EMC, RSA, VMware and Intel have announced a new collaboration to introduce a framework encompassing security and compliance for cloud computing in the enterprise space, key executives have revealed.

At a media briefing in San Francisco on Monday, before the start of this year's RSA Conference, executives from the various companies detailed plans to utilise Intel's new Westmere processing chip, which will feature a new platform called Trusted Execution Technology (TXT).

"Today, most organisations have little to no visibility of what's occurring within the infrastructure layers of clouds, making it impossible to verify their security," Pat Gelsinger, president and chief operating officer for EMC's information infrastructure products, said in the statement.

"Together, our companies are demonstrating that internal and external clouds can be visible, measurable and reportable for the secure management of a company's most important business processes."
