Catbird Stalks VMware Attackers Channel Partners Online
Article Excerpt: Chris Tamblyn, SVP of product management for virtualization security vendor Catbird, sent along a list of indicators that could reveal that a customer’s VMware infrastructure has been compromised by the vCenter vulnerability reported earlier this month. The flaw could allow intruders to gain system access to VMware hypervisors. 


Are Your VMs Talking Behind Your Back? VMUG Compass Issue 2
Article Excerpt: the latest Gartner Hype Cycle report on cloud security published on July 17, 2015, Gartner states: “With advanced threats bypassing traditional firewalling and intrusion prevention and antivirus prevention mechanisms gaining a foothold and then moving laterally within enterprises, there has been an increased interest in further segmentation of data centers for ‘east-west’ traffic. The increasingly dynamic nature of data center workloads makes traditional segmentation strategies complex, if not impossible to apply. Further, the shift to microservice architectures for applications has also increased the amount of east-west traffic and further complicated the ability of traditional fixed firewalls to provide this segmentation.”  What can you do about this?

...use software that is able to provide a complete inventory of your virtual assets, allows you to organize those assets into logical groups, and then monitor and analyze flows between the logical groups that you created.  - Donald Kaelin, Solution Architect - Catbird
