NTT America Selects Trend Micro to Provide Data Protection for Private Cloud Platforms

NTT America, a global infrastructure services provider and wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, today announced the company has selected SecureCloud from Trend Micro to provide data protection for enterprise customers using NTT America’s private cloud computing platform. Using encryption with policy-based key management and unique server validation, SecureCloud is designed to protect sensitive data stored in NTT America’s cloud computing platforms. This protection is also available for hybrid cloud environments which utilize NTT America’s private cloud.

Key Benefits of SecureCloud

  • SecureCloud is the data encryption solution of choice for NTT America’s VMware vCloud Director-based private cloud and is part of NTT America’s portfolio of hosted services offered to customers in the Americas.
  • According to analysts, enterprise clients’ top concerns when implementing cloud computing remain security of service and data location, and privacy or access concerns to their data. SecureCloud was designed to directly address these concerns by alleviating data security, privacy and compliance risks associated with deploying information into a private cloud-computing environment.
  • SecureCloud’s patent-pending approach integrates unique policy-based key management, industry-standard encryption and virtual-server validation to safely and easily deploy data into private cloud environments. This lightweight approach enables cloud users to secure sensitive information without having to install a more complex secure file infrastructure.
  • Customers are provided with detailed reporting and access to alert features for both interval- and incident-based notifications.
  • SecureCloud uses identity- and integrity-based policy enforcement to ensure only authorized virtual machines receive keys and access secure volumes.
