GuardTime, Joyent partners to provide security in the cloud

Independently verifiable proof of operating integrity in the cloud

By CBR Staff Writer

Joyent, a provider of cloud computing offerings, and GuardTime, creator of the patented Keyless Signature technology, have partnered to provide security to enterprises code, logs and data in the cloud.

Under the partnership, Joyent customers will be able to purchase GuardTime SmartMachines, which allows organisation to: secure an application by signing its gold master code, preventing compromised applications from executing.

In addition, it also safeguards the SmartMachine’s logs, which makes accidental changes or malicious tampering impossible to conceal; and protect data backups, turning private and public cloud storage into safe, tamper-evident archives.

The GuardTime’s Keyless Signatures provide proof of signing authority, time of the signature, and integrity of all data located in the cloud.

GuardTime CEO Mike Gault said the integration of their unique Keyless Signature technology within the Joyent SmartMachine gives organisations the unprecedented opportunity to trust their applications, logs, and data in the cloud.

"We are thrilled to be joining forces with Joyent to provide independently verifiable proof of operating integrity in the cloud for both cloud-based service providers and cloud-consuming institutions around the world," Gault said.
