Pi DATACENTERS implements data center encryption with new partnership

26 Jul 2018

Pi DATACENTERS has announced a partnership with Ziroh Labs.

Headquartered in Andhra Pradesh, India, Pi boasts Asia’s largest Uptime Institute TIER IV Certified Data Center, with the company partnering with Ziroh Labs to implement practical homomorphic encryption at its greenfield data center.

Ziroh Labs is a cybersecurity company mentored and accelerated by Israeli technology experts at MassChallenge.

"Ziroh Labs is very excited to be partnering with Pi DATACENTERS. While unlimited storage, capacity, high computational power and connectivity driven engagement have been the historic pillars of the digital economy, now the fourth pillar of security and confidentiality is becoming very important globally,” says Ziroh Labs CEO and co-founder Bhaskar Medhi.

“India too is currently working on its own data protection framework. It is the sign of a maturing, technology ecosystem. Pi DATACENTERS' superior infrastructure and Ziroh Labs cutting-edge cloud security technology is a win for the end users.”

According to Pi, this partnership distinguishes the company as one of the very few worldwide – and the first in India – to have privacy preserving homomorphic encryption enabled over the network across its data centers.

The company asserts this move is an affirmation of its goal to provide quality security and confidentiality to its customers.

OStor is the flagship product from Ziroh Labs and as part of the partnership has been deployed in Pi’s end-to-end infrastructure to boost privacy to its customer data.

Enterprises hosted with Pi will be able to take advantage of this technology with secured workloads in addition to runtime encryption, at-rest encryption, and in-transit encryption to ensure the security of data for its entire lifecycle.

"At Pi, we aim to deliver futuristic data center and cloud solutions with a disruptive approach to infrastructure, technology and security,” says Pi DATACENTERS chief operating officer Bhaskar Vadlamani.

“OStor from Ziroh Labs complements our vision of ensuring best standards of security, to our customers. We are very happy to work with a deep tech enterprise from India with global standards.”
