Congratulations to the HyTrust team for completing the acquisition of Data Gravity and their Series E of investment.  Trident Capital is proud to be founding and lead investor in HyTrust. 

Given HyTrust’s focus on workloads and DataGravity’s focus on data, the two products should turn out to be pretty complementary. “The acquisition will accelerate the expansion of HyTrust’s platform capabilities and capitalize on the high-growth cloud security market,” writes Eric Chiu, HyTrust’s co-founder and president, in today’s announcement. “DataGravity’s data discovery and classification capabilities support HyTrust’s mission to deliver a security policy framework that provides customers with full visibility, insight and enforcement of policy across workloads. We couldn’t be more excited.”
