HyTrust Buddies Up with CIA’s Venture Arm

HyTrust, the cloud automation security company, has gotten a new funding and strategic pal in In-Q-Tel (IQT), the venture arm of the CIA and other American black ops.
HyTrust said the undisclosed investment, which is supposed to tickle its technology at scale, was a direct result of the need felt in the federal and intelligence sectors for greater controls and visibility over the management of virtualized data and cloud infrastructure.
VMware and Cisco are also invested in HyTrust for its greater controls, Role-Based Monitoring (RBM) and the so-called “two-man rule.”
HyTrust helps deliver audit, enforcement and policy controls to the administrative layer, including Secondary Approval to enforce the two-man rule on key transactions and delivers cloud control, visibility and operational readiness for mission-critical workloads run by Fortune 500s and other large organizations worldwide.
