Emt, Catbird partner for security solutions
VAD to supply new range of specialised security solutions for virtualisation in the region
Emt Distribution, a value-added distributor (VAD) has announced that it is now offering security solutions from Catbird for virtualised environments.
Under the accord, Emt will supply the regional channel with Catbird's virtualisation security solutions portfolio including a complete range of solutions that can protect virtual environments from internal and external threats.
"Virtualisation is playing an ever more important role in corporate networking environments," explained Nandini Sapru, director Sales at Emt Distribution. "While it creates opportunities for hardware platform consolidation and cost savings, it also presents multiple implementation and security challenges. The security for virtualisation product space hasn't been tapped well enough. While many antivirus vendors offer malware detection and prevention in the virtualised space, Catbird offers much more, such as logical zoning, data leakage prevention and NAC within the virtualised space."
Sapru added: "Many virtualised infrastructures are costly, complex and don't scale according to the growing requirements of the organisation. When data or network security breaches happen, ineffective reporting can lead to time loss in recognising the predators or the root cause of the problem. Catbird offers a complete reporting module to mitigate such issues. Many products on the market offer security for virtualised environments however, Catbird offers many additional unique features such as host based IDS/IPS, configuration auditing of virtual machines, hypervisor protection, vulnerability assessment of each machine on the hypervisor and automated compliance framework monitoring."
