WinMagic and Microsoft Azure Work Together to Help Secure the Cloud


WinMagic Inc. today announced its collaboration with Microsoft Azure Solutions to further protect data in public, private and hybrid clouds. With the widest support from virtualized servers to numerous public and private clouds, WinMagic’s SecureDoc CloudVM provides a single platform and pane of glass that is enterprise controlled and can be utilized to increase enterprise security, ensure encryption compliance, reduce complexity and help to remove silos of encryption within an organization.

WinMagic’s SecureDoc CloudVM solution is a comprehensive full-disk encryption and intelligent key management for Azure virtual machines that protects data in Azure (public), Hyper-V (private) and hybrid cloud environments. The solution increases visibility and strengthens data security within virtual environments by controlling the encryption key management system across a vast array of layers including endpoints, file servers, virtual servers, enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) solutions and Internet of Things (IoT) instances. SecureDoc CloudVM’s application-aware intelligent key management capability alleviates the problems associated with protecting multiple encrypted layers and managing associated keys and credentials by providing unique key and policy management for virtualized workloads. SecureDoc CloudVM also offers a strong policy engine to provide granular policy and support for all cloud automation requirements.

“As more business and mission-critical data reaches the cloud, securing data will always be a concern for enterprise IT leaders,” said James LaPalme, Vice President of Business Development and Cloud Solutions at WinMagic. “With this enhanced relationship with a leading cloud solution like Azure, together we empower customers to help secure data wherever it is stored, providing enterprise controlled data encryption and application-aware intelligent key management policies across all operating systems and any end point in any environment.”

“With more and more Canadian businesses moving to the cloud, it’s critical they have proper security measures in place to allow them to transform their business and migrate to the cloud with confidence,” said Mary-Ellen Anderson, Vice President, Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft Canada. “Collaborating with companies like WinMagic creates a truly powerful solution for our mutual customers by providing them with greater control of encryption and key management, as well as unmatched global support.”
