Catbird Joins the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance

McAfee Customers Will Enjoy Common Security Management Across Physical and Virtual Networks and Systems

Catbird announced that it has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) to provide organizations with the solution for securing virtual infrastructure. Under the SIA program, Catbird will integrate V-Security with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software, addressing head-on the security and compliance implications of moving from "P to V" and enabling customers to seamlessly extend their security and compliance enforcement strategies across both companies' platforms and both virtual and physical networks.

"We are delighted to add Catbird to the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance," said Joe Gottlieb, vice president of corporate strategy and technology alliances, McAfee. "Virtual environments present new security challenges and Catbird has responded with innovative network security offerings that complement McAfee's system security suites and management solutions for virtualized data centers and desktops."

Catbird's V-Security product suite provides security, visibility, change control, separation of duties, and validation by deploying a virtual appliance inside VMware ESX or Citrix XenServer. V-Security combines network security technologies with hypervisor and VM data to deliver benefits such as policy compliance, and enforcement of virtual network segmentation, server sprawl management and intrusion prevention. Integration with McAfee ePO software will enable customers to consolidate these capabilities with a broad portfolio of virtual and physical, network and system security solutions.

"Enterprise customers expect to use the same tools to manage security across both their physical and virtual infractructure," said Edmundo Costa, Catbird COO. "With ePolicy Orchestrator software integration, McAfee customers will be able to employ a single dashboard to configure, monitor and enforce the security posture of their entire network -- both virtual and physical. The combined service of the two companies brings broad-based and in-depth comprehensive security and compliance to current and future state-of-the-art data centers."

Catbird is a pioneer in the virtual security industry. Its V-Security suite is a comprehensive security and compliance solution for virtual and physical infrastructures. V-Security is a fully-automated Security-as-a-Service solution built upon a stateless architecture that is 100% plug-and-play for both physical and virtual environments. V-Security includes VMShield, a dedicated security solution specifically designed to control and secure the virtual machine console, and HypervisorShield to guard against unauthorized hypervisor network access and attack. Via its IPS/IDS, Rogue VM monitoring, firewall and policy enforcement, Catbird is one-stop shopping for the most critical areas in virtual network security.

The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
