SecludIT certifies the security excellence of Scality’s Cloud Storage Software
San Francisco, CA – July 16th, 2012
Scality, a leading developer of storage infrastructure software, today announced that RING, its high performance object storage solution – has received SecludIT’s security certification for its Storage as a Service infrastructure package – including the RS2 (REST Storage Service) connector.
SecludIT, a security software and consulting firm, recently studied Scality RING production configurations to analyze and inspect the security properties of the RING platform.
SecludIT analyzed and stress tested several Scality RING StaaS production environments for 3 months. They ran a variety of intrusive tests designed to detect security issues. Among tools and methods used for this study, SecludIT used vulnerability assessment tools such as the Elastic Detector and evaluated the SNIA Best Current Practices.
“We are intimately familiar with many cloud platforms. We were impressed by the quality of the Scality platform at the security level. The solution is rock solid and tamper proof in terms of data isolation, intrusion resilience and information leakage. We didn’t find any vulnerabilities and we can guarantee the comprehensive security of the Scality RING.” said Sergio Loureiro, CEO and co-founder of SecludIT.
“SecludIT’s certification is very meaningful to us and to the industry in general. Its security partnerships with Amazon Web Services, VMware and HP Cloud illustrate its widely recognized leadership position in the cloud ecosystem and the value of its data.” said Philippe Nicolas, Director of Product Strategy.
Jérôme Lecat, CEO of Scality, added: “Security is a major inhibitor to cloud adoption. The cost and operational efficiencies of large scale shared infrastructure are inescapable, whether for public or private clouds, but concerns about security have limited the growth of cloud in enterprise, and they have to be addressed. Scality has always been committed to delivering an infrastructure to the highest standards of security. Having our design and implementation audited allows us to prove it! This new 3rd party report provides valuable data points to those seeking the safest choice for large scale cloud platforms.”
