StorageASP Inc. today announced a partnership with Igloo Security, Inc. to standardize on Igloo's ESM (Enterprise Security Management) solution "SPiDER-1" for the data protection security component of their data protection suite of services at Internet Data Centres (IDC) throughout North America. In addition, the two firms will work together to develop a new suite of products specifically for the SSP marketplace.
According to the companies, SPiDER-1 is an ESM suite of products allowing security administrators to develop security audit policies, monitor logs & system resources in real time, detect and eliminate risk factors, and generate statistical reports in one package.
In addition to standardizing on SPiDER-1, StorageASP has agreed to jointly work with Igloo to develop a Data Protection Services Management Module aimed at the North American SSP marketplace. Igloo and StorageASP will work together to jointly market and sellthe new product, known as "SPiDER-xSP".
Igloo and StorageASP will provide joint guideline and specification to further develop SPiDER-xSP, based on the existingSPiDER-1 product suite. StorageASP has integrated Igloo SPiDER-1 and SPiDER-xSP within its Data Protection suite of services, commencing at the Bird On A Wire Toronto data centre, where data protection services were initiated in May 2001.
