According to a recent press release, “Virtru, a leading data protection platform provider that stands at the intersection of security and privacy, today announced the Virtru Developer Hub, a single development portal to integrate data protection capabilities and ensure the privacy of sensitive data. Now, developers can embed platform-agnostic protection into their applications or connected devices in just a few lines of code. In addition, Virtru is kicking-off a privacy-engineering challenge, inviting developers to create innovative projects that support a range of use cases. Unlike point solutions or complex, loosely integrated platforms that require in-house cryptographic expertise and multiple management consoles, the Virtru Developer Hub provides one-stop access to tools that enable persistent data protection and consistent policy enforcement across disparate systems and multi-cloud environments.”
The release goes on, “The Virtru Developer Hub enables developers to apply data protection across any platform, device, environment or application. As an example, the combination of Virtru’s Data Protection Platform and Intel® Software Guard Extension (Intel® SGX), a hardware-based trusted execution environment (TEE) technology to help protect application code and data, now empowers developers to easily create TEEs, or enclaves, where data access and sharing can be controlled and audited in order to meet ever-evolving compliance and privacy requirements. Virtru empowers companies to protect data wherever it is created, shared and stored, allowing the dynamic adding and removal of authorized users, processes and devices. The Virtru C++ SDK is optimized for use within Intel SGX to allow enclaves to dynamically request access to any data encrypted by the Virtru Trusted Data Format (TDF), or export data under dynamic policy, allowing controlled export of data from an enclave while maintaining enforcement of policy and controls.”
