Securing the cloud: LynuxWorks and TransLattice join forces to help secure sensitive data in cloud computing
SAN JOSE, Calif., 15 Dec. 2011. LynuxWorks Inc. in San Jose, Calif., is joining hands with TransLattice Inc. in Santa Clara, Calif., to provide information security for sensitive cloud computing data and applications. The companies have ported the TransLattice Application Platform 2.0 onto the LynxSecure separation kernel and hypervisor to provide security, availability, scalability and resilience for migration of data and applications to cloud computing. LynxSecure enables several guest operating systems and their applications to run securely on one platform by isolating applications into separate partitions to prevent unintended or dangerous software interactions.
The platform aggregates physical appliances and cloud instances into a network of distributed computing resources that run enterprise applications. There are two types of policy rules that dictate how and where data can be stored. Redundancy policy rules define how many copies to store of a specific set of data. Location policy rules define where a specific set of data can or cannot be stored.
