Pop the champagne corks! Trend Micro announced the public beta of Trend Micro SecureCloud – an exceptionally cool new offering that you can take for a test drive today. We can finally talk openly about a technology and business approach that addresses cloud security and data governance issues that have been confronting the industry (see blogs from Richard Stiennon, Trend Micro’s Steve Quane here, and Andy Dancer here).
A big hurdle to cloud computing adoption has been securing and controlling data in the public cloud. SecureCloud is a huge step forward enabling enterprises to govern and control cloud data using encryption and sophisticated encryption key management. The encryption used in SecureCloud is standard AES 128 bit encryption, but the secret sauce of the technology lies in key management functionality that validates the identity and integrity of the cloud server.
SecureCloud is home-grown innovation developed by Trend Micro (no acquisitions on this one). Enterprises can now mitigate risks by keeping security separate from their cloud service provider, and can move between cloud service providers while having the security surround and protect their data.
