The public cloud has been widely adopted, not only by consumers but also by enterprises ranging in size from SMB to Fortune 500. Indeed, one of the challenges of the cloud has been containing and controlling that migration as many have found it faster and more convenient to route around corporate IT and deploy cloud based services from their own budgets without benefit of oversight or supervision.
There are other challenges beyond just rogue IT though, one of which is security. Indeed, a recent survey revealed that more than 50% of IT managers keep sensitive data off the public cloud because of these concerns. The good news is that it is possible to leverage the public cloud while addressing many of these justified concerns around security and privacy.
HyTrust DataControl is one product that can help better secure hybrid and public cloud with strong encryption, security that stays with VMs even when the VMs are moved, zero downtime encryption and rekeying as well as easy key management.
If you would like to learn more about how it is possible to have your cloud and security too, we are doing a webinar featuring Steve Pate, HyTrust Chief Architect who will cover these and other related topics in what should be an interesting and useful webinar.
