Townsend Security, a leading authority in data privacy solutions, today announced that the company’s Alliance Key Manager for VMware has achieved VMware Ready status. Alliance Key Manager for VMware allows enterprises to deploy virtualized encryption and key management servers in both IT data centers as well as the cloud.

“VMware is now the de facto standard for virtualization in the Enterprise data center, and has a growing presence in the cloud. With our announcement today, we are embracing the many benefits that VMware brings to these environments and giving our customers new, more affordable options for enterprise encryption key management,” commented Patrick Townsend, CEO and Founder of Townsend Security.

Using the same FIPS 140-2 compliant technology that is in Townsend Security’s hardware security module (HSM) and in use by over 3,000 customers, Alliance Key Manager for VMware brings a proven and mature encryption key management solution to virtualized environments, with a lower total cost of ownership.
