TYSONS CORNER, VA April 21, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — EMC has acquired Canadian hybrid cloud encryption company CloudLink for an undisclosed sum, GovCon Wire reported Monday.
EMC’s Chad Sakac indicated that the acquisition will become an “integral” component of EMC’s Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud integrated package of services, software and hardware, according to CRN’s report Friday.
“CloudLink will be loosely integrated with the next major release, and then tightly integrated in the version afterwards,” Sakac, president of global systems engineering at EMC, wrote in a blog post Wednesday.
“Our plan is to make encryption a ‘feature’ — so not try to extract material ‘license fees’ — and make things really, really simple.”
