VMware to Resell HyTrust Data Encryption and Key Management

Solutions Will Support Data Security and Compliance; Enable Enterprise Migration to Hybrid Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO – April 21, 2015 – HyTrust Inc., the Cloud Security Automation Company, today announced that HyTrust DataControl® encryption and key management software will be sold by VMware to support encryption in vCloud Air, VMware’s hybrid cloud platform. HyTrust’s leading solution offers a significant advance in security by enabling VMware customers to secure data across wide-ranging virtual workloads in private and hybrid clouds, while retaining ownership of keys and enabling policy-based key management. HyTrust DataControl has already achieved VMware Ready vCloud Air status by going through technical validation within the vCloud Air environment, and is supported on VMware vCloud Air. In addition, HyTrust is in the Elite tier of the vCloud Air ISV program and listed on the VMware Solution Exchange.

HyTrust DataControl offers encryption and key management that’s designed specifically to address the unique requirements of private, hybrid and public clouds. It keeps data on virtual machines secure throughout its lifecycle–from deployment and migration through sanctioned decommission. HyTrust also offers strong and easy-to-deploy key management, ensuring that regardless of where data resides—whether in private or public clouds—organizations always retain control over their keys.

HyTrust DataControl encryption can be deployed in seconds, and offers the ability to initially encrypt or re-key data without taking applications or servers offline. This is a significant competitive advantage in an operating environment where regulators continue to augment data security compliance requirements, since DataControl can be leveraged instantly to support mandates such as PCI DSS 3.0, HIPAA/HITECH, CJIS, FedRAMP, and Data Sovereignty/Data Residency. Unlike whole disk encryption, which leaves all data unprotected whenever it is read from disk, HyTrust DataControl is purpose-built for virtualized, multi-tenant infrastructures and automatically keeps data encrypted and protected as virtual machines are copied and moved.

“By using HyTrust DataControl on vCloud Air, enterprises can leverage a single system for data encryption that spans private, hybrid and vCloud Air deployments. This dramatically simplifies cloud migration while maintaining strong data security and supporting compliance,” said Jim Gannon, senior vice president of Business Development at HyTrust. “At the same time, HyTrust DataControl encryption is easy to deploy and manage, and supports the mobility of today’s dynamic clouds. HyTrust also incorporates highly-available policy-based key management for a turnkey security system.”

“HyTrust’s high quality encryption and key management technology will provide a simple solution for customer-managed encryption on vCloud Air. Customers can be confident that they alone control their data encryption lifecycle on vCloud Air, and can manage that as one policy across vCloud Air and their existing data centers,” said Mathew Lodge, vice president, Cloud Services, VMware. “With high levels of security and flexibility, HyTrust DataControl on vCloud Air will be beneficial to a wide range of organizations.”

HyTrust DataControl will be available on vCloud Air in June 2015.
