PRESS RELEASE – MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Feb. 16, 2015 – HyTrust Inc., the Cloud Security Automation Company, has been named of CRN Magazine’s 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors Of The 2015 Cloud 100. The accolade is the latest in a long line of awards the company has received for its pioneering work developing software solutions that provide the essential foundation for control, visibility, data security, and compliance in cloud infrastructures. Founded by industry veterans and visionaries who saw the potential of virtualization and the cloud earlier than most, HyTrust has led the way to a secure, compliant next generation datacenter.
“Our core mission has always been to enhance security for the regulated and otherwise sensitive data enterprises have in the cloud, and this recognition from CRN is further validation of our success,” said Eric Chiu, president and founder of HyTrust. “Because the cloud introduces new, concentrated risk, security is always a potential roadblock to full-fledged adoption. We thank CRN Magazine for this praise of our innovation in helping corporations more easily expand virtualization to mission-critical applications and take greater advantage of the cloud.”
Last year, HyTrust was named “Most Innovative Partner of the Year” at the McAfee FOCUS Conference and SC Magazine’s 2014 Virtualization and Cloud Security Innovator. HyTrust BoundaryControl, which enables policy-based control over where virtual workloads can run, also won the Intel Technology Innovation Award for 2014, and HyTrust DataControl, which helps organizations lock down virtual machines to enable security throughout their lifecycle, was named Best Cloud Security Solution at Net Events 2014. The Mountain View Business Association singled out HyTrust in its “2014 Best of Mountain View Awards” in the category of Best Software Company and CRN Magazine itself cited HyTrust as an Emerging Vendor for 2014.
“We’re gratified by the awards and the recognition, but we know the focus is on the present and the future,” Mr. Chiu stressed. “This is an environment in which there are always new threat vectors introducing new forms of danger to the network infrastructure. The virtualized and cloud paradigm can only succeed with top-notch security, and we’ll continue to lead the way in providing exactly what the industry needs and deserves.”
