Press Release

Harris Corp., EMC and VCE Announced Alliance for Cloud Computing Solutions

Harris, EMC, VCE Plan to Develop Joint Marketing to Accelerate Adoption of Cloud for Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud Solutions

"Cloud computing can change the fundamental nature of enterprise operations enabling growth, improving effectiveness, and reducing costs," said Dale W. Meyerrose, vice president and general manager of Harris Cyber Integrated Solutions.  "Combining the technology and expertise of Harris, RSA, and VCE will produce a next-generation cloud solution based on trusted multi-tenancy and drive the adoption of today's enterprise cloud solutions."

Harris Corporation, EMC Corporation, and the Virtual Computing Environment Company (VCE) on Wednesday announced a strategic alliance to jointly develop and market new trusted multi-tenant cloud solutions to further accelerate the adoption of cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) by commercial and government enterprises. The alliance will focus on maximizing the benefits of multi-tenant cloud solutions --- which optimize resource sharing while providing high levels of isolation to the tenants and quality of service throughout a shared environment.  More importantly, users would be able to have added confidence that the underlying infrastructure has enhanced security and is operating to the specified level of assurance and compliance.

  • Harris, RSA, The Security Division of EMC, and VCE plan to develop new multi-tenant cloud solutions, improving efficiency and introducing a new level of trust in shared environments.
  • Harris patented technology planned to be integrated with the VCE Vblock Infrastructure Platforms and RSA technology and products.
  • Harris, EMC and VCE plan to develop joint marketing for Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud services to accelerate adoption of enterprise cloud computing.

As part of the strategic alliance, development teams from Harris, RSA, and VCE plan to integrate patented Harris trust enablement technologies with the Vblock Infrastructure Platforms to deliver new levels of visibility into the security, performance and availability state of cloud environments hosted by Harris.  Through the combination of Harris' technology and RSA's expertise and customized solutions, customers would be able to experience enhanced security and operations via unparalleled visibility and consolidated control into virtual and cloud infrastructures.

"The core inhibitors to cloud adoption are concerns over secure multi-tenancy.  Organizations require assurances that shared resources don't mean shared data," said Bret Harman, chief technology officer, RSA, The Security Division of EMC.  "Through the combination of Harris' enablement technology and RSA's expertise and solutions such as the recently announced RSA Cloud Trust Authority, we intend to introduce new levels of trust and control in the cloud enabling commercial and government enterprises to realize the inherent benefits of the cloud."

As part of the alliance agreement, the companies also anticipate creating and leveraging migration tools and publishing best practices to help customers migrate applications to Harris' Trusted Enterprise Cloud and its underlying Vblock Infrastructure Platforms from VCE.

"The enterprise market wants to move to the cloud, but needs help getting there," said Todd J. Pavone, senior vice president solutions at VCE.  "Working with Harris and RSA we will help provide additional levels of assurance that customers' hosted environments meet their security and compliance requirements."

Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud is a unique Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering that enables clients to extend and enhance their IT operations resulting in improved operational agility and reduced costs.  Key differentiators in the Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud offering are its proprietary trust enablement technologies, including the Global Trust Repository.  These technologies, combined with Harris' virtualization and automation systems, the Harris Cyber Integration Center and networked facilities provide continuous monitoring, assurance, and attestation that the software and configurations in the cloud environment are deployed and operating according to specification and have not been compromised.
