Encryption: where IT security meets IT storage

July 13, 2010

IT security and IT storage professions have always danced along if not always the same line, often closely aligned parallel lines. The convergence between security and storage is nowhere more apparent than for the Cryptographer, as encryption brings the two practices onto the same line of randomly generated 1s and 0s.

That’s why we’re pointing to a guest post by IT security journalist, Steve Gold (@stevewgold) at Countdown2StorageExpo’s sister blog www.Countdown2Infosecurity.com: “Why Quantum Computing is Transforming IT security”.

Quantum computing will no doubt impact all those whose storage lives are influenced by the need to protect through encryption technology data at rest in backups and archives or on primary storage subsystems.
