Rescale Delivers Secure HPC to the Public Sector

San Francisco, CA, November 9, 2018 – Rescale, the leader in enterprise big compute in the cloud, announced today they are delivering secure HPC to the public sector.

Rescale meets or exceeds the strictest industry security standards and conforms to enterprise accepted assurance programs and controls. Each year Rescale is independently 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 both ITAR and EAR compliant. Additionally for those concerned with safeguarding medical information, Rescale’s platform solutions are HIPAA compliant. Leading the industry, Rescale has been entrusted with mission-critical and highly sensitive proprietary data by over 125 enterprises globally.

Joris Poort, CEO, Rescale says, “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. In our core platform development we have taken numerous steps towards protecting customers through the security of our platform. We are proud to be the first HPC platform solution in the industry to be ITAR and EAR compliant, and the only HPC platform company that is comprehensively independently SOC 2 Type 2 attested. Currently we are working towards FedRAMP authorization in early 2019.”

Rescale ensures the security of its customers’ data from the outset. Its platform solutions perform automated provisioning, configuration, and updating on all compute and storage resources, reflecting up-to-date security best practices. Rescale also offers comprehensive enterprise controls, allowing administrators to configure a broad range of policies, including fine-grained budgets, access controls and more. Rescale unifies HPC management with a single solution that offers turnkey industry-leading security and compliance capabilities for both hybrid and cloud HPC deployments.

Rescale takes several steps towards the security of their managed data centers. Each of the managed data centers in the US are FedRAMP authorized, allowing Rescale customers to take advantage of strict, standardized security requirements on the infrastructure layer for mission-critical workloads. FedRAMP authorization means customers can expect the most rigorous standards 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 and have uninterruptible power and backup systems, plus fire and flood prevention at storage sites.

Rescale’s data encryption methods in the software layer ensure data stays encrypted at every step of the process, both in transit and at rest. Transfer encryption is enabled with high-grade SSL, and encryption at rest leverages 256-bit AES standards. Workloads always run in private, closed clusters with kernel-encrypted hard drives and all encryption keys are securely managed and stored in separate locations.

Rescale continuously invests in development to implement the latest practices and deliver the best possible enterprise security standard. This strong commitment to Rescale’s customers is reflected in today’s announcement of security certifications including FedRAMP authorization slated for the first half of 2019.
