Following Equinix’s Lead, Interxion Gets Into Encryption Key Management

Interxion, one of Europe’s largest data center providers, announced an encryption key management service Wednesday designed to work in cloud and hybrid environments, becoming the latest leading colocation provider to launch such a service.
