Value added distribution firm emt Distribution has announced that it is now offering security solutions from Catbird, specifically focused virtualisation.
Catbird’s virtualisation security solutions portfolio includes a complete range of solutions that can protect virtual environments from internal and external threats, replace multiple physical security gateways with virtualised versions, and provide a portable virtualised desktop to endpoint users.
“Virtualisation is playing an ever more important role in corporate networking environments,” said Nandini Sapru, Sales Director, emt Distribution. “While it creates opportunities for hardware platform consolidation and cost savings, it also presents multiple implementation and security challenges. The security for virtualisation product space has not been tapped well enough. While many antivirus vendors offer malware detection and prevention in the virtualised space, Catbird offers much more, such as logical zoning, data leakage prevention, and NAC within the virtualised space.”
Catbird’s flagship product, Software Defined Security, is loaded on the mesh of a virtualised system. This offers control components for NAC, net flow, vulnerability scanning, IPS, firewalling, and monitoring of the virtualised network from the mesh. Further, the solution offers logical zoning policy based security and enforcement of compliance requirements.
Speaking about virtualisation security solutions from Catbird, Sapru added, ”Many virtualised infrastructures are costly, complex, and do not scale according to the growing requirements of the organisation. When data or network security breaches happen, ineffective reporting leads to time loss in recognising the predators, or the root cause of the situation. Catbird offers a complete reporting module to mitigate such issues. Many products on the market offer security for virtualised environments. However, Catbird offers many additional unique features such as host based IDS/IPS, configuration auditing of virtual machines, hypervisor protection, vulnerability assessment of each machine on the hypervisor, and automated compliance framework monitoring.”
