2014-04-20 20:01:47 - New range for specialised security solutions for virtualisation from Catbird to feed the growing demand for secure virtualisation in Middle East
emt Distribution, the leading international value added distribution company today announced that it is now offering security solutions from Catbird, specifically focused at 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 and secure virtualised desktop to endpoint users.
"Virtualisation is playing an ever more important role in corporate networking environments," explained Nandini Sapru, Director Sales at 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 virtualized space, Catbird offers much more, such as logical zoning, data leakage prevention, and NAC within the virtualized space."
Catbird is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California, USA. The company has a unique product offering that substantially improves security within the virtual network infrastructure. By using Catbird's solutions, a network administrator can eliminate costly and ineffective network security devices. Catbird also offers auditing services for the network and improves time to market by expediting secure build and release processes.
Catbird’s flagship product called 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 further added, said, “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,"
emt Distribution is authorised distributor for Catbird in Middle East including countries like KSA, UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt among others.
