HyTrust Cloud and VM Encryption

Cloud Agnostic Encryption and Key Management

With recent surveys showing that over 50% of IT managers withhold sensitive data from the cloud, it is clear that there is a need and desire for a solution that allows you to deploy even sensitive data to the cloud. Indeed, a look at many recent breaches reveals that ion many cases user account and password data was stored in plaintext with no encryption. Fortunately addressing such shortcomings can be relatively easy with it taking only seconds to install the HyTrust encryption agent and powerful key management capabilities contributing to the overall operational transparency of the solution.

Strong Encryption

DataControl uses FIPS-approved AES-128/256 encryption for all data, both at rest and in motion, ensuring secure protection for even sensitive data.

Portable and Transparent

DataControl encryption travels with the VM and runs in any virtualized environment, public or private and integrates with DAS, NAS or SAN storage. Does not impact the user experience or how the VM is administered.
