Catbird 6.0 Provides Security Policy Automation and Enforcement Across Leading Cloud Platforms
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Catbird, the leader in security policy automation and enforcement for private clouds and virtual infrastructure, today announced the forthcoming availability of its flagship cloud security and compliance solution, Catbird 6.0, with security policy automation for OpenStack. Catbird is the first company to deliver security policy automation for private and hybrid cloud environments, enabling security policy to move across on- and off-premise infrastructure on all three leading cloud platforms.
Edmundo Costa, CEO, Catbird, said:
"With private and hybrid cloud adoption projected for rapid growth, the increased complexity of cloud environments and the ensuing security concerns present huge challenges to enterprise IT skills and capabilities. At the same time, carriers and service providers require secure and compliant private and hybrid cloud infrastructure. Automated security policies that can be verified and enforced are quickly becoming a necessity across the board. With Catbird 6.0 for OpenStack, we are continuing to deliver on the promise of a platform-agnostic security policy and control delivery solution."
David Monahan, research director, Enterprise Management Associates said:
"As organizations push further into leveraging software-defined solutions like OpenStack, security must evolve to provide protection for each of the components within these virtualized environments. Decoupling and abstracting infrastructure elements alters routing and communication within the data center necessitating new, adaptive security tools to manage, visualize and streamline the process."
