WELWYN GARDEN CITY, UK – Secura are delighted to announce a partnership with workload security specialist, HyTrust, to offer HyTrust DataControl virtual machine level encryption to customers as a service on flexible, monthly terms.

Fully managed by Secura, HyTrust DataControl can be delivered as either a stand-alone solution or as part of Secura’s comprehensive Web Protect online security suite.


Many data encryption technologies will only encrypt on a platform level, or premium license editions of software would need to be purchased to access encryption, making them expensive options to implement, with lengthy minimum contract terms.

DataControl allows encryption at rest to be applied on a per virtual machine basis, so only those specific parts of a platform that hold sensitive or regulated data need to be encrypted, making it incredibly cost-effective for businesses to implement and protect their data.

DataControl also works with very little of the performance impact that is traditionally associated with data encryption. It offloads AES encryption operations to the AES-NI extensions integrated into the Intel Xeon CPUs in Secura’s hypervisor hosts, minimising the overhead of encryption operations on platform performance.

Vilnius, Lithuania – With a focus on individuals as well as small businesses, Lithuanian-based web hosting company Hostens has introduced a VPN service. Hostens VPN service is safe, fast, and reliable. Furthermore, it is available in three continents: Europe, North America, and Asia.

As a significant part of everyday applications is unsafe, according to Hostens CEO Arvydas Strausas, Virtual Private Network (VPN) is used to ensure users’ private browsing, online privacy and security, while they communicate over the internet.


“We use plenty of various applications each day. In fact, not all of them are secure. At the end of the day, insecure browsing can end with a theft of our passwords or other personal information. Basically, the VPN service is one of the most reliable solutions to protect ourselves from it”, – sums up Mrs Strausas.

Ad networks track their potential customers from site to site, internet providers log the pages they have visited, while hackers target internet users if there is even a slightest possibility to do that. When using the VPN service, the internet traffic is encrypted, thus making it unreadable. Therefore, such data as your location or information about sites visited cannot be tracked. Based on the expertise of online security professionals, VPN service puts another layer of protection and significantly reduces the number of criminal actions on the internet.

Hostens VPN encrypts traffic with AES-256. Also, this system does not require complicated and time-consuming set-up processes.

Cisco and Verizon successfully conducted the trial of Information-Centric Networking (ICN) technology for simplifying networks and enhancing user experience. The trial was conducted in a lab at Verizon Innovation Center, on Cisco’s open source ICN software, which is built on the technology it built by acquiring PARC division from Xerox last year.

Arlington Heights, IL – GigeNET, an innovator in resilient managed cloud and dedicated hosting, announced, through their subsidiary GigeNET Cloud, a new cloud server offering, GigeNET Cloud Lite.

“Our classic cloud product allowed for extreme levels of granular control over system resources with the ability to scale memory by the megabyte. However, this form of control is no longer a common use case. Instead, customers have grown accustomed to consuming public clouds in a package form, and our Lite Cloud product reflects this reality,” said Ameen Pishdadi, founder, and president of GigeNET Cloud.

GigeNET’s Lite cloud product offers self-healing SAN, high availability, live migrations, seamless failover, fastest route optimization, and much more.

Cloud Lite comes in three forms Balanced, Core, and Max:

  • Cloud Lite Balanced offers a standard mix of both memory and compute power allocation. These cloud servers provide a best of breed experience for a wide range of applications.
  • Cloud Lite Core offers an increased amount of compute necessary for applications that are CPU intensive. The Core family is suited for high computational scientific workloads, high-trafficked websites, and online gaming.
  • Cloud Lite Max offers increased memory for high-performance applications. The Max family is excellent for dev environments, performance-intensive databases, and the like. In the next iteration of Max packages, memory will scale up to 64GB with possible future increases likely.

“GigeNET Cloud Lite may not have the same level of control as our classic offering, but, like our classic cloud product, it does score consistently higher in both performance and reliability tests when compared to other clouds. We wanted to make sure we kept the innovations GigeNET is known for without compromise and I think the team did just that,” Joe De Paolo, SVP of Products at GigeNET.

GigeNET’s Cloud Lite offering runs on their standardized KVM platform backed Xeon-D hardware for consistent high-performance and availability.
