Today, Pivot3 announced new policy-based security management capabilities, powered by HyTrust, in its Intelligence Engine.  Pivot3’s expanded Intelligence Engine capabilities allow organizations to automate and simplify the process of protecting sensitive data with comprehensive, standards-based security. The platform also facilitates regulatory compliance as customers acquire and manage data across the edge, core and cloud.

As part of the Intelligence Engine update Pivot3 now offers HyTrust KeyControl and HyTrust DataControl, our key management and data encryption solutions, for securing customers’ most sensitive workloads, regardless of where they reside.  This new capability includes flexible, secure multi-tenancy and data-at-rest encryption at a system, volume or virtual machine level.  All of this is compliant with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2.  HyTrust and Pivot3 data encryption algorithms leverage Intel® AES New Instructions (AES NI) to ensure minimal performance impact and low overhead.  This amounts to the ability to enable enterprises to easily encrypt sensitive data and manage all encryption keys at scale, including how often keys are rotated and how they are shared securely.

“With the growth of hyper-converged infrastructure and the expectation that enterprises will increasingly have mixed workload environments, it is essential to employ key management and data encryption as an integral part of securing the infrastructure,” said Eric Chiu, Co-Founder and President of HyTrust. “Pivot3’s Intelligence Engine will further simplify security management for enterprises and extend the industry preference for HyTrust KeyControl in a world where data must be secured no matter where it resides.”

John Spiers, vice president of strategy at Pivot3 added, “With security threats on the rise and regulations around data security increasing, CIOs and CISOs face new challenges as they seek to protect sensitive, mission-critical data without compromising performance.”  We at HyTrust couldn’t agree more with John’s statement.  Pivot3’s policy-based security management will be available in Acuity version 10.6 before the end of the year.
