Dell today announced the availability of advanced data encryption security services for Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud® Datacenter Service. The added services leverage cloud security solutions from Trend Micro, a global leader in virtualization and cloud security, to further bolster Dell’s public cloud offerings that provide customers with a cost effective and secure enterprise-class solution to drive business agility and value. Dell’s comprehensive cloud offerings also include private and hybrid clouds, as well as application integration and consulting services.
Privacy and security issues are a growing concern as more companies turn to cloud computing and virtualization. Trend Micro SecureCloud provides distinctive data protection for cloud and virtual environments using encryption with policy-based key management and unique server validation. This protection can safely and easily secure sensitive data stored with the Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosted in a secure Dell data center.
“Security is a primary concern among customers moving to the cloud. Delivering encryption and key management solutions from Trend Micro enables us to further alleviate our customers’ concerns while addressing important risks of data privacy, security and compliance with an efficient cloud data protection solution,” said Kevin Jones, vice president, Dell Services. “SecureCloud gives customers the tools and peace of mind to move sensitive workloads into Dell’s public cloud.”
The addition of the data encryption service lends oversight and accountability to the secure Dell data center, for either multi-tenant or single-tenant cloud development. The SecureCloud encryption solution is closely integrated with the Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, but the encryption keys are managed by Trend Micro and accessible only by Dell customers. This layered approach physically and logically separates the encryption keys from the service provider, thus providing additional security and an essential separation of duties.
