HyTrust Expands the Availability of Its Security Solutions for VMware Cloud Provider Program Partners

HyTrust made moves to broaden security and compliance offerings for VMware Cloud Provider Program Partners with further integration of HyTrust solutions and VMware vCloud Director® (vCD). This enhanced offering builds on HyTrust's existing integration with NSX® and vCenter® with the ability to include discrete vCloud Director driven workload encryption for vCloud Director tenants. The solution utilizes Intel® Xeon® processors hardware-based security technologies to assist with the current needs of VMware Cloud Provider Program Partners who are committed to providing secure and regulatory compliant cloud offerings to their customers.

As customers move to public and hybrid cloud environments, VMware Cloud Provider Program Partners must ensure a level of data security that allows them to achieve scale efficiencies and to operate in today's round-the-clock business environment. HyTrust, leveraging Intel technology, delivers critical partner services through regulatory compliance automation, unplanned outage prevention, data breach prevention across clouds and the enablement of new partner revenue streams, such as: Data Sovereignty, Data Geo-Fencing-As-A-Service, and Compliant Cloud Services.

With the new VMware vCloud Director for Service Provider integration, HyTrust provides a level of security and trust that enables the following:
