Added Support for Hyper-V Combined with Already Available VMware Protection Increases Network Security in Virtual Environments
Mountain View, Calif., March 29, 2011 – InfoExpress, a leading network security solutions provider, today announced that its CyberGatekeeper Family of Network Access Control (NAC) products now supports Microsoft Windows Hyper-V for virtualized Windows server environments.
Many organizations are embracing virtual computing to streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve service quality. Just like the policy server appliance, CyberGatekeeper on Hyper-V supports out-of-band enforcement methods for switches and wireless controllers and audits all devices to ensure they meet pre-defined security policies, including current anti-virus protection, latest system updates, and configuration. Additional policies can quarantine or remediate endpoints that are out of compliance.
“To optimize computing resources, many customers are turning to virtualized server environments,” said Stacey Lum, CEO of InfoExpress. “CyberGatekeeper has numerous out-of-band enforcement methods, making it the ideal choice for customers looking to add NAC by leveraging their virtual computing environments without major infrastructure expenditures.”
By offering support on Hyper-V and VMware in addition to physical appliances, InfoExpress lets customers choose the appropriate NAC implementation that best meets their needs. For example, an organization with more users in one region can host the virtual appliance on a larger server. At smaller regions, the CyberGatekeeper virtual appliance can share a smaller server with other virtual servers. If needs change, increasing or decreasing the capacity of a virtual appliance is easy and requires almost no down time.
CyberGatekeeper is ideal for virtual environments and centralized deployments in distributed networks. With many out-of-band enforcement methods, CyberGatekeeper servers can be placed in data centers or other central locations. In contrast, in-line NAC solutions need to be located closer to routers and switches to block traffic and generally require more servers.
