WinMagic Inc, a global leader in data encryption solutions, has introduced the SecureDoc CloudVM encryption solution in India. Addressing the growing concerns of protecting critical assets stored within virtual environments, SecureDoc CloudVM is an enterprise encryption solution that offers support for platforms running in public, private and hybrid cloud environments through application aware intelligent key management.
With most leading organizations looking at leveraging the power of cloud computing, investments in cloud infrastructure in India are expected to be around $1 billion. India is fast gaining importance as a popular investment destination among global IT majors.
“As more and more organizations turn to cloud adoption for a cost-effective approach to scalability and efficiency in the workplace, there is an increasing focus on the lack of proper data protection across public, private and hybrid cloud environments,” said James LaPalme, Vice President, Business Development & Cloud Solutions at WinMagic.
“SecureDoc CloudVM alleviates the anxiety associated with storing business critical data in the cloud. Through a cloud-agnostic approach to encryption, WinMagic is giving the control of key management back to the enterprise, all while ensuring the protection and security of data stored in virtualized workloads.”
The company conducted road shows across the cities of Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru to spread awareness about the new product. Over 50 customers took part in each region. These road shows consisted of product demos, hands-on training sessions and technology tracks to provide customers a comprehensive overview of the software.
A panel discussion was also organized on the topic, “Encryption – The KEY is in the Management – At endpoints and in the cloud.” The panelists included Harshad Mengle – CISO, L&T Finance Ltd; Hitesh Mulani – CISO, Bennett Coleman & Co. Ltd/The Times Group, James LaPalme, Vice President, Business Development & Cloud Solutions at WinMagic; and Sharda Tickoo, Senior Manager- Cybersecurity, Ernst & Young.
Rahul Kumar, Country Manager & Director, WinMagic India, said, “The objective of these sessions was to educate our customers about increasing vulnerabilities in a cloud environment, and how they must approach security. The participants got some valuable insights about the best practices in security management. They gained from the experience of some of the most well-known companies in the country.”
“Our team also provided them with a deeper understanding of how WinMagic’s SecureDoc CloudVM can enable compliance and adherence to security regulations by protecting sensitive data residing in laptops, desktops, servers and on removable media,” added Kumar.
The application aware, intelligent key management capability embedded within SecureDoc CloudVM offers a single pane of glass view into where and how encryption is being deployed. The solution increases visibility and strengthens data security within virtual environments by controlling the encryption key management system across a vast array of layers including endpoints, file servers, virtual servers, enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) solutions and Internet of Things (IoT) instances.
