Today Rescale announced that the company is now delivering secure HPC in the Cloud to the public sector.

Our customers rely on Rescale for meeting and exceeding some of the most stringent industry security standards for protection of their sensitive data. Security is our top priority at Rescale,” said Rescale CEO Joris Poort. “In our platform development we have taken several steps towards protecting customers through the security of our platform which is why we are proud to be the first HPC platform solution in the industry to be ITAR and EAR compliant. Additionally, we are the only HPC platform today that is both independently SOC 2 Type 2 attested and HIPAA compliant. Currently we are working towards FedRAMP authorization in early 2019.”

Rescale meets or exceeds the strictest industry standards, is independently audited, and conforms to assurance programs and controls. Each year Rescale is audited to ensure SOC 2 Type 2 attestation, which evaluates the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of Rescale’s platform, data, policies, and procedures. Rescale’s platform solutions are ITAR and EAR compliant. Additionally, the Rescale platform is HIPAA compliant. Rescale has been entrusted with mission-critical and highly sensitive proprietary data by over 125 enterprises globally.

Rescale ensures the security of its customers’ data from the outset. The Rescale platform performs automated provisioning, configuration, and updating on all compute and storage resources, reflecting up-to-date best security practices. Rescale also offers comprehensive enterprise administrative controls allowing the IT administrator to configure policies ranging from fine-grained budgets to login requirements. Rescale unifies HPC management by offering industry-leading security and compliance capabilities.

Rescale takes several steps towards the security of their managed data centers. All of the managed data centers in the US are FedRAMP authorized allowing for all Rescale customers to take advantage of strict, standardized security requirements for mission-critical workloads. FedRAMP authorization means customers can expect consistency and confidence in security across all of Rescale’s managed data centers. All Rescale managed data centers employ physical security and strict access policies, including biometric entry authentication and 24/7 armed guards. All components of essential systems have N + 1 or better redundancy. The data centers have uninterruptible power and backup systems, plus fire and flood prevention at storage sites.

Rescale’s industry-leading data encryption methods ensure data stays encrypted at every step of the process, during transit and at rest – transfer encryption with high-grade SSL and at rest with 256-bit AES. Workloads always run in private, closed clusters with kernel-encrypted hard drives and all encryption keys are securely stored in separate locations.

The security of Rescale’s platform solutions is continually improving, including today’s announcement of progress towards FedRAMP security authorization which is slated for the first half of 2019.
