Nutanix Ready Validation and Partnership Enables Compliance and Data Breach Protection for Enterprises
SAN FRANCISCO, CA December 3, 2015 – Vormetric, a leader in enterprise data security for physical, virtual, big data and cloud environments, today announced that Vormetric Transparent Encryption (VTE) and Vormetric Key Management (VKM) have been validated as Nutanix Ready for Networking and Security. Vormetric provides essential data-at-rest security solutions that help organizations address compliance and data breach prevention needs for deployments using the Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP).
The Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform comes ready to run all enterprise applications, at any scale. With a distributed web-scale architecture, Nutanix hyperconverged appliances can run many workloads simultaneously, including enterprise databases, applications, virtual desktop environments and big data workloads for efficiency, flexibility and low total costs of ownership.
By managing encryption keys for Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) compatible self-encrypting drives within Nutanix XCP, Vormetric Key Management provides an entry level of compliance that protects against loss or theft of these drives from the Nutanix XCP nodes.
For stronger protection, Vormetric Transparent Encryption works seamlessly within guest OS instances running on various hypervisors on Nutanix XCP, encrypting data at the file system level, and providing access controls to encrypted data. This combination both meets higher levels of compliance requirements for the protection of sensitive information (such as credit card information, PII and PHI, under PCI DSS and HIPAA/HITECH) and provides strong security against hackers or malicious insiders attempting access at the system level.
"We are excited to have Vormetric join the Nutanix Elevate partner ecosystem," said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Business Development at Nutanix. "Vormetric encryption and key management solutions in combination with the Nutanix XCP with self-encrypting drives enable compliance and protection from cyber threats, without sacrificing speed and flexibility."
“Nutanix solutions offer tremendous value to enterprises building cloud environments, running critical applications, and consolidating infrastructure,” said Vice President of Business Development for Vormetric, Arun Gowda. “Many solutions running within these environments will have access to sensitive data elements, and as a result, must be protected against data breach risks, and also meet regulatory and compliance requirements for data security. Vormetric’s validation on the Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform assures customer of a strongly supported solution to these problems.”
