HyTrust Inc. announced enhanced capabilities for its workload security platform to support organizations with virtualized, public, private or multi-cloud environments for popular cloud technologies including Amazon Web Services, IBM, EMC, Intel, Microsoft and VMware. This release includes HyTrust DataControl 3.2 and HyTrust CloudControl 5.0, both of which address key operational and security risks facing the next generation of data center transformation. With the HyTrust platform, organizations can reduce risk, automate compliance, reduce costs and ensure availability in virtualized and cloud environments.
As software-defined data centers (SDDCs), hyper converged infrastructures, and multi-cloud environments become the building blocks for data centers, organizations must implement security solutions that allow for seamless deployment in complex public and hybrid cloud environments. At the same time, they must also protect organizational data and operationalize secure workflows. New data center build-outs often highlight security issues and the gap that often exists between the needs of infrastructure, operations and security teams. By breaking down the barriers between these teams, HyTrust eliminates alignment gaps between departments to allow security to be built into infrastructure and meet the demand for agile, secure and scalable workload deployment.
“IT environments are getting more complex. The industry has moved from a one cloud fits all to a multiple cloud approach,” said Eric Chiu, president and founder, HyTrust. “HyTrust’s workload security solutions make these fairly unexplored, multi-cloud environments a more trustworthy place for enterprises to operate. With the latest enhancements to DataControl and CloudControl, we are strengthening trust within a multi-cloud infrastructure and the SDDC, providing modern IT organizations with the solutions they need to remain secure in today’s rapidly evolving environment.”
The HyTrust workload security platform allows organizations to take full advantage of SDDC and multi-cloud environments without jeopardizing security. By providing support for leading virtualization, public cloud and hyper converged infrastructure, HyTrust assures organizations that they can deploy SDDC security controls and encryption with flexible key management across the leading cloud and virtualization platforms.
HyTrust DataControl – offers powerful encryption with easy to use, scalable key management to secure the entire compute, network and storage stack throughout its lifecycle, from deployment and migration to sanctioned decommission. It’s the only encryption/key management solution that allows an organization to dynamically encrypt and rekey virtual machines. HyTrust DataControl accelerates workload encryption by using technologies like Intel AES-NI to make encryption a transparent operation that doesn’t impede performance and availability. New capabilities in HyTrust DataControl include:
HyTrust CloudControl – the standard for advanced access controls, forensic logging and policy enforcement in VMware environments, allowing organizations to automate security and compliance requirements mandated by a broad range of industry standards including PCI-DSS, HIPAA, NIST and SOX. HyTrust CloudControl enables the use of technologies including Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) and CIT (Cloud Integrity Technology) to ensure enterprise-class controls and policy enforcement for workload integrity. New features in HyTrust CloudControl 5.0 include:
“HyTrust has been focused on securing virtualization since it’s founding. With its CloudControl and DataControl portfolio, it continues to help customers enable multi-cloud workload security for a breadth of data center platforms,” said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group.
