EMC adds security startups to channel program
Despite the recent acquisition of encryption maker Decru Inc. by rival Network Appliance Inc., EMC will resell the startup's security appliance, according to an announcement today. EMC will also include the CryptoStor FC storage security appliance from NeoScale Systems Inc. and CiperOptics Inc.'s IPSec appliances on its price list under the EMC Select channel program.

Barbara Nelson, CEO and chairman of NeoScale said EMC's inclusion of Decru wasn't a surprise. "They want a broad security solution and to be sure they have product coverage … We don't provide IP-based security but Decru does, our sweet spot is the SAN environment."

OnStor's NAS gateway allowed DXP to reuse much of its existing storage, and to consolidate both block- and file-level data into a single storage environment.
