HyTrust to Showcase Data Protection and Compliance Solutions at VMworld Barcelona 2018

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HyTrust announced today that it will showcase its data privacy, security and compliance solutions alongside IBM at VMworld Barcelona 2018 on November 5 – 9. HyTrust and IBM will partner to demonstrate their joint solution IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization, along with HyTrust KeyControl, the enterprise key management solution for VMware vSAN and vSphere encryption, in IBM’s booth #D309.

With one simple deployment, IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization customers receive the value of the VMware Cloud Foundation, Intel TXT-enabled hardware, and HyTrust’s security and compliance suite, all running in the IBM Cloud.

According a recent study from Gartner, worldwide spending on cloud software is expected to grow at more than 22 percent this year, compared to six percent for other types of software.[i] Another Gartner survey recently found that 88 percent of CIOs have implemented new cybersecurity technologies in the past 12 months or plan to do so in the next 12 months.[ii]

HyTrust KeyControl is the key management solution of choice for Hyper Converged Infrastructure platforms including Dell EMC VxRail and VxRack and is validated as ‘VMware Ready’ for vSAN and vSphere encryption. Cloud service providers, system integrators, distributors and resellers can visit IBM booth #D309 to learn how to leverage HyTrust to provide encryption-as-a-service, secure multi-tenancy and other secure and compliant solutions to their own customers.

“As the data center evolves and data fluidity increases, it becomes more challenging to find the security solution that strikes the right balance between security, functionality, flexibility and compliance,” said Patrick Conte, senior vice president and general manager of International Business, HyTrust. “The sweet spot of protecting the data, while making it accessible and usable, all while meeting regulatory compliance guidelines and securing customer privacy is hard to pinpoint. HyTrust’s suite of cloud security solutions makes it much easier for customers to receive the benefit of scalability of the cloud while maintaining visibility, control and data protection.”

Recently enacted regulations on how data is protected and used, most notably the European Union’s GDPR, have added to the challenge of finding the right security solution to remain compliant as business models shift toward digitization. HyTrust offers solutions that look holistically at the GDPR lifecycle process and provide capabilities that address each phase of that lifecycle.

At VMworld Barcelona 2018, HyTrust will demonstrate how organizations can use HyTrust technologies, including IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization, to encrypt, geo-fence and set access controls on sensitive workloads to protect them throughout their entire lifecycle.

Attendees can learn more about HyTrust and its suite of data privacy, security, and compliance solutions at IBM booth #D309.
