HyTrust, provider of tools that allow system administrators to more closely monitor compliance, security and workflow in their cloud computing environments, has brought in $10.5 million in a second round of funding. Based in Mountain View, Calif., the company says it will use the new money to continue product development and beef up its sales and marketing strategies.

The recent round of capital came from Granite Ventures, Trident Capital, Epic Ventures and Cisco Systems. This is the second investment round Cisco has participated in this week, contributing to the $5.5 million raised by API management startup Mashery yesterday. HyTrust has raised $16 million to date.
