Mountain View, CA and Reston, VA (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
HyTrust Inc., the leader in policy management and access control for virtualization and cloud infrastructure, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced a strategic partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as HyTrusts master government aggregator, making the companys industry-leading security, control, management, and compliance platform and HyTrust Appliance available to the public sector via Carahsofts GSA schedule.
We have contracted with several of the largest government departments and agencies to secure their virtual infrastructures over recent years, and we are eager to expand our reach within the federal sector, said Eric Chiu, president and founder of HyTrust. Carahsofts extensive government sales, marketing, and contract expertise make it the perfect go-to-market partner for us.
The recently released HyTrust Appliance 3.0 provides government agencies and enterprises with greater control over access to their virtual infrastructures, while also providing the visibility required for security and compliance with industry and regulatory mandates. By enabling organizations to virtualize more and build private clouds safely, HyTrust increases virtualization ROI while satisfying the demands of internal security teams, compliance auditors, and virtualization operations.
Among numerous advances, HyTrust Appliance 3.0 includes a Secondary Approval feature that enforces the two-person rule. Designed to prevent risk from unintended or malicious actions to virtual machines, critical applications and data, this feature is a pivotal development for mission-critical operations.
HyTrust offers a robust set of products that address the security risk posture of government agencies wanting to maximize virtualization and cloud computing environments, said Michael Shrader, vice president of Innovative and Intelligence solutions at Carahsoft. These solutions are excellent complements to our deep portfolio of virtualization, cloud and security solutions and we are pleased to make them available to our government customers and reseller partners.
