HyTrust Boosts Workload Security

HyTrust Inc. has added 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. The releases, HyTrust DataControl 3.2 and HyTrust CloudControl 5.0, are intended to address data center complexity.

The industry has moved from a one cloud fits all to a multiple cloud approach, said Eric Chiu, president and founder for HyTrust. “HyTrust 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 enables 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 being “any-cloud ready,” meaning it can be deployed, managed and run in any type of cloud environment, whether private, public or hybrid.
