Workload Security Specialists

We are delighted to announce a partnership with HyTrust to offer their workload data security technology to customers as a fully managed service.


The Partnership

Our partnership with HyTrust enables us to offer HyTrust DataControl virtual machine level encryption to customers as a service on flexible, monthly terms.

HyTrust DataControl helps Secura Virtual Private Cloud customers encrypt workloads to provide an additional layer of defence against malicious activity; a very positive step in light of the impending GDPR legislation enforcement.

Simple to install and fully managed by Secura, HyTrust DataControl can be delivered as either a stand-alone solution or as part of our Web Protect advanced online protection suite.

HyTrust DataControl

With many data encryption technologies, encryption is only available on a platform level or you would need to purchase premium license editions of software to access encryption. This makes both options expensive to implement with lengthy minimum contract terms attached.

HyTrust DataControl on the Secura Virtual Private Cloud encrypts and protects your business data on a granular, per virtual machine level, making it incredibly cost-effective to implement and protect only sensitive or regulated data.

DataControl also works with very little of the performance impact that is traditionally associated with data encryption. It offloads AES encryption operations to the AES-NI extensions integrated into the Intel Xeon CPUs in Secura’s hypervisor hosts, minimising the overhead of encryption operations on platform performance.

Secura CEO, Oliver Beaton, commented:

With the introduction of GDPR legislation looming, encryption of sensitive data is a very sensible security measure to introduce and has become a priority for many of our customers, who are looking to safeguard their business data.

Our managed DataControl solution makes it simple for companies of any size to access data encryption in a cost-effective way that does not require significant upfront investment or long-term commitment.

Secura CTO, Dan Nichols, commented:

We’re delighted to have partnered with HyTrust to offer DataControl encryption to our customers. It’s an incredibly effective, flexible technology that delivers robust, PCI compliant data encryption with a granularity that makes it tremendously accessible.


HyTrust, Director, Cloud Service Provider Business, EMEA, Stuart Simmons, commented:

We are proud to welcome Secura into our Trusted Cloud Partner Program. The combination of Secura’s highly skilled team and the HyTrust DataControl product means customers can have a high degree of confidence in Secura’s secure cloud services. With the increase in data breaches and numerous compliance and regulatory frameworks customers can adopt Secura’s secure cloud services with confidence.
