NSOS: Clavister's latest gig at Secure Virtualization



30 September 2008 - IP-based security and unified threat management (UTM) specialist, Clavister has today launched the latest version of its award-winning network security operating system. Clavister CorePlus 9.10 delivers support for virtualization and improved traffic optimization to its UTM security portfolio.

At a time when companies are looking to save money and streamline operations with server consolidation, virtualization is increasingly being adopted. Up until now, security solutions for virtualization have been limited. Companies now have the option to buy Clavister Security Gateways supporting virtualization using VMware ESXi 3 as a virtual appliance or as conventional hardware or software appliances to suit their networks requirements.

The continued growth of enterprise applications such as VoIP, and the addition of them to the network, means that companies are experiencing increased levels of traffic on the network. This introduces new security challenges and can lead to uncontrolled bandwidth consumption. Clavister’s new operating system brings with it a number of features for traffic optimization including gigabit traffic shaping, IDP traffic shaping, route load balancing and SLB server monitoring.

Kurt Glazemakers, VP Engineering of the European Business Unit for Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMRK), a leading global provider of IT infrastructure services, said: “This new release allows us to add state-of-the-art virtual security appliance offerings to our product portfolio, making use of our fully redundant and scalable InfinistructureTM platform.”

Andreas ├ůsander, VP Product Management, Clavister added: “In addition to the green and economic benefits that result from security virtualization, this operating system allows for the management of additional features without increasing workload.”

In addition to traffic management and optimization and support for virtualization CorePlus 9.10 also features:

  • VoIP/SIP enhancements A number of new features gives much more flexibility in terms of network setups, such as SIP proxy placement, SIP extensions and security enhancements.
  • SSL/TLS termination – Supports TLS/SSL termination and the transformation of HTTPS traffic to HTTP traffic, providing the possibility to perform deep content inspection of the traffic. It also offers a single source for managing all certificates for all servers.
  • LDAP authentication – Provides support for direct connectivity between Clavister Security Gateways and LDAP directory services such as Microsoft Active Directory.

CorePlus 9.10 is available through the Clavister Partner Network and via www.clavister.com. Existing customers with an active Clavister Software Maintenance Agreement will be able to upgrade for free.

CorePlus 9.10 is an important upgrade to the core operating system that lies at the heart of Clavister’s product portfolio that can be configured and fine tuned to produce exactly the right level of protection.

Its core offering is the ability to monitor network traffic, protect critical business assets and block undesirable surfing. It also protects against intrusion, viruses, worms, Trojans and denial-of-service attacks; is easily managed and seamlessly scalable and adapts to the needs of any customer from small organisations to large Internet Service Providers, Managed Security Service Providers or multimedia-ready telecom operators.

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
