Pivot3’s expanded Intelligence Engine capabilities enable customers
to streamline security and regulatory compliance across the edge, core
and cloud


the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) performance and technology

leader, today announced new policy-based security management

capabilities in its core Intelligence Engine. These expanded

capabilities allow organizations to automate and simplify the process of

protecting sensitive data with comprehensive, standards-based security

for encryption and key management. Pivot3’s new platform enhancements

also facilitate regulatory compliance as customers acquire and manage

data across the edge, core and cloud.

“With security threats on the rise and regulations around data security

increasing, CIOs and CISOs face new challenges as they seek to protect

sensitive, mission-critical data without compromising performance,” said

John Spiers, vice president of strategy at Pivot3. “Customers rely on us

every day to simplify management at scale. This extension of Pivot3’s

Intelligence Engine brings new confidence to IT in knowing that data can

be secured and protected as it moves across the entire hybrid cloud


Pivot3’s Intelligence Engine enhances application performance, data

placement, data protection, and monitoring and analytics, enabling

customers to confidently consolidate multiple, mixed-application

workloads on HCI while reducing time, cost and complexity. The addition

of automated, policy-based security management capabilities to the

Pivot3 Intelligence Engine enables customers to implement easy to use

policies to seamlessly integrate data encryption and key management into

the same workflow for managing applications and storage.

To address the increased regulation and compliance requirements, the new

capability includes flexible, secure multi-tenancy and data-at-rest

encryption at a system, volume or virtual machine level, compliant with

Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2. Pivot3 designed

its data encryption algorithms to leverage Intel Xeon CPUs AES New

Instructions (AES NI) to ensure minimal performance impact and low

overhead. Key management is integrated into the new security policies

and supports the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP)

standards to provide broad support of key managers.

As part of its security portfolio, Pivot3 offers HyTrust KeyControl,

which is integrated seamlessly with Pivot3’s policy-based security

management. This enables enterprises to easily manage all encryption

keys at scale, including how often keys are rotated and how they are

shared securely.

“With the growth of hyperconverged infrastructure and the expectation

that enterprises will increasingly have mixed workload environments, it

is essential to employ key management as an integral part of securing

the infrastructure,” said Eric Chiu, Co-Founder and President of

HyTrust. “Pivot3’s Intelligence Engine will further simplify security

management for enterprises and extend the industry preference for

HyTrust KeyControl in a world where data must be secured no matter where

it resides.”

“As organizations evolve to address emerging security threats and

changing regulations, automation and intelligence become key ingredients

in maintaining a secure infrastructure across the edge, core and cloud,”

said Tim Stammers,senior analyst at 451 Group. “By adding policy-based

security management features to its Intelligence Engine, Pivot3 is

simplifying the process of protecting sensitive and mission-critical

data and enabling customers to progress toward a software-defined


Pivot3’s policy-based security management will be available in Acuity

version 10.6 before the end of the year. For more information, please
