HyTrust CloudControl adds centralized role-based access control and compliance hardening for VMware Cloud Foundation customers

MINNEAPOLIS (April 12, 2021)Entrust a global leader in trusted identities, payments, and digital infrastructure, has announced its HyTrust CloudControl solution – now an Entrust business – now supports VMware Cloud Foundation, enabling unified security and compliance controls across the platform, lowering operational overhead and facilitating workload agility.

As the hybrid cloud platform for managing virtual machines and orchestrating containers, VMware Cloud Foundation provides a single architecture for consistent, secure infrastructure and operations across private and public clouds. With this offering, enterprises using the platform can deploy HyTrust CloudControl to add centralized role-based access control, visibility and compliance. This management layer also extends to protect VMware SDDC manager, the automated deployment and orchestration solution within VMware Cloud Foundation. Additionally, it assists VMware customers that have been moving from individual products to the VMware Cloud Foundation private cloud with centralized, role-based access control and stronger compliance.

“Organizations are increasingly moving to hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, and many rely on VMware Cloud Foundation to accomplish this. However, a lot of organizations struggle with achieving consistent security and compliance while not slowing down application innovation,” said Eric Chiu, Founder and President of HyTrust, an Entrust company. “We have been working with VMware to deliver a complete solution that enables organizations to protect their implementation, enable regulatory compliance, secure critical infrastructure and accelerate troubleshooting through greater visibility.”

“VMware Cloud Foundation has become the primary platform for those customers deploying hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure. For many of these customers, compliance and security are key requirements,” explained Paul Turner, vice president of Product Management, Cloud Platform Business Unit at VMware. “HyTrust security policy management solutions are complementary to VMware’s intrinsic security capabilities. HyTrust CloudControl will enable a seamless operational experience for all access management to their on-premises cloud deployments, including a unified authentication, authorization and audit control environment.”

“Security and compliance are top of mind for every organization as they shift more operations to cloud infrastructure. Many of our customers are looking for greater access control, logging and compliance, especially for their mission critical and regulated workloads,” added James Harless, Principal Solutions Architect, Global Engineering Team at World Wide Technology. “WWT has been working with HyTrust and VMware to address these needs over the last year and we look forward to bringing this joint solution to our customers and enabling greater VMware Cloud Foundation adoption.”

HyTrust CloudControl for VMware Cloud Foundation is being beta tested with selected customers and is expected to be generally available in June 2021.
