Catbird announced the beta release of its V-Security virtual infrastructure security for Citrix XenServer. According to the company, this is the industry’s first best-practices, broad-based security solution specifically designed to guard against unauthorized access to the virtual network used by the virtual infrastructure platform, preventing attacks on both the hypervisor and guest virtual machines.
Delivering continuous, automated 24×7 monitoring focused on precise guest OS vulnerabilities and known attack signatures, Catbird’s V-Security is the only service to proactively and comprehensively secure a virtualization deployment. In addition, Catbird’s V-Security for Citrix XenServer validates, verifies and enforces corporate security policy; monitors regulatory compliance of the virtual infrastructure; and controls virtual server sprawl.
Catbird V-Security’s coverage includes rogue virtual-device monitoring; Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS); policy compliance; and vulnerability monitoring to servers running multiple virtual machines.
