Credant has announced the immediate availability of the beta program for its cloud encryption software for virtual desktop infrastructure and private cloud infrastructures.

According to the company, this will enable organisations to control and enforce security of corporate data, whether it is located in private, hybrid or public cloud infrastructures.

The solution will enable businesses and governmental organisations to deploy private cloud infrastructures as part of their long-term roadmap to full cloud utilisation by putting data security in the control of the enterprise, not the cloud administrator.

Chris Burchett, CTO and co-founder of Credant, said: “Credant's robust key management technology and data-centric encryption technology allows us to solve one of the core cloud security problems in a fundamentally different way.

“The complexity of managing cloud infrastructures requires a new model for data security and our new offering defines the path for organisations to more rapidly and securely adopt cloud models by removing the risks of data theft and insider attack wherever the data resides.”
