Modern Hybrid Cloud Made Fast and Simple
Many organizations today seek the simplicity of a turnkey hybrid cloud that integrates leading software, infrastructure, and services from the vendors of their choice, all delivered from a single strategic partner as a cloud service. This approach accelerates deployment and simplifies operational complexity to enable customers to quickly deploy their hybrid cloud.
HPE GreenLake for VMware will provide customers with a fully integrated and modern hybrid cloud experience. Customers will benefit from a true cloud experience coupled with the benefit of purchasing only the amount of infrastructure they require through a pay-as-you-go cloud consumption model. Customers will also have the flexibility to determine the best environment for operating their hybrid cloud. VMware Cloud can be fully integrated across the HPE GreenLake portfolio including HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise and customers will be able to deploy on-premises, in colocation facilities or at the edge, all managed by HPE GreenLake.
The HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform provides customers and partners with a unified experience, and easy access to more than 70 cloud services. Today, HPE GreenLake supports more than 120,000 users, powers more than two million connected devices, and manages more than one exabyte of data with customers worldwide. Among the top 100 HPE customers, nearly 80 percent have already adopted the HPE GreenLake platform. Organizations benefit from one platform from which to automate, orchestrate, and run their hybrid cloud strategy.
VMware Cloud delivers a modern multi-cloud infrastructure on any cloud, with built-in Kubernetes, integrated security and the best possible TCO. VMware Cloud makes modern application development and deployment faster, easier, and less expensive by making Kubernetes part of the core infrastructure platform. VMware Cloud is more secure by design, enabling micro-segmentation to stop modern lateral threats that move within and across cloud and data center environments. HPE GreenLake customers will be able to extend VMware Cloud environments to a variety of colocation and edge environments, bringing cloud capacity to the places where distributed applications need it most.

Arculix | November 21, 2022
SecureAuth, a leader in access management and authentication, today announced its Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric to further strengthen the technology to enable organizations for passwordless continuous authentication. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is a technology framework that delivers authentication driven by AI/ML behavioral modeling, continuous risk scoring and eliminates logging in making passwords obsolete. For users, it’s a one-and-done event for accessing their relevant apps, VDI or SSO. For companies, it’s a robust authentication with continuous authentication in the background without any friction to the user.
“Historically, a single source to define and administer policy and processes for all users has been absent, Fraud, credential stuffing and attacks will continue to evolve as bad actors thwart existing security approaches. SecureAuth’s Universal Authentication Fabric delivers the first risk-based analytics approach as a consolidated backbone for continuous, multi-factor, and passwordless authentication with the highest level of security as well as a frictionless experience for users.”
Paul Trulove, CEO of SecureAuth
Between authenticating to the workstation, an SSO portal or federated web apps, VDIs, VPN, and PAM solutions, the typical user authenticates 16 times a day using three different sets of username and password. This is simultaneously insecure and a poor user experience. With Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric, users can login once and securely access the applications needed to do their job. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric allows users to attain a level of assurance needed to authenticate with its patented behavioral AI/ML risk analytics engine. To ensure there is no account takeover (ATO), it generates a score at the beginning of a user logging in that is used to grant access to web apps, servers and services without requiring another factor check. This removes the need for siloed systems to authenticate users.
“SecureAuth’s Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is the underlying element for the new 360-degree cybersecurity perimeter that every enterprise needs: Continuous, Holistic and Adaptive,” said Alfredo Estirado, CEO of Grupo TRC. “As a key partner of SecureAuth, we are excited to offer this to our customers across various geographies.”
Key capabilities include expansion of passwordless features into endpoints, including access to persistent and non-persistent VDIs, in the same passwordless way a user authenticates to a standard machine. This enables a passwordless authentication journey whether in or out of the office. This Universal Authentication Fabric also supports our device trust support for seamless passwordless authentication for transient virtual desktops and physical desktops.
