Israeli startup Porticor launched this week with a new solution designed to help enterprises ensure data security in the cloud.

"Porticor Virtual Private Data is focused on protecting data at rest in cloud-based computing centers where customers rent disk space or servers, says Gilad Parann-Nissany, Porticor's co-founder and CEO," writes ITworld's Ellen Messmer.

"The standard encryption offered is AES 256 or Blowfish, with a maximum key length of 2048 bits," Messmer writes. "Porticor is operating a Virtual Key Management Service, with pricing ranging from $27.50 per month to about $411 based on volume."
