Security Compliance for Both Public and Private Clouds


There’s no shortage of regulations and standards—each with its own acronym, of course—requiring organizations to maintain the highest security standards and comply with numerous data protection guidelines. No industry is immune to regulatory restrictions.

At the same time, organizations across the industries rely on the cloud to store and process large volumes of confidential data. Security compliance accounts for up to 40 percent of the cost to manage virtual applications in cloud, according to Prasanna Mulgaonkar, CEO of Cloud Raxak. The company’s software-as-a-service solution, Raxak Protect, helps customers protect their assets using industry-approved technical controls in private and public cloud environments.

Cloud Raxak’s partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise helps Mulgaonkar’s firm accelerate application deployment, reduce security compliance costs, reduce novice user risk, and simplify audits across public and private clouds.


Compliance Made Easier

At the heart of Raxak Protect is HPE Cloud Service Automation (CSA) software, which provides open, extensible enterprise-grade hybrid cloud service management.

 “HPE CSA allows the security postures that we provide to be applied at the time at which an asset is created right within CSA,” says Mulgaonkar. “So from time zero to the time the asset is decommissioned, which is managed by CSA, our product gets notified of the creation of the asset, and we can control it, manage it, and work its security posture.”

Cloud Raxak’s partnership with HPE enables its customers to create and apply custom security profiles to private clouds. For an HPE Helion OpenStack® private cloud, Raxak Protect leverages Intel TXT/TPM technology built in to HPE ProLiant servers to automatically secure cloud assets from boot time to run time. This allows security conscious companies in regulated industries like finance, healthcare, and the public sector to maintain continuous compliance. They can also enable unique capabilities like location-based workloads.

Among Raxak Protect’s most unique components is its ability to continuously check and remediate security compliance status while logging all errors in comprehensive security reports. What’s more, HPE ProLiant servers with Intel CIT running the HPE Helion OpenStack private cloud include geotagging information for the applications and data, making it easier to prove to regulatory auditors that data is being stored properly.
