Trend Micro has launched the public beta of a new cloud encryption product, claiming an industry first in the process.  SecureCloud provides users with sole control over the encryption keys, meaning they decide when and where these keys are deployed.

Rik Ferguson, told IT PRO this is the first product on the market that hands over cloud encryption to the customer in this way.  “Without control you don’t have security – that’s a given,” Ferguson said.  “We need to make sure we offer technologies to businesses that allow them to retain control of their data, because when you take on board a cloud service provider you will, by definition, outsource a lot of control. But you can’t outsource accountability.”

The beta is available now and the product, which supports the Amazon EC2, Eucalyptus and VMware platforms, is expected to be released generally in the fourth quarter of 2010. Cloud Server Encryption will become a huge issue in the next couple months.
