GuardTime, Joyent Team On Enhanced Trust, Integrity In Cloud

Joyent customers will be able to purchase GuardTime SmartMachines

Singapore and San Francisco, CANovember 15, 2010 Joyent, a leading global provider of cloud computing solutions, and GuardTime, creator of the patented Keyless Signature technology used to validate the worlds data, today announced a partnership that delivers unprecedented security enabling enterprises to safeguard some of their most valuable assets in the cloud: code, logs and data.

GuardTime's Keyless Signatures provide proof of signing authority, time of the signature, and integrity of all data located in the cloud. The signature never expires and its verification is based solely on mathematics, eliminating the need for secrets, keys, or human intervention.

As part of this partnership, Joyent customers will be able to purchase GuardTime SmartMachines, which will allow organizations to:

- Secure an application by signing its gold master code, preventing compromised applications from executing

- Safeguard the SmartMachines logs (e.g. administrative, policy, configuration, or events), making accidental changes or malicious tampering impossible to conceal

- Protect data backups, turning private and public cloud storage into safe, tamper-evident archives

"This unique partnership delivers unparalleled security and authenticity that has never before been achieved in a massively-scaled cloud environment," said Jason Hoffman, founder and chief scientist of Joyent. "Organizations now have access to a solution based upon a mathematically driven model that cannot be compromised by human error or breached by cyber miscreants."

"The integration of our unique Keyless Signature technology within the Joyent SmartMachine gives organizations the unprecedented opportunity to trust their applications, logs, and data in the cloud," said Mike Gault, CEO of GuardTime. "We are thrilled to be joining forces with Joyent to provide independently-verifiable proof of operating integrity in the cloud for both cloud-based service providers and cloud-consuming institutions around the world."

The partnership was made possible by Singapores Infocomm Investments Pte Ltd (IIPL), which brought the two companies together. IIPL is also an investor in GuardTime. Dr Kuo-Yi Lim, Chief Executive Officer of IIPL, said: "The GuardTime-Joyent solution addresses a key security concern on the public, private or hybrid cloud. We believe that this collaboration will bring security in cloud computing to a new level and in turn spur the development of the cloud computing industry in Singapore."

The GuardTime SmartMachine will be available in December, 2010.
