PetaSuite Protect

PetaGene has introduced PetaSuite Protect, an encryption and access-management system for genomic data. The new product system features Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit (AES-256) encryption and is compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, a security standard used by the US government. PetaSuite Protect also offers data managers the ability to grant access to specific regions of genomic data files, rather than opening up whole files to all users.
