Reflex VSA Furthers Virtual Visibility and Access Control

San Francisco, CA – April 8, 2008 – (RSA Booth # 2732) Reflex Security, the industry leader in virtual security, today announced an initiative to further develop key visibility and access control functionality in its Reflex VSA (Virtual Security Appliance) Solution. Dubbed “VISability”, for the ability to enable Virtual Infrastructure Security, the initiative is the industry’s first to take the approach that without the ability to visualize both the logical and physical elements of a virtual network, comprehensive security cannot be achieved.

Reflex VSA discovers virtual assets and maps them so users can attain a visual view of the virtual infrastructure that is being secured. The new initiative is driving the creation of new functionality that will allow users to drill down into virtualized infrastructure and provide a level of visibility not found in products available today. With the virtual assets fully enumerated in combination with the security controls provided by Reflex VSA, the security administrator has the insight required to understand, monitor and secure the dynamic environment.

“Visibility and security have always gone hand-in-hand, and in today’s regulatory and threat environment, that link is ever more crucial,” said Hezi Moore, CTO of Reflex Security. “Reflex VSA’s ability to expose the virtual network to the security manager and protect it from threats is a proven asset, and the first of its kind in the industry. Our development is building upon VSA’s visibility functionality to add virtual server access control which will invoke permission based controls for users that can add or remove virtual machines and virtual network components.”

Moore added that unlike NAC vendors which generally only focus on the workstation side for access control, Reflex VSA focuses on virtual servers accessing the network and everything around them. This provides a broader view and the ability to stop threats earlier on in the environment.

Reflex Security plans to make the added functionality available this quarter. Existing customers will be eligible to receive a free upgrade to the enhanced version.

Availability
Reflex VSA is available now for purchase and/or a 15-day trial download. Visit http://www.reflexsecurity.com/reflex_vsa.php 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
