According to a recent press release, “HyTrust, Inc. is bolstering its offerings of workload security with the release of CloudAdvisor, a new product which empowers companies to proactively identify risks to sensitive data and protect it against inadvertent exposure, data loss, malicious and careless users, malicious activity, and regulatory non-compliance. Seamlessly deployed as a virtual appliance, CloudAdvisor secures and protects data from the inside out, providing organizations with the ability to simply define, detect, and defend this most valuable information. Organizations using CloudAdvisor can automate the complex and time-intensive process of sensitive business-data discovery, classification, and protection across private cloud and SDDC environments. Anticipated customers are companies with voluminous unstructured data and/or small IT teams, as well as firms in regulated industries, such as finance, health care, government, and the law. These companies can expect to reduce their corporate risk and increase productivity while saving time and money.”
HyTrust founder and president Eric Chiu commented, “It’s a real struggle for companies to manually identify and secure unstructured, high-value data assets that reside deep within their unprotected virtual deployments and cloud-storage solutions… HyTrust CloudAdvisor provides visibility, insight, and actionable intelligence into the confidential and unstructured business data indiscriminately replicated across an organization’s virtual environments. IT and security practitioners can quickly create data-discovery policies specific to business needs, automate discovery and classification tasks, meet regulatory compliance requirements, and proactively protect and secure a company’s most valuable data assets.”
