Virtualization startup HyTrust launches with $5M backing

HyTrust, a startup that’s developed an appliance to provide a single point of control and oversight for virtual data centers, is launching its flagship product today. The Mountain View, Calif. company says its HyTrust Appliance will make companies more comfortable using virtualization to deploy their most critical applications because it will ensure the same security and compliance assurances as is possible with physical infrastructure.

The company’s launch partners include VMWare, Symantec, Cisco, and Citrix, and it has raised $5.5 from Trident Capital (which led the round) and Epic Ventures.
