On February 09, 2023, NetApp, a global cloud-led, datacentric software announced the upcoming availability of the NetApp AFF C-Series, a new line of capacity flash storage options that provides low-cost all-flash storage, and NetApp AFF A150 is a new entry-level storage system in the family of all-flash systems of AFF A-Series which is ideal for Mid-size business and Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO).

The new NetApp AFF C-Series has flash performance while being cost-effective and efficient. This signifies that the total cost of ownership (TCO) is lower, and there is less space needed for storage. This family of capacity flash arrays is also available with ONTAP One, an all-in-one license that includes all NetApp software. ONTAP One is one of the most complete software suites on the market. Customers can modernize their data center by choosing the right storage (capacity flash, performance flash, or hybrid) for their VMware, database, and file workloads. This storage runs on NetApp ONTAP, and for a seamless hybrid cloud, the experience is managed centrally by NetApp BlueXP.

Additionally, NetApp announced its new portfolio storage program NetApp Advance, which assures best-in-class delivery for customer ownership experience and on-premises environments for future cost-effectiveness. This further gives customers flexibility and allows them to safeguard their storage investment from the C-Series, AFF A150, FAS systems, or other newly acquired AFFs. Furthermore, NetApp confirms that workload efficiency goals are fulfilled, or NetApp will fix this at no cost to the customer. 

The NetApp AFF C-Series, comprised of the AFF C400, AFF C250, and AFF C800, provides guaranteed storage efficiency to improve an organization's storage, seamless scalability on-premises for performance, and best-in-class security with ransomware protection to keep critical data safe, protected, and available.

NetApp Advance is now available, and the NetApp AFF C-Series family and NetApp AFF A150 will be in March 2023. Additionally, in Q4 FY'23, NetApp, and Cisco plan to add these storage options to FlexPod, the best-integrated infrastructure solution on the market.

Eclypsium Launches Supply Chain Security Platform for Enterprise Infrastructure

businesswire | April 26, 2023

RSA Conference-- Eclypsium®, the digital supply chain security company protecting enterprises’ critical hardware, firmware, and software, today announced the release of its Supply Chain Security Platform. The new platform enables an organization’s IT security and operations teams to continuously identify and monitor the bill of materials, integrity and vulnerability of components and system code in each device, providing insight into the overall supply chain risk to the organization. One unique capability in the platform is the SBOM (Software Bill of Materials) generated for each component and system code in enterprise devices which provides an industry-standard format for visibility into components and dependencies comprising a device’s technology, verifying integrity and monitoring for critical risks. “There are unique challenges that come with understanding the underlying risks of the digital supply chain,” said Yuriy Bulygin, CEO and Co-Founder of Eclypsium. “There is an innate lack of visibility into an organization’s IT infrastructure when the very nature of third, fourth, and nth party relationships cause a dramatic increase in security risk. It’s extremely difficult for security teams to take an independent and consistent approach to verifying the integrity and security posture of software, firmware and components in their devices. It is critical that enterprises be able to standardize this approach across their technology supply chain eliminating blind trust in their vendors and manufacturers. This is why we built the Eclypsium Supply Chain Security Platform.” Today’s supply chains have grown significantly in size and complexity. The attack surface has expanded exponentially with the increased reliance on third-party vendors and components, and organizations face more blind spots than ever. In 2022, the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report cited supply chain as responsible for over 60% of system intrusion incidents. Data breaches resulting from supply chain attacks have grown so rapidly that they have now surpassed the number of malware-based compromises by 40%, according to the 2022 Data Breach Report by the Identity Theft Resource Center. The number of entities targeted by supply chain attacks increased 235% from 2021 to 2022. Eclypsium has long offered a security solution purpose-built to identify, verify, and fortify the critical system code within enterprise infrastructure and devices. The Eclypsium Supply Chain Security Platform includes capabilities to verify the bill of materials (SBOM), integrity and mitigate supply chain security risk in infrastructure devices and equipment enterprises rely upon, below the surface of applications. Providing end-to-end protection for the underlying components of enterprise infrastructure and devices, Eclypsium’s platform equips businesses with the tools and insights needed to secure the digital supply chains against disruptions, data loss, and other costly risks of cyberattack. ABOUT ECLYPSIUM Eclypsium’s cloud-based platform provides digital supply chain security for critical software, firmware and hardware in enterprise infrastructure. Eclypsium helps enterprises and government agencies mitigate risks to their infrastructure from complex technology supply chains.
