WinMagic and Scale Computing Partner for Hyperconvergence Benefits from Unified Cloud Security

Today, WinMagic and Scale Computing announced a collaboration for enterprises who need high performance, highly secure access to their data across their unified public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

Through Scale's high availability HC3 hyperconverged platform combined with WinMagic's SecureDoc CloudVM encryption and intelligent key management solution, organizations can secure their cloud workloads while focusing on driving business value.

"The ability to control and manage data flow in and out of an organization is going to become increasingly difficult without the implementation of an enterprise solution capable of keeping ahead of security issues, emerging trends, and ever-evolving compliance regulations. Working with WinMagic puts our customers and partners in control. It also helps reduce security risks, with one simple easy to use solution, that overlays our HC3 platform, and allows users to pursue the advantages of public, private or a hybrid cloud strategy," said Jeff Ready, CEO of Scale Computing.

The partnership will be further enhanced by HC3 Cloud Unity, Scale's collaboration with Google, announced on September 28, whom together developed a hybrid cloud solution that makes it easy for organizations to move application workloads freely in the cloud or on-premises. Scale's WinMagic partnership ensures constant data security with these moving workloads through intelligent encryption capabilities.

"Hyperconvergence is a rapidly exploding market and is set to displace traditional server and storage models," states James LaPalme, VP of Cloud Solutions of WinMagic. "The future lies in turnkey cloud solutions, like Scale's hyperconvergence platform, and we're excited to be able to add the powerful security benefits of our SecureDoc CloudVM solution into Scale's HC3 platform -- providing customers greater control and certainty over their data security with an intelligent enterprise-controlled, cloud-agnostic key management and encryption solution."

SecureDoc CloudVM leverages all the strengths built into WinMagic's SecureDoc endpoint encryption to provide enterprises with a flexible and high-performing data security solution.  The solution offers several features that apply intelligence to encryption, speed time to market, increase efficiency and reduce risk, such as enterprise-controlled key management.

"Our customers want control of their systems, whether they are in the cloud or on-premise. But historically the cloud has been one of the least secure places. Add the issue of encrypting and decrypting data as you move it to the cloud, and it's clear utilizing a cloud into an organization's environment is challenging," said Stanton Girod, AR Consultant Group. "Scale Computing and WinMagic are empowering organizations to take back control. Utilizing the recently launched HC3 Cloud Unity platform, which seamlessly bridges an on-premise local LAN with the private virtual network on Google Cloud Platform, WinMagic and Scale are ensuring customers' data is not only secure, but that they have one end-to-end solution that can be deployed across any end point, virtualized or cloud IaaS environment."

The joint solution is available now through WinMagic and Scale reseller channel.

In development of the new partnership, Scale Computing and WinMagic will be hosting a joint webinar on November 28 at 10:30am EST.  Registration for the webinar "Simplifying Security across your Universal I.T. Infrastructure: Top 5 Considerations for Securing Your Virtual and Cloud IT Environments, Without Introducing Unneeded Complexity" can be found at: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/14627/288033.
