EMC (NYSE: EMC) has bought security provider CloudLink for an undisclosed amount in a move to address data security requirements of clients, CRN reported Friday.

Matt Brown writes Ottawa, Canada-based CloudLink will form part of EMC’s federation enterprise hybrid cloud and continue its membership in the Microsoft Azure ecosystem.

Chad Sakac, president of global systems engineering at EMC, told CRN the company intends to make encryption a feature of its hybrid cloud service with the CloudLink acquisition, according to the report.

CloudLink works to encrypt workloads across the Amazon Web Services (NASDAQ: AMZN), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Azure, IBM (NYSE: IBM) SoftLayer and VMware‘s (NYSE: VMW) vCLoud platforms, CloudLink says.

An EMC technology partner since 2013, CloudLink has combined its encryption offering with EMC’s disaster recover-as-a-service product, CRN reports.
