SAN JOSE, Calif., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vormetric, a leader in enterprise data security for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced that Kevin Peterson, Information Security and Risk Management for global healthcare market leader McKesson, will speak at the Gartner Security Summit in Washington DC on Wednesday, June 25th, 2014 at 9:30 AM in room Potomac 1. Mr. Peterson will review how McKesson overcame security, compliance, performance, and political obstacles to migrate multiple software applications to both public and private clouds.
The session will include discussion of McKesson's award winning implementation, and detail how the Vormetric Data Security Platform encrypts cloud data with multitenant policy operations for the different lines of business, and enables encryption key custodianship to remain on premise.
Also available from Vormetric is a full case study for the complete McKesson implementation of Vormetric. Every segment McKesson operates in (pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and information technologies) must contend with a large number of regulatory standards for securing data. Identifying a solution for deployment without affecting operations or security – and subsequently slowing down the business process – made for a difficult task. Additionally, McKesson's rapid growth led to data spreading throughout many disparate locations.
McKesson chose Vormetric after a rigorous multi-month research and evaluation period. Vormetric met all of the company's stringent technical and business qualifications and scored the highest marks during McKesson's testing process.
