Application security specialist Ingrian Networks has developed a technology to offload encryption functions from application or database servers onto appliances with the aim of providing more robust security for data in storage.

    Ingrian, which made its name marketing hardware platforms to speed up the processing of SSL, secure caching, and secure switching (securing data in transit - a market that has become commoditised), has developed software service engines to secure data in storage as well. It calls this technology Network Attached Encryption.

    In trying to lock-down data in storage from prying eyes, hackers, and malicious attack, companies have turned to encryption technologies to secure their applications and data. But traditional encryption technologies require some re-writing of applications, and place a heavy load on servers. There's also the issues of keys residing on the same server where applications are running, which Ingrian argues poses a security risk.
