Bluelane to annouce VMwall™ on April 15th 2008!

Here's a snippet of the new two weeks ahead!

These capabilities in the latest release of VirtualShield, enhanced by VMware® VirtualCenter integration, allow Blue Lane’s layer 7 architecture to apply granular application/protocol/port-based policy enforcement on the flows between VMs. The result is the industry’s broadest spectrum of protection for virtualized data centers, including inter-VM protection for VMs residing on the same host. VirtualShield’s accuracy, comprehensive protection and minimal processing requirements make it the first IPS capable of protecting virtualized production data centers from network-based attacks.

Blue Lane’s advanced Layer 7 architecture delivers unprecedented protection and visibility for virtualized infrastructure without the common operational and traffic tradeoffs inherent in traditional deep packet network intrusion prevention systems,” said Allwyn Sequeira, SVP product operations at Blue Lane Technologies. “VirtualShield 4.2 is one giant leap for virtsec.”

Addressing the unique security challenges of the data center, Blue Lane’s VirtualShield 4.2 incorporates:

  • Advanced flow analytics and policy enforcement by cluster, host, VM, data center, OS, application or protocol;
  • VMwall™ - Blue Lane’s Integrated application-aware firewall enforcement by cluster, host, VM, data center, OS, application or protocol;
  • A rich array of inbound/outbound application policy controls for intra-flow policy;
  • Protocol integrity check for aligning ports with appropriate protocols and services; and
  • A vulnerability policy framework to proactively protect VMs from attacks like SQL injections, cross-site scripting and http smuggling.

“As organizations virtualize their data centers, they can design appropriate security into their plans,” commented Jeff Palmer, president and CEO at Blue Lane Technologies. “Blue Lane is the only vendor to offer comprehensive and accurate protection that can scale to meet security requirements as organizations virtualize their servers, based around our ServerShield™ and VirtualShield products.”

Blue Lane VirtualShield 4.2 will be available May 15. Current VirtualShield customers will receive this upgrade as part of their support plan.

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…
