ATLANTA, GA – June 11, 2015 — / — Today at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Cirrity announced it is integrating Cisco Intercloud Fabric with Cirrity’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. With Cisco Intercloud Fabric and Cirrity’s Cisco Powered IaaS, companies subject to compliance regulations can offload sensitive data to Cirrity’s secure, compliant, encrypted IaaS cloud, segregating it from other on-premise information and systems and substantially reducing their audit footprint.

“Cirrity IaaS is already a leading secure, compliant solution available directly to channel partners for their customers,” said Cirrity President and Chief Technology Officer Dan Timko. “With Cisco Intercloud Fabric, our partners can offer customers a sensible, uncomplicated alternative to on-premise storage and management of audit-sensitive data.”

With Cisco Intercloud Fabric technology, organizations will be able to transfer data to, and access it from, their cloud environments hosted at Cirrity’s secure, compliant US data center, and the data will be secured, encrypted and policy controlled in transit. With this configuration, an enterprise can enjoy the asset portability of a truly hybrid cloud, with visibility and management of both environments from an on-premise cloud command center. Cirrity plans to release its Hybrid Cloud capability built upon Cisco Intercloud Fabric as a generally available product in the fourth quarter of 2015.

“Customers want freedom to choose the right public cloud for their business requirements, regardless of underlying technologies like hypervisors,” said Gee Rittenhouse, SVP Cloud & Virtualization Group at Cisco. “Cirrity, a channel-only cloud provider, helps companies offload sensitive data and enable businesses to control their cloud environment through a single pane of glass, by placing workloads in the right cloud and allowing the networking and security policies to follow that workload.”

For firms subject to the stringent security standards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and other regulations, securing sensitive data in-house often causes the entire data and systems framework to become subject to security regulations. With a Cirrity hybrid cloud and Cisco Intercloud Fabric, these organizations can eliminate this additional data management and security burden.

In addition to the new hybrid cloud offering, Cirrity’s reseller-only, “as a service” solutions include vStream™ disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), remote desktops as a service (DaaS), secure hybrid cloud infrastructure solutions (IaaS) and backup as a service (BaaS). All are based on a secure, compliant cloud infrastructure built on Cisco’s enterprise-class cloud architectures.
