No-one else is talking about it, so allow us to start the conversation…
Commoditisation of IT hardware has created a global component market so vast it is virtually impossible to track the origins of circuitry and firmware. It has created a situation where major enterprise, infrastructure, government, and even defense and intelligence agencies are exposed to vulnerabilities.

Officially a National Emergency

The issue is real and serious. On 15 May 2019, The White House decreed a ‘National Emergency on Securing the Information and Communications Technology and Services Supply Chain.’

Security is especially critical on that vulnerable point – the network switch.

HyperSwitch is the only network switch with auditable provenance

SoftIron not only controls the entire design and build process, but manufactures and assembles all products in-house, including electronics subassemblies. As such, SoftIron can demonstrate the security of every product, and open every component to detailed audit, from silicon to software. Only SoftIron provides the foundation stone of provenance.

Freedom requires security

For our society to function freely we must ensure data security. Imagine serious breaches in any of the following sectors; Health, Banking, Education, Defense, Research, Insurance, Media, or Government Administration. Only SoftIron is delivering on the core requirement of provenance.

Why SoftIron?

Task-specific engineering that delivers power efficient performance

HyperDrive has been designed from the ground up for full interoperability with Ceph. This, combined with a form factor designed to maximise cooling efficiency, means that single racks can be densely provisioned while remaining within power limits. Filling racks in this manner, and distributing data evenly with powerful replication methods, can offer dramatic cost savings compared to traditional enterprise solutions.

Fully auditable secure provenance

Where other manufacturers opt to cut costs by outsourcing manufacture to third parties (and therefore passing on the supply chain risks to their customers) SoftIron takes the opposite approach.

SoftIron has in-house, full control over the design and manufacture of our products. Because of this, we can readily enable appliance integrity audits and system verification at a granular level by third parties.

Simplify infrastructure management tasks at any scale

Skilled network and data engineers are difficult to find, and not all organisations can afford to hire one even when they’re available.

HyperDrive addresses critical skills shortages around data infrastructure management, by simplifying common data centre administration and maintenance tasks. By using SoftIron’s products, customers can conduct many previously complex data management tasks via the dashboard provided by the HyperDrive Storage Manager, and our patented “Ceph button”.
