VM in the Mainstream Virtual Machine technology is going mainstream. Motivated by cost savings; server consolidation; disaster recovery; and improved business continuity, organizations are changing the way they deploy applications and desktops. But industry pundits agree that full-on deployment of virtual machines has been impeded by a critical weakness: security. Traditional security architectures and products are inadequate for this new topology. The Catbird V-Agent is different, built with virtualization in mind from the ground up, delivering the same bullet-proof protection IT chiefs have come to expect for the “physical” world.
Securing a virtual host does not only involve applying the same security controls to virtual networks as were applied to their physical counterparts. Virtualization introduces a new layer of abstraction entirely—the Hypervisor. Hypervisor exploits have grown 35% in the last several years, with more surely on their way. Catbird’s patent-pending HypervisorShield protects and defends this essential component of a virtual deployment.
Catbird’s hypervisorshield ensures compliance with security policies for protecting the hypervisor from network attack or unauthorized changes. Catbird’s hypervisorshield is the industry’s only dedicated solution for hypervisor security.
