Dell adds data encryption service to their cloud

Summary: Dell joins hands with Trend Micro to add security and control to customer cloud data

With businesses considering moving services to cloud based solutions, even those who plan on using a private cloud have concerns about maintaining the privacy and security of their data. While individual applications and services often have their own security and encryption methodologies, enterprise environments demand centralized management of all critical services.

Well, to satisfy these concerns in their cloud service business, Dell has announced integration with the Trend Micro Secure Cloud as a security model for sensitive data in their Infrastructure-as-a -service Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service. This service provides encryption in such a way that it has unique server validation and policy-based key encryption. Though the service is directly integrated with the Dell IaaS service, Trend Micro exert its control over encryption and it is not by Dell. Only Dell customers have to access these keys, so that there is an extra level of security there, separating the key management form the hosted Dell service.

With services being hosted in Dell’s cloud datacenters, offering customers this level of security control over their own information is a key component in assuring customers that deploying using Dell services does not reduce the level of control they have over the security of their data. As this is often a primary concern of potential customers, the addition of SecureCloud to the Dell datacenter portfolio is an important one.

SecureCloud fits in with the Dell SecureWorks security services that Dell offers to its customers. SecureWorks offers a full line of services that includes product support and building integrated security solutions. These solutions include everything from perimeter security to ongoing-enterprise-wide infrastructure security services.
