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® 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.

 

Traditional Hypervisor Management

 

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).


TrustZone® Hypervisor Management

 

Specific purpose logical zoning implemented with the Catbird TrustZone HypervisorShield provides hypervisor protection. All other Catbird Control Components can be configured simultaneously as well.
