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.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
