Editors Cite Security Solution Developer As Among the Most Innovative Vendors in the Virtualization Space
SCOTTS VALLEY, CA – May 28, 2013 – Catbird®, the leader in security and compliance for virtualized and private cloud data centers, today announced it has been named to CRN’s 2013 Virtualization 50 list. The annual listing highlights the companies delivering the most innovative virtualization solutions available.
Selected by CRN editors, the 2013 CRN Virtualization 50 recognizes the vendors that are addressing an emerging market need for the channel and offering the most innovative solutions. The list is designed to help solution providers identify and evaluate virtualization products and programs to help grow their business.
Catbird’s next generation vSecurity® Software Defined Security Solution delivers cost-efficient integrated threat management for virtual infrastructure. Its broad network security orchestration is an essential tool in maintaining compliance for regulated data centers moving to virtualized and cloud-based computing.
“Solution providers have plenty of options when it comes to virtualization technology. However, understanding the diversity of vendors and their solution nuances can be incredibly daunting,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “CRN’s annual list aims to cut down the noise and highlight the most innovative technology vendors that are not only delivering powerful virtualization technology, but also helping VARs capitalize on the market opportunity for such solutions.”
Among its innovations, Catbird’s vSecurity delivers the continuous protection of a wide array of network security controls – including firewalling, intrusion prevention and netflow - via TrustZones®. TrustZones enable the grouping of virtualized assets into logical policy envelopes, simplifying consistent and speedy configuration, monitoring and enforcement while reducing audit preparation costs and compliance maintenance. Unlike hardware-based security, the vSecurity® Software Defined Security solution sees deep into the virtualized network fabric and scales with the size of the data center.
“We are honored to have CRN recognize our company as a provider of one of the industry’s most cutting- edge virtualization solutions,” said Tamar Newberger, Catbird VP of Marketing. “This is especially gratifying given the fact that CRN this year pared down the competition to 50 from the 100 vendors cited in its 2012 Virtualization 100 list. Our engineers and the customers who inspire them deserve the most accolades, as they have enabled Catbird to become the industry leader a field critical to making the benefits of virtualization and cloud computing available to even the most sensitive of environments.”
