LAS VEGAS — HyTrust today announced that its encryption and key management solution, HyTrust DataControl, is available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. Launched today with initial availability in AWS US West (Oregon) region, VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. HyTrust DataControl enables VMware Cloud on AWS customers to quickly and easily encrypt their business-critical workloads in the cloud, while maintaining control of the encryption keys, and enjoying the agility and cost benefits of hybrid cloud infrastructure.
