Today, I’m thrilled to announce that Entrust has acquired HyTrust, Inc., expanding Entrust’s capabilities in encryption, key management, and security posture management for virtualized and multi-cloud environments.

Enterprises are turning to virtualization and the cloud to accelerate their digital transformations. Security is crucial. As critical data and operations move from private data centers to virtualized and cloud environments, organizations must transform how they protect against the risk of catastrophic failure and data breaches. With the acquisition of HyTrust, Entrust provides organizations the confidence to expand virtualization to mission-critical applications and take full advantage of the cloud.

Multi-cloud workload security has never been more important. HyTrust solutions automate security controls for software-defined computing, networking, and storage workloads to achieve the highest levels of visibility, granular policy control and data protection. Organizations can accelerate cloud and virtualization cost savings while improving their security posture through real-time automation and security policy enforcement; adapting quickly to compliance requirements; and preventing unplanned outages.

With this acquisition, Entrust adds critical management capabilities for encryption, cryptographic keys, and cloud security policy to our digital security solutions portfolio, serving the data protection and compliance needs of organizations accelerating their digital transformations.

We have been working with HyTrust as a technology partner, helping joint customers effectively address cryptographic key management needs of enterprise multi-cloud deployments with a robust root of trust integrating Entrust nShield® HSMs. Looking ahead, we plan to accelerate security and compliance solutions for on-premise, hybrid, virtualized and multi-cloud environments.

At Entrust, our mission is to keep the world moving safely by enabling trusted identities, payments, and data protection. We are extremely pleased to welcome our new HyTrust customers, partners, and colleagues to this mission.  Our world won’t stop changing – and neither will we.
