Bluelane's VirtualShield best of Interop!

Greg pinged me on this exclusive news (to be published tomorrow)

"Winning Best of Interop this year is well deserved validation for our state-of-the-art approach to server security," said Jeff Palmer, president and CEO at Blue Lane. “There were more than 100 security vendors exhibiting this year. This was clearly a watershed win for all of us championing signature-free security for virtual and physical servers.”

“The Best of Interop Awards are always an indicator of the most innovative and exciting offerings in these product categories and this year’s winners are no exception,” said Art Wittmann, editor in chief, Network Computing. “Blue Lane and each of the category winners have truly demonstrated superior technology and innovation, and deserve recognition for their contributions to the industry.”

Addressing the unique challenges of virtual infrastructure security, VirtualShield protects guest virtual machines running on VMware Infrastructure 3. VirtualShield delivers the following unique capabilities:

  • Protects virtualized servers regardless of physical location or patch-level;

  • Provides up-to-date protection with no configuration changes and no agent installation on each virtual machine;

  • Eliminates remote threats without blocking legitimate application requests or requiring server reboots; and

  • Delivers appropriate protection for specific applications without requiring any manual tuning.

Honestly I am not surprised that they won it. Why? These are not just merely software vendors or some security firm with loads of patents and little to deliver. These guys come right out of the security mayhem that we all live in.

Congrats folks!

Check out VirtualShield. Not because it won a prize but because it is lot cooler and goes beyond security that you can imagine! It also got recently reviewed here.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
