IBM and SpaceBelt Collaborate on Innovative Architecture for Secure Cloud Management and Storage in Space

How Data Architectures Are Evolving Beyond On-Premises and Classic Cloud to Add Another Dimension of Data Security

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- As worldwide security growth moves to more than $96 billion in 2018, Gartner is predicting an increase of eight percent from 2017 for cybersecurity investment. Organizations are spending more on security as a result of regulations, shifting buyer mindset, awareness of emerging threats and the evolution to a digital business strategy.

One of the new paradigms for security that is emerging is Cloud Constellation's SpaceBelt, a tightly managed, low-earth-orbit satellite network to securely store and manage data. More than merely a data warehouse in space, SpaceBelt's data storage platform provides for ultra-secure sovereign data storage and retrieval from most locations around the globe. IBM, with its leading cloud architecture, will work with SpaceBelt to provide another dimension to its cloud strategy.

Key points of the paper include:

  • Working Towards a More Secure Future in Data: An integrated and layered approach to accessing and storing data allows security to move beyond just on-premises or cloud solutions to highly secured data in space.
  • SpaceBelt – Securing Data in Low Earth Orbit: A LEO global network provides increased security and independence from jurisdictional control, eliminating the need for terrestrial hops and their inherent data breach vulnerability.
  • IBM as a Foundation for the Most Secure Data: IBM's Managed Security Services secure sensitive data across a full range of environments. The addition of a space-based layer beyond cloud will form the foundation for a more secure data future.

Cliff Beek, CEO and president, SpaceBelt, said: "SpaceBelt aims to align with IBM and others to deliver an ultimate data security solution, as we construct our constellation of satellites and ground facilities to begin service in 2020. We anticipate that the SpaceBelt platform, with the IBM Cloud solution, will provide a unique value to IBM's customers and ours, offering a tiered approach to security and sovereign data protection for years to come."

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
