Pivot3, the hyperconverged infrastructure performance and technology provider, has expanded its relationship with HyTrust, a cloud workload security vendor, to deliver secure, compliant video surveillance infrastructure solutions that ensure high levels of data protection.

Video data requires stringent logical and physical protection to ensure compliance and reduce unauthorised breaches. Through highly secure encryption and comprehensive role-based access control, HyTrust workload security solutions ensure the highest levels of data protection.

Combined with Pivot3 purpose-built, highly resilient infrastructure, the two companies deliver a video surveillance solution that meets the data security and compliance requirements of mission-critical environments.

Achieving regulatory compliance

Encryption is typically a resource-intensive process that requires more powerful servers to maintain video performance, resulting in the need for customers to purchase additional costly hardware.

Role-based access control provided by HyTrust CloudControl allows only authorised individuals to have control over system management

By leveraging HyTrust DataControl software-based encryption, with its near-zero system resource overhead, organisations can maintain the required performance from their current video infrastructure and eliminate additional hardware investments.

Beyond encryption, HyTrust provides a comprehensive feature set that secures all aspects of a video surveillance infrastructure. Role-based access control provided by HyTrust CloudControl allows only authorised individuals to have control over system management, while forensic logging and auditing helps to achieve regulatory compliance.

Ensuring data security

Security leaders are challenged with capturing high levels of video data and ensuring that data is protected, secure and available when needed,” said David Siles, Vice President of Business Development, HyTrust.

HyTrust's experience in the data security space, combined with Pivot3's leadership in video surveillance infrastructure solutions, allows organisations to gain peace-of-mind that video data is protected from outside threats or breaches.”

Purpose-built for the specific and complex requirements of video surveillance deployments, Pivot3 solutions provide the highest levels of performance, resiliency and availability so critical video surveillance data is stored without loss, protected from any failures and always available when and where it is needed most.

Our partnership with HyTrust enables us to ensure that customers’ investment in video is secure and safeguarded from unauthorised use"

Preventing unauthorised access

With the growing number of threats from around the world, data security has become the top concern in the security industry,” said Brandon Reich, surveillance practice leader, Pivot3.

It is more vital than ever to protect video and corporate data, and our partnership with HyTrust enables us to ensure that customers’ investment in video is secure and safeguarded from unauthorised use.”

Reducing overhead costs

On top of this, by reducing the overhead imposed through the data protection process to near zero, customers won’t have to spend additional funds on additional hardware, or suffer degraded performance from the overhead that a traditional solution consumes.”

The secure, compliant video surveillance infrastructure Pivot3 and HyTrust bring to market builds on the work the two companies have already done to deliver secure, high-performance, multi-tenant data centre infrastructure for mission-critical applications.
