HyTrust has made a strategic investment and technology agreement with In-Q-Tel.

HyTrust, a cloud security automation company, has received a strategic investment and signed a technology agreement with In-Q-Tel, the CIA's private equity group.

The partnership is designed to help secure virtualized and cloud infrastructures by fueling development and enabling the expansion of support operations, In-Q-Tel said. The private equity group invests in commercializing technologies that might benefit the intelligence community.

It will also broaden HyTrust’s reach into the federal space.
