HyTrust, which sells virtualization security that supports VMware vSphere data centers, said it was awarded three patents by the U.S. Patent and trademark Office. One patent represents the basis of its HyTrust Appliance (HTA), which automates virtualized infrastructure access control and log reporting. Another patent covers Adaptive Configuration, which monitors the state of hypervisors and resources across the virtualized environment. Finally, Intelligent Security Control System (ISCS) covers the third patent, which addresses the process of automatically discovering and categorizing metadata, behavior and administrator-defined security controls for different types of virtualized services and resources in realtime, the company said.
