Bangalore: Mountain View, California based HyTrust, a provider of policy management and access control for virtual infrastructure, has secured $10.5 million in Series B financing. This round of funding is led by the new investors - Granite Ventures and Cisco Systems along with the existing investors Trident Capital and Epic Ventures. Len Rand, Partner at Granite Ventures, will take a seat on the HyTrust Board of Directors.

HyTrust will use the capital to drive development, sales and marketing, and fuel the company's next stage of growth. Thanks to its numerous benefits and proven return on investment, virtualization has taken the IT world by storm. However, IT organizations in industries such as banking, retail, government and healthcare are appropriately reluctant to virtualize systems that handle critical sensitive data and are subject to compliance. Founded in 2007, HyTrust changes the game, enabling them to maximize their return on investment and broadly adopt virtualization, with assurance that controls are firmly in place.

According to the company, HyTrust Appliance empowers organizations to virtualize more - including servers that may be subject to compliance - by delivering enterprise-class controls for access and accountability, and visibility over the entire virtualization infrastructure. "HyTrust continues to demonstrate the importance of this emerging market," said Eric Chiu, president and CEO of HyTrust. Hemma Prafullchandra is the Chief Security Architect of the company.

"HyTrust delivers a new paradigm in security and compliance for the virtualization platform, which is why we chose to add the company to our portfolio," said Rand. "HyTrust set out to solve a real and growing problem faced by a lot of enterprises. By doing so, it paves the way for organizations to virtualize more of their infrastructure with full visibility and control."
