Achieve sovereign resilience at scale

To address today’s cybersecurity challenges, government and defence cloud infrastructure must be designed, built and managed in a way that strengthens national resilience. Auditable secure provenance is an essential part of this puzzle, along with ensuring local ownership and management of every part of cloud service delivery – including its underlying infrastructure.

Implement scalable sovereign cloud infrastructure in the data centre or at the edge

Government and defence data doesn’t always reside within the four walls of a data centre any more – these days it might well be stored on edge infrastructure for a smart cities project, or in the back of a military vehicle for enabling the collection and analysis of performance data.

HyperCloud is optimised for power-efficient density, enabling scale in even the most unusual installation circumstances. Engineered to maintain data durability even alongside multiple system failures, HyperCloud helps maintain service availability even when it’ll be a while before you can send someone out to do on-site maintenance.

 

Mitigate the risk hardware trojans pose to the collection, analysis and dissemination of defence surveillance and intelligence data

Subtle, malicious modifications to computing hardware can fundamentally undermine the security of your solution, rendering software-based security controls useless. These compromised systems then threaten the reliability and integrity of defence data.

SoftIron is the only data infrastructure manufacturer to date that offers the capacity for customers to conduct complete integrity audits, enabling a “zero trust” approach to security from your hardware level up.

And with HyperCloud’s support for data immutability features, you can build a solution with greater resilience to ransomware attacks.

FIPS-140 compliant auditable encryption modules

For certain government organisations and entities that service those government agencies, passing security audits for technology choices and implementations is non-optional, to ensure that government-approved encryption standards are used for potentially sensitive data.

HyperCloud uses FIPS-140 compatible cryptographic modules which enable customers to pass security audits of FISMA Systems at the “High” level, including equivalent evaluations such as FedRAMP High and DoD SRG IL-5.

This is only strengthened further by our unique secure provenance approach to hardware engineering, manufacturing and assembly, which delivers a forensic chain of custody for our products.

 

HyperCloud Key Features & Benefits

All this is built with Softlron’s innovative technology strategy, woven together with automated provisioning and management. With no public cloud vendor reliance and no public network connectivity required, this low power, energy efficient solution is infinitely scalable, and features:

  • A fully integrated and embedded hybrid cloud control plane which reduces the management footprint.
  • Fully automated life cycle management, enabling hands-free non-disruptive upgrades, making it easier to keep your environment protected.
  • Multi-site federation for managing applications across multiple clouds
  • Secure multi-tenancy features such as quotas, a customizable service catalogue, metered service, and role-based access, giving users a “cloud like” experience
  • Virtualised, containerized, bare metal workloads within the same infrastructure, enabling more efficient resource usage

Why SoftIron

Designed, not assembled

From day one, our unique, “task specific” approach to design and manufacturing has enabled us to deliver our vision of a true, turnkey cloud experience for the enterprise. Based on our innovative technology strategy, HyperCloud’s intelligent cloud fabric was designed – not assembled – from the ground up to radically simplify cloud infrastructure, delivery and consumption. This allows you to confidently build the right size and shape cloud for your business without introducing the complexity of multiple, superfluous firmware, operating systems, or hardware components.

Fully auditable secure provenance

Where other manufacturers opt to cut costs by outsourcing manufacture to third parties (and therefore passing on the supply chain risks to their customers) SoftIron takes the opposite approach.

SoftIron has in-house, full control over the design and manufacture of our products. Because of this, we can readily enable infrastructure integrity audits and system verification at a granular level by third parties.
