Entrust launched Entrust CloudControl 6.5 software, which enables organizations to automate both enterprise security policy and deployment workflows for container and Kubernetes environments to help meet compliance mandates and address the increasing complexities of securing multi-cloud environments. Entrust is known for its unique digital security and credential issuance solutions. It is a global leader in payments, identities, and data protection.
The new CloudControl release adds support for the VMware Tanzu container runtime platform, as well as, Red Hat OpenShift, allowing DevOps and DevSecOps teams to deliver security as code. It ensures a strong security posture for container and virtual machine development and deployment.
Tushar Tambay, Vice President of Product Development at Entrust commented, “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. 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.”
Entrust intends to expand the capabilities of its CloudControl software to assist organizations in securing their public and private cloud footprints. This includes virtualized and containerized environments, as well as user and machine access credentials and the establishment and maintenance of consistent security policies.
Phil Bues, Cloud Security Research Manager, IDC stated, “Multi hybrid cloud is a 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. Injecting security earlier into the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and codifying security policies provides a holistic security approach that modern enterprises need.”
