Congrats to HyTrust

Congratulations are in order for virtualization security company HyTrust, who within the last few days has had a flurry of activity. I’ve met HyTrust’s CEO several times (he’s a great guy, by the way) and I’ve followed the company since their early days; personally, I think it’s great that they’re seeing some success.

The first big piece of news was that HyTrust hired Jim Gannon, a former VMware executive, to serve as the VP of Sales. The full press release for that announcement is here.

The second big piece of news comes in the form of this press release announcing that HyTrust has secured $10.5 million in Series B financing, including an investment from Cisco Systems.

The third and final piece of news, and the one that I personally find most exciting, is that HyTrust has been named one of ten finalists for the “Most Innovative Company at RSA Conference 2010” award. Congratulations on all three counts!
