Joyent, GuardTime form partnership to provide security in cloud

GuardTime's Keyless Signature integrated within the Joyent SmartMachine

By CBR Staff Writer

Joyent, a provider of cloud computing offerings, and GuardTime, the creator of patented Keyless Signature technology used to validate the world’s data, have formed a partnership that delivers security enabling enterprises to safeguard their assets in the cloud, such as code, logs and data.

GuardTime’s Keyless Signatures provide proof of signing authority, time of the signature, and integrity of all data located in the cloud, based on mathematics, eliminating the need for secrets, keys, or human intervention.

As part of this partnership, Joyent customers will be able to purchase GuardTime SmartMachines, allowing organisations to secure an application by signing its gold master code, preventing compromised applications from executing.

The technology will also enable organisations to safeguard the SmartMachine’s logs, such as administrative, policy, configuration, or events; and protect data backups, turning private and public cloud storage into safe, tamper-evident archives.

Joyent founder and chief scientist Jason Hoffman said organisations can now access a mathematically driven solution that cannot be compromised by human error or breached by cyber miscreants.

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

Singapore’s Infocomm Investments Pte Ltd (IIPL), which is also an investor in GuardTime, has made the partnership possible.

IIPL CEO Kuo-Yi Lim said that they believe that this collaboration will bring security in cloud computing to a new level and in turn spur the development of the cloud computing industry in Singapore.
