Sangeeta Anand, general manager and corporate vice president, data protection business unit, SafeNet, Inc.: “The security of mission-critical application data in shared multi-tenant clouds or virtual machines is a concern for companies that want to virtualise or move these production applications to the cloud. SafeNet solves this problem with the introduction of ProtectV, a comprehensive virtual machine and cloud data security solution. By using ProtectV with VMware vCenter™ (4.1x) and VMware vShield™, customers can protect high-value data by combining access control and crypto-production at scale. Now customers can move their mission-critical applications to private, public, or hybrid clouds while retaining full ownership and control over their high-value data.”
“We are pleased that SafeNet qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware integration and interoperability standards, and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure, which will speed time to value within customer environments,” said Sheryl Sage, director, Alliance Programs, VMware.
