Entrust strengthens enterprise security for multi-cloud deployments

News Desk -


Entrust, a provider of trusted identities, payments, and data protection solutions, has released Entrust CloudControl 6.5 software, which addresses the growing complexities of securing multi-cloud environments. To help organizations meet their compliance mandates, the software automates both enterprise security policy and deployment workflows for container and Kubernetes environments.

The new CloudControl release, for example, includes support for VMware Tanzu and Red Hat OpenShift, allowing DevOps and DevSecOps teams to deliver security as code and provide robust security posture management for container and virtual machine development and deployment.

Entrust is delivering a compliance-centric, enterprise-grade platform that helps DevSecOps and security administrators to establish, manage and maintain a robust security posture, across multiple clouds and on-prem environments, which can prevent inadvertent or malicious misconfigurations leading to failed audits, service disruption or breaches in security.  

“Over 70 percent of enterprises now use three or more clouds – often creating an unwieldy, de facto multi-cloud environment. As organizations migrate more operations to the cloud, and use containers and Kubernetes, managing these to ensure consistent security and compliance is becoming increasingly challenging,” said Tushar Tambay, Vice President, Product Development at Entrust

Entrust intends to expand the capabilities of CloudControl software to assist enterprises secure their public and private cloud footprints in order to meet this demand. This includes virtualized and containerized systems, as well as developing and maintaining uniform security policies for users and machines.

“Multi hybrid cloud is the new reality. Security is provisioned fundamentally differently in this reality which requires both a shift left, DevSecOps, approach and the right runtime tools to secure the surge in microservices-based Kubernetes and containers implementations all while the threat landscape grows” said Phil Bues, Cloud Security Research Manager, IDC. “Injecting security earlier into the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and codifying security policies provides a holistic security approach that modern enterprises need.”

“The Entrust CloudControl software now provides indispensable capabilities for customers to start the journey towards multi-cloud security. As a trusted advisor, Entrust leverages its expertise in protecting identities, data, and infrastructures, to build a comprehensive multi-cloud security platform that provides risk reduction of unexpected infrastructure outages and exfiltration of high value environments,” added Tambay.
