HyTrust

Centralized, Single Point of Control

HyTrust™ offers a centralized, single-point-of-control for virtual infrastructure access, policy management, security configuration, and compliance. By combining the same control mechanisms of the physical world into a comprehensive solution for virtual infrastructure, HyTrust cost-effectively enables virtual infrastructure to achieve the same level of operational readiness as that of physical infrastructure.

Empowering enterprises to “go virtual.”

HyTrust enables the broader adoption of virtualization—and all the business advantages that come with it—by providing a single point of control for hypervisor policy definition, access control, and security configuration that enables virtual infrastructure to become as operationally ready as physical infrastructure.

Virtualization: Greater flexibility, diminished control.
Virtualization is becoming increasingly ubiquitous in the datacenter thanks to its numerous benefits and rapid return on investment. Unfortunately the increased flexibility of virtualization, which enables so many of its benefits, can simultaneously increase security risk and compromise compliance initiatives. Failure to address these concerns can hamper efforts to virtualize critical applications and scale up virtualization deployments.

The power and flexibility of virtualization.

Unlike the physical datacenter—with its fixed access path, physical security controls on the server room, and well-defined network perimeter—the virtual datacenter has far less rigidity but also fewer controls. As a result, access control is inconsistent, configuration is error-prone, and log collection for audits is both manual and tedious. Thanks to this new paradigm of flexibility, the (virtual) machine has now become the data… and all sensitive data must be protected.

Virtualization under control.™

The HyTrust™ Appliance offers a centralized, single-point-of-control for virtual infrastructure access, policy management, security configuration, and compliance. By combining the same control mechanisms of the physical world into a comprehensive solution for virtual infrastructure, HyTrust cost-effectively enables virtual infrastructure to achieve the same level of operational readiness as that of physical infrastructure.
