SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RSA 2018 Conference – HyTrust announced today that it has been recognized as “Hot Company” in the 2018 InfoSec Awards for Cloud Security by Cyber Defense Magazine. The magazine reviewed scores of products and companies to single out those that enable organizations to proactively get ahead of cyber threats and bad actors.
In a multi-cloud world where technology moves at lightning speed and security often plays catchup, serious gaps exist that can be exploited by cybercriminals. Inconsistencies in security policy enforcement and adherence to compliance mandates are becoming the norm for most organizations with a mixture of on-premises, private cloud and public cloud data environments. HyTrust brings integrated visibility and control to organizations with these mixed environments. The HyTrust Cloud Security Policy Framework (Cloud SPF), for instance, enables a “follow the workload” model to ensure that security visibility and policies are consistently enforced across all cloud environments and for all lifecycle phases of the workload—from its creation to its ongoing operations to its final decommission.
“Securing multi-cloud environments requires comprehensive visibility and control rather than a patchwork of point products,” said Eric Chiu, founder and president of HyTrust. “We are honored to receive the ‘Hot Company’ award in recognition of our innovative, proven approach to defining and enforcing policy across mixed data centers.”
“With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum and surpassing global drug crime last year by reaching over $600B in theft and damages, we are proud to see HyTrust as an award-winning innovator for cloud security, offering a comprehensive, innovative approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
