HyTrust, headquartered in Mountain View, CA, is a leader in policy management and access control delivering automated controls and visibility that allow its customers to scale their cloud infrastructure, virtualize even Tier 1 applications, achieve compliance, and enable multitenancy.


Enterprises continue to achieve major cost savings and operational benefits by virtualizing their non-mission critical workloads. This class of applications was initially virtualized due to their minimal security and compliance requirements.

Virtualizing Tier 1 and compliance workloads can present new and daunting security challenges and, as a result, virtualization initiatives in these environments often lose momentum and even stall. The governance, security, and compliance needs of critical applications are substantially greater than the needs of less critical workloads, and virtualization platforms were not originally designed to meet all of those elevated needs.

McAfee and HyTrust have developed an integrated solution that mitigates the security and regulatory compliance challenges of Tier 1 workloads in VMware environments. It provides:

  • End-to-end security for virtual machines and the virtual infrastructure
  • Verifiable compliance enabled by virtual infrastructure access controls and audit log data
  • Virtual platform hardening, including platform trust verification with Intel TXT
  • HyTrust integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software

New chain of trust for virtual data center.
