Catbird Launches Hypervisor Security

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. -- Catbird, provider of the only comprehensive security solution for virtual and physical networks, and developer of the V-Agent virtual appliance, today announced the launch of HypervisorShield™, the industry’s first dedicated comprehensive security solution specifically designed to guard against unauthorized hypervisor network access and attack.

HypervisorShield, the latest service in Catbird’s V-Security product, extends best practice security protection to virtualization’s critical hypervisor layer, thwarting both inadvertent management error and malicious threats. Delivering continuous, automated 24x7 monitoring focused on the precise vulnerabilities, known attack signatures and guest machine access of the hypervisor management network, HypervisorShield is the only service to proactively secure this essential component of a virtualization deployment.

“You can’t protect what you can’t detect,” said Edmundo Costa, Catbird COO. “Most customers are surprised to learn that their existing end-point security mechanisms can’t secure the virtual infrastructure. With network vulnerabilities increasing year over year, IT chiefs who depend on virtual infrastructure for business operations should not be lulled into believing their traditional security topology is adequate for the new virtual world.”
