Cloudistics Announces Enhanced Security in its Cloud Platform

Cloudistics, an enterprise hybrid cloud computing company, announced the release of the Cloudistics Spark Guardian Edition operating system, a new security hardened, highly compliant OS that meets the strictest government security standards as part of the new Cloudistics 3.2 release.

"Cloudistics is now hardened to exceed the security requirements for many of the advanced federal contracts that are mandating a move to shared multi-tenanted cloud infrastructures," said Pete Jackson, Director DOD and IC Sales at Three Wire Systems. "We are seeing a huge demand for next-generation cloud computing like Cloudistics to meet the performance demands of real-time threat detection and prevention applications."

The Cloudistics Spark Guardian Edition OS was designed for customers in highly compliant sectors such as government and commercial customers in healthcare, finance, and insurance that require higher level government standard compliance certifications.

"Cloudistics addresses security at every layer in the development cycle so that security is built in, not bolted on," said Najaf Husain, CEO and Founder of Cloudistics. "The compliance certifications and security hardening of our platform make Cloudistics the ideal private cloud platform for our state and federal customers, and commercial customers, especially in healthcare, finance, and insurance, that require their infrastructure to be compliance certified or need additional security safeguards."

The Cloudistics Spark Guardian Edition hypervisor is accredited and validated to meet government compliance standards, including:

  • FIPS 140-2
  • Secure Technical Implementation Guidelines (STIG)
  • USGV6 (DOD IPv6)
  • TAA

Cloudistics is compliant with HIPAA-specific policies, procedures, safeguards to protect client data and PHI, in accordance with HIPAA guidelines.

Key Management Integration

The new release is FIPS 140-2 compliant with the ability to implement centralized key management with KMIP compliant platforms. Cloudistics is now certified with Gemalto SafeNet Key Secure and Vormetric Data Security Manager from Thales.

Local Management Portal

This release includes the ability to install a local version of the management portal. This allows the Cloudistics platform to be managed without a connection to the internet, ideal for customers that require air-gapped environments. The local version maintains many of the features, functionality, and performance of the online portal.


The new Cloudistics Spark Guardian Edition OS is available now.
