SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HyTrust (@HyTrust), the leader in workload security for multi-cloud infrastructure, and Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announce a partnership and certification for their solutions on added encryption and security when delivering software-defined storage solutions to existing hardware-based storage and hyper-converged environments.

By deploying Nexenta's 5th generation and market leading Software-Defined Storage solution, NexentaStor, and HyTrust's KeyControl KMS, IT infrastructures’ private clouds can easily add secure and encrypted enterprise file storage functionality to an existing, non-encrypted storage environment. No longer is there a need to deploy specialized hardware to add encrypted file-based storage.  Easily take advantage of HyTrust KeyControl KMS and the NexentaStor Virtual Storage Appliance to migrate and store files to fully encrypted new shares.

HyTrust KeyControl KMS and NexentaStor capabilities include:

  • Universal key management for KMIP-compatible encryption agents
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated. FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliance via HSM support
  • Highly Availability (HA) active-active file services clustering
  • Support for file (NFS, CIFS, SMB) and block (iSCSI)
  • Unlimited file system size with unlimited space-optimized snapshots, clones, and inline data reduction
  • High-Performance Replication (HPR) - both scheduled and continuous asynchronous
  • VMware Integration (vCenter 6.7) and Storage QoS

“Today’s complex legal and compliance environment mandates enterprises secure some or all of their data.  Until now this required the purchase of additional hardware and complex deployments,” explains Michael Letschin, Field Chief Technology Officer at Nexenta.  “The combination of the Nexenta and HyTrust solutions allows enterprises to gain the security controls they require for their storage without the need for more hardware, and all through a flexible, convenient software-defined model.”

“Managing the security of workloads in a legacy environment is complex and challenging for administrators,” says Steve Pate, Chief Architect at HyTrust.  “Modern and proven software approaches from HyTrust and Nexenta provide data centers the agility, flexibility and confidence required for today’s enterprise.”
