secure Storage Networks to effectively store, retrieve and manage data without the ability to read the information. By utilizing multiple wire- speed SSNs, corporations can truly globalize their organization through a secure, unified view of all corporate information.
