IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization: A HyTrust Joint Solution with IBM Cloud and Intel

HyTrust is proud to announce our new joint solution with IBM Cloud and Intel, IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization. This new offering solves for security and compliance barriers to cloud adoption, enabling organizations, especially in highly regulated industries, to take full advantage of the efficiency, agility and scalability of the cloud without worry.

HyTrust has partnered on this joint solution with IBM and Intel to facilitate organizations’ respective paths to cloud adoption by reducing existing security barriers: privileged access controls, compliance and audit risk, to name just a few. In addition, IBM becomes the first cloud service provider to help solve for GDPR compliance through data geo-fencing, enabled by HyTrust workload security software and Intel TXT.

Leveraging HyTrust’s workload security software and Intel Trusted ExecutionTechnology (TXT), Cloud Integrity Technology and Trusted Platform Module, IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization delivers automated compliance templates (GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, CJIS, CIP, etc.), privileged access controls, audit-quality logging, data geo-fencing, AES 256-bit encryption and key management, all in a highly visible, controlled and automated environment.

“With the rapid proliferation of data, cloud is becoming the platform enterprises turn to for innovation, but security and compliance concerns remain top of mind. IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization can help facilitate cloud adoption and provide enterprises with an automated and security-rich cloud infrastructure to invigorate business innovation and growth.”

John Considine, General Manager for Cloud Infrastructure, IBM

When GDPR officially goes into effect on May 25, 2018, any organization in the world that handles any EU citizens’ data will be impacted. As these organizations prepare to meet the mandates of GDPR and demonstrate data privacy compliance, they can rest assured that IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization, facilitated by Intel TXT and HyTrust BoundaryControl, will keep their data secure and in compliance with the data sovereignty requirements mandated by this new policy.

“Organizations can vastly reduce their spend on costly on-prem infrastructure and safely move to the cloud, ensuring compliance and reducing audit risk by using IBM Cloud Secure Virtualization with HyTrust and Intel. In short, this secure cloud offering will change the way we think about the cloud, and tips the scales in favor of rewards over risks when migrating to the cloud.”

Eric Chiu, Co-founder and President, HyTrust
