CA Technologies and HyTrust Inc. Forge Alliance to Arm Customers With Tools Needed to Secure Virtual and Cloud Infrastructures


Complementary Technologies Allow Organizations to Virtualize with Confidence

ISLANDIA, N.Y. and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – August 24, 2011 – Technology alliance partners CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) and HyTrust Inc., a leader in policy management and access control for virtual infrastructure, today announced a collaboration to further improve security and compliance for customers leveraging virtualized systems and cloud infrastructures.

HyTrust Appliance complements CA Access Control by administering various aspects of a virtual infrastructure such as unified access control, policy enforcement and audit-quality logging. HyTrust also supports the recently announced CA Automation Suite for Clouds by providing the security policy and compliance capabilities needed to improve security of the cloud infrastructure.

“A big part of security in the virtualized and cloud world is control of internal users and mitigating internal threats. Organizations need to enforce controls, and they need to have assurance from any cloud provider that its IT administrators are in control - with respect to accessing customer information, applications and systems,” said Lina Liberti, vice president, Security Business, CA Technologies.

Liberti continued, “Our customers have been using CA Access Control for years to help secure and govern privileged user access to critical systems. When coupled with the HyTrust Appliance, the synergies can deliver a robust solution to address control, security management and compliance in virtual and cloud environments from the infrastructure to the services and applications hosted in the private or public cloud.”

Large enterprises continue to explore the benefits of the cloud based on their experiences with virtualization, according to a December 2010 study conducted by Management Insight on behalf of CA Technologies. This expansion moves them to a more complex infrastructure that demands more sophisticated and automated management and security.

“Virtualization presents one of the most significant security challenges an IT organization faces, with the IT administrator being essentially given the ‘keys to the kingdom’ -- access to every system and application. In the move to the cloud, the added complexity and multi-tenancy aspects of the infrastructure bring management, security, and compliance issues to the forefront,” said Eric Chiu, founder and president, HyTrust, Inc.

Chiu continued, “HyTrust Appliance, working in conjunction with CA Technologies access control and cloud automation solutions, helps solve the issues involved in enforcement of end-to-end security policies and compliance controls. The combined solution supports sophisticated cloud infrastructures and enables the deployment of mission-critical and regulated applications in virtual environments.”

Both companies will showcase these solutions at VMWorld 2011 in Las Vegas (August 29 – September 1). CA Technologies, a platinum sponsor of the conference, will be speaking at the conference and will be demonstrating its technology in booth number 439 and HyTrust will be demonstrating its technology in booth number 460.
