NordLocker, a Nord Security encrypted cloud storage service provider, has introduced a business offering to give enterprises throughout the globe with top-notch data security.

We introduced NordLocker as a robust file encryption tool in 2019. Since then, the product has undergone a few solid development phases and is now positioned as an end-to-end encrypted cloud storage option with a file encryption solution. It was only natural for us to move forward and launch an encrypted cloud service for business clients to offer a secure, convenient, and cost-effective way to store and manage their data.”

Aivaras Vencevicius, head of product at NordLocker.


The admin panel available in NordLocker Cloud for Business is a centralized solution that allows corporate administrators to manage all users in one location. Admin features include license distribution and role and access control at the moment. In addition, user activity logs, account and file recovery, and user groups will all be available shortly.

Lock Share is a feature that enables NordLocker business customers to safely share whole lockers (protected files) with employees both inside and outside their company. It’s as easy as entering in the recipient’s email address. Currently, the capability is only accessible to NordLocker Business subscribers.

“Launching a business product is a big step for NordLocker. We are very happy about onboarding our first corporate clients who’ve been with us all along and finally received a tailored solution to keep their business files secure in an even more convenient way. Our future plans include expanding Admin Panel functionalities with different user management and activity log features, organization-wide security settings, SSO, and other enterprise-level attributes. Our main focus is to provide business admins with tools to ensure end-to-end security of their corporate data,” says Aivaras Vencevicius.

Virtana Unveils CloudMonitor: Delivering Cloud-Based Centralized Visibility for Hybrid, Multi-Vendor, and Multi-Cloud Infrastructure Environments

Prnewswire | May 17, 2023

Virtana, a leading technology provider accelerating hybrid infrastructure innovation with artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps), announced today the release of Virtana CloudMonitor. This new product capability reduces the complexity of monitoring and managing hybrid IT environments across on-premises, colocation, and public cloud workloads. This offering further expands Virtana's leadership presence in a new segment defined by Gartner called Digital Platform Conductor (DPC) tools1. DPC tools are core to IT operations management (ITOM), a market Gartner estimates to be approximately $39 billion2. Virtana CloudMonitor revolutionizes how businesses obtain an end-to-end SaaS-based global panoramic view of their hybrid infrastructure, enabling them to get the most out of their multi-vendor computing, networking, storage, cloud, virtual machines (VM), containers, databases, and more in hybrid and multi-cloud IT infrastructure environments. With CloudMonitor, customers realize rapid improvements to mean-time-to-detect (MTTD), decreasing their mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) by an average of 90%. CloudMonitor also helps organizations make better decisions about their infrastructure investments and ensure they have adequate capacity to support growth and performance without sacrificing IT budgets. As more organizations adopt a hybrid infrastructure approach to their IT infrastructure, managing performance and capacity requirements in the silo of a specific workload is no longer feasible. IT leaders want a single platform that automatically discovers what is within their global estate, allowing them to gain accurate and real-time insights into the health of their overall environment. Given the multiple vendors that IT leaders work with to develop their infrastructure, they also look to implement a streamlined IT operational model and reduce the number of tools they use to manage that infrastructure. In addition, organizations are focused on proactively planning capacity requirements that empower them to invest in what they need to accelerate business growth while staying within budget. CloudMonitor addresses these needs by providing organizations with a global view of their estate, including the leading hyperscalers, and delivers insights as a part of the Virtana SaaS platform. With CloudMonitor, organizations can now stream data, including usage rates and alarm occurrences for applications, from multiple infrastructure types, eliminating individual data silos and simplifying how IT leaders monitor their hybrid environment. With Virtana's unified CloudMonitor solution, IT leaders can: Detect which parts of their infrastructure support their mission-critical applications, thereby identifying their most critical infrastructure. Proactively plan for capacity needs and avoid overprovisioning hardware infrastructure by purchasing what they need, reducing infrastructure spend by approximately 15%. Provide centralized visibility and management of an organization's entire on-premises infrastructure. Reduce mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) by an average of 95%, empowering IT to discover and correct anomalies before they become issues. Up-level alarm occurrence data for each application and components related to an application. Enable faster mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) by an average of 90%, so critical applications can stay available for longer periods of time. "The extension of Virtana Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) with CloudMonitor provides our customers with an unmatched solution that delivers a centralized, panoramic view of their hybrid, multi-vendor, and multi-cloud infrastructure. With CloudMonitor, our technology partners and channels can accelerate their as-a-service offerings as enterprise customers strive to innovate and succeed in highly complex multi-vendor and multi-cloud environments," said Kash Shaikh, President and CEO of Virtana. Kash added, "CloudMonitor accelerates the rate businesses can innovate within their competitive industries and helps simplify and optimize their hybrid-platform environment. This new capability gives our customers unparalleled panoramic observability across on-premises and public clouds, making it easier than ever to get more from their existing infrastructure." In addition to the release of CloudMonitor, Virtana continues to demonstrate its expertise in Kubernetes management. Virtana helps organizations more effectively manage Kubernetes with a suite of tools designed to provide visibility, control, and cost optimization over their Kubernetes and container environments. This allows businesses to optimize their hybrid cloud environments and achieve better performance, costs, reliability, and security.

Couchbase Launches ISV Starter Factory on AWS to Accelerate Application Development on Capella

Prnewswire | May 05, 2023

Couchbase, Inc. (NASDAQ: BASE), the cloud database platform company, today announced the Couchbase Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Starter Factory. The new program supports ISVs with additional tools and resources required to build and monetize their applications with Couchbase Capella™ Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Couchbase and AWS have invested resources into the ISV Starter Factory including technical proof-of-value workshops, proofs of concept (PoCs), training, certifications, best practices and aligning System Integrators (SIs) that are part of the AWS Partner Network program. The unique combination of a cloud database vendor, cloud services provider and select SIs provides an end-to-end program for ISVs that streamlines ISV migration efforts to Capella on AWS. The ISV Starter Factory builds on the momentum from Couchbase's recently enhanced ISV Partner Program in conjunction with Couchbase's expanded relationship with AWS, which offers customers integrated go-to-market activities, commercial incentives and technology integrations including support for migrating workloads to the Capella offering on AWS. "With Capella on AWS, we benefit from lower total cost of ownership and increased efficiency for our development team. The cost savings, ease of use and scalability of Capella on AWS allows us to perform frequent software releases so we can stay ahead of competitors while exceeding our customer expectations," said Mike Orlando, CEO at Yapstone. "With the launch of the ISV Starter Factory, app builders will now be able to leverage benefits such as custom PoCs and specialized training and certifications in a programmatic manner to give their application a fast start to monetization. This will help developers to locate the resources needed to quickly and easily build applications that deliver immense value to their customers." According to a McKinsey study, companies with high developer velocity grew revenue four to five times faster than those with low velocity. For ISVs, developing market-leading apps that need to evolve rapidly can be difficult. Adding features and increasing differentiation can be at the expense of developer agility when the database does not perform or scale to meet their needs. Additionally, some vendors provide limited services for ISVs, which are typically disaggregated and can end up creating more roadblocks for their development teams. Couchbase's ISV Starter Factory reduces this complexity, making it easier to modernize and migrate apps. It is a single place for organizations looking for a developer-friendly solution to build applications. Capella also addresses challenges around cloud infrastructure and migration services. Couchbase's flexible and cost-efficient cloud database Capella, paired with AWS's scale and compute power, allows ISVs to establish and expand their business at a compellingly low total cost of ownership. Customers' development speed and agility are also enhanced as Capella enables teams to consolidate their solutions — saving time and budget. Carol Potts, Head of North America Independent Software Vendor and Digital Native Business Segments at AWS, said, "In today's digital economy, applications are the modern framework for all commerce. We are delighted to be working with Couchbase to help customers build modern applications that are always on and can extend anywhere — from cloud to edge to mobile and IoT devices and anywhere in between." Couchbase ISV partners can take advantage of the capabilities of Capella and Capella App Services on AWS, including: SQL-like experience for modern applications: With a familiar foundation, developers aren't required to learn new coding languages and processes, which helps close the skills gap. Securely sync data from any cloud to the edge: Capella App Services allows developers to store, query, search and analyze data in the cloud, at the edge or on IoT devices regardless of internet connectivity and speed. This enables applications that are always fast and always on. Multi-data models: Capella makes development faster and easier by providing multiple services within one platform including document, key-value, full-text search and eventing. "As part of our growing momentum with AWS, we're excited to equip our ISV partners with industry-leading resources to help propel their application development journeys forward, turning theory into action," said Matt McDonough, senior vice president of business development and strategy at Couchbase. "Support from AWS and participating SIs enables our ISV Starter Factory to provide ISVs with programmatic support to productionize and monetize their applications with faster time to market."
