Catbird vSecurity is the industry’s first and only comprehensive security solution for virtual, cloud and physical infrastructures.
Catbird is the pioneer and leader in the virtualization and cloud security market. With four VMworld Best of Show Finalist Awards, vSecurity® is the first product to deliver a 100% Software-Defined–Security (SDS) architecture required to control the Software-Defined-Network (SDN).
Having been in the network security business for years, Catbird most recently developed its innovative SDS solution as the result of a customer need. Catbird customers were virtualizing and security gaps became apparent: the loss of visibility; the introduction of the hypervisor; the loss of change control; and the pain of manually creating reports and graphs to support compliance posture during an audit. Catbird listened and responded with a purpose-built idea solution for the new software based data center.
The Catbird vSecurity solution is based on logical zoning — TrustZones™ — a location-independent network-based policy enforcement capability. vSecurity policies apply a broad set of network security technical controls to TrustZones to monitor and enforce security for virtualized network components. Catbird security capabilities can span both on-premise and cloud data centers. Of particular value to Catbird partners and customers is the ability to deliver near real-time compliance visualization, workflow and reporting against the leading standards to ensure a positive assurance of control necessary for audits. Catbird partners have accelerated their time to market for compliant services, enabling them to focus on core differentiation while avoiding the risk and complexity of a “build-your-own” strategy.
Catbird innovation has led to other awards and industry recognition including CRN’s 2013 Top 50 Virtualization, the Gartner Group's Cool Vendor 2011, 2010 Government Security News Homeland Security Award Finalist as well as top 3 placement in SearchServerVirtualization’s Product of the Year 2010, amongst numerous other accolades.
