SDN-Ready Platform To Expand Hypervisor, Firewall and Systems Management Integration, Continuous Monitoring and Compliance Enforcement
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Catbird, the leader in security policy automation and enforcement for private clouds and virtual infrastructure, today announced Catbird 6.0 (formerly Catbird vSecurity®), the latest version of its security automation solution.
Catbird 6.0 brings the automation and agility of the cloud to security automation and compliance enforcement. This new version will extend support for both VMware® and Microsoft® hypervisors while supporting VMware and Cisco® offerings including VMware NSX® and Cisco ACI®. New application programming interfaces (APIs) enable enterprises to automate and enforce security policy with auditing for continuous compliance with integration into their existing management systems. Catbird 6.0 also expands its continuous monitoring capabilities to include extensive configuration checks based on Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) and updates for FISMA, FedRAMP, ISO27001* and PCI DSS 3.0. According to a recent Verizon PCI report, only 9.4% of organizations investigated after a data breach were compliant with PCI Requirement 10, indicating that these organizations had no continuous compliance monitoring practices in place.
"Catbird brings policy and compliance out of the filing cabinet and into the cloud age, transforming these dynamic, self-scaling environments into compliance-aware and precisely controlled systems. Building in continuous monitoring and measurement to standards like PCI makes compliance business-as-usual rather than an afterthought. Our customers realize huge savings by reducing prep time for assessments, ensuring control of in-scope assets and eliminating costly audit disruptions, typically reporting full ROI in under a year," said Edmundo Costa, CEO for Catbird. "Catbird 6.0 delivers unparalleled security automation and compliance enforcement, integrates into existing architecture, and is SDN-ready, ensuring a smooth, policy-led transition to software-defined networking as these solutions become more widely deployed."
Key Features of Catbird 6.0:
Catbird will be showcasing the new 6.0 release at RSA Conference 2014 in San Francisco, Feb. 24-28 2014, in booth 2505. The software is available immediately and a fully-functional evaluation version is available at www.catbird.com/demo.
* Coming soon.
