Reflex Security's official announcement on Citrix support

Just got this from Reflex Security's PR:

Atlanta, Ga. – January 28, 2007 – Reflex Security, the leader in integrated network security for data center, core networks, and virtual environments, today announced that Reflex VSA (Virtual Security Appliance) now supports Citrix XenServer. Reflex will be exhibiting at Citrix Summit this week in booth # 412.

Reflex Virtual Security Appliance provides a new layer of security for the virtual environment providing comprehensive intrusion prevention or detection, LAN-based firewall, network access control, IP to ID, and network discovery for traffic inside virtual network. Reflex VSA protects virtual server environments which are subjected to many of the same security threats that physical servers are subjected to. Reflex VSA offers proven technology no only to secure virtual environments but to increase overall security for the entire organization by leveraging the virtualization platform

“We’re pleased to lead the market by adding support for Citrix XenServer virtual machines,” said Hezi Moore, CTO and founder of Reflex Security. “As organizations increasingly adopt virtualization strategies many are realizing that a total security solution for virtual environments is needed. Through integration of network security with the virtual infrastructure, organizations are able to adopt and deploy “defense in depth” best practices without the traditional high costs and complexities associated with physical infrastructure.”

Reflex VSA provides the following security features and security coverage for the virtual network and virtual machines:

  • Visibility and awareness of the virtual environment
  • Security inspection of the virtual network and VM communications
  • Security and segregation among Virtual Machines
  • Access and control for servers and devices that access the virtual network.
  • Security compliance (PCI, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA)

Reflex Security’s architecture provides cohesive, multi-layered protection of virtualized machine resources by addressing the essential security problems faced by CSOs and Network Managers implementing Citrix and VMware virtual servers in production environments.

“We certainly see the need to offer our customers a solid security solution for virtualization and we are starting to see increasing interest in Citrix XenServer from clients that are considering virtual servers,” said Dave Mast, sales and marketing manager of Precision Computer Services, a Reflex partner and Citrix Gold channel partner based in CT. “Customers will be much more likely to implement a virtual server strategy if they know that leaders like Reflex Security are providing security for their environments with a proven solution like VSA.”

Reflex VSA supports VMware and Citrix virtual servers and is available now for purchase and/or a 15-day trial download. Visit for more information.

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…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall

Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy

What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors

I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!

I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run

We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors

we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred

Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
