CloudLink Technologies has launched the CloudLink SecureVM for VMware vCloud Air, enabling customers to manage data security on Windows & Linux-based virtual machines.
CloudLink SecureVM helps secure both boot and data volumes with a centralized approach that allows IT departments to have visibility and control over when and where their VMs are started. The solution provides enterprises with control of the encryption keys for both Windows- and Linux-based virtual machines and helps validate the integrity of these virtual machines before they are allowed to boot.
“Organizations who want the benefits of the cloud need an easy way to address deployment and security challenges,” explained Ajay Patel, vice president of application services at vCloud Air at VMware. “VMware and CloudLink are providing a suite of solutions that enable organizations to retain control over data privacy and security while seamlessly extending their data centers to VMware vCloud Air.”
Security of sensitive data is the leading concern for many organizations considering the use of cloud services according to 451 Research. The CloudLink data security platform includes a suite of encryption modules to protect workloads at multiple layers to help secure business applications, hosted desktops and file shares.
“Cloud security is a top priority for many enterprises, and cloud security solutions must leverage the company’s existing data security technology and operational expertise,” said Alex Berlin, CEO of CloudLink. “SecureVM unlocks native OS encryption with a centralized management approach that allows IT departments to have control over when and where their VMs and data are run and accessed, enabling enterprises to confidently adopt VMware vCloud Air knowing their data will remain private and can meet regulatory compliance requirements.”
