Implementing automated security to protect hypervisors
The hypervisor is at the core of a virtualized computing environment, running all of the guest machines and, by extension, their applications. If compromised, the entire virtualized data center is at risk.
Catbird vSecurity comes with a default TrustZone named HypervisorShield that gives a security architect the power to rapidly implement network level access controls to protect the hypervisors.
With Catbird HypervisorShield, it is quick and easy to implement a security envelope around the hypervisors and management nodes via Catbird TrustZones. As an example of application specific logical zoning, the “application” is the infrastructure components themselves (the hypervisors and management nodes).
Specific purpose logical zoning implemented with the vSecurity TrustZone Hypervisorshield provides hypervisor protection. All other Catbird vSecurity Control Components can be configured simultaneously as well.
