Well talk to the CEO soon and hear from him what he has to say.
“Two years ago we began consolidating our mission-critical data center servers into virtual environments. Because we manage sensitive employee data for our Fortune 100 enterprise customers, security is always a top priority," said Mike Gioja, CIO, Workstream. "Since the beginning, Third Brigade has been delivering virtualized security to our data centers. This approach enables us to scale while keeping security at the forefront of our customer solutions. In addition, Workstream gains a competitive advantage over the security and virtualization architectures I have seen from other vendors."
When asked why Third Brigade’s approach to virtualization security is better, Wael Mohamed, President and CEO, Third Brigade said, “The biggest threat left exposed by omitting virtual machine-based security or relying solely on virtual security appliances is the potential for one compromised virtual machine to be used to launch an attack against another virtual machine. An appliance or gateway model can’t see, and prevent, the malicious traffic between the VMs; Third Brigade can.” Mr. Mohamed continued, “We also believe sophisticated security coordination will be required between a security agent on a virtual machine and a security agent leveraging the VMsafe APIs, when they are available. We have created an attractive licensing model that will enable customers to take advantage of these advanced features.”
