The encryption conglomerate known has PGP
has recently added another tool to its suite, one that will allow data flowing from or to a NAS/SAN or other network storage device to be encrypted
. The new technology, called NetShare, is designed to fit in to existing networks and use a client key / master key scenario, where the users don't need to have any particular interaction with the software, and a master key can decrypt files if needed. Per unit, NetShare will be going for $149, and is yet another piece of data security that is becoming increasingly more important. PGP hopes that companies will be attracted to it as another piece of protection, being that stories of a company having huge amounts of data stolen from it (often personal information about their customers) are becoming common, almost too such.
