Provides an easy-to-deploy option for log collection, virtual network IDS and vulnerability scanning, says the company
Solutionary, a managed security services provider, has released ActiveGuard Virtual Appliance, an Open Virtualization Format (OVF) image that organisations of any size and industry can quickly and easily deploy into virtual environments.
The company claims that the new appliance will enable organisations to get the benefits of virtualisation and cloud computing without compromising the business needs for security and compliance.
The ActiveGuard Virtual Appliance provides log and alert event collection, IDS, APT detection and vulnerability scanning to help organizations be secure in virtual environments.
The new offering enables Solutionary to deliver a variety of security services to protect both physical and virtual environments, such as providing in-depth log gathering, and analysis and correlation necessary to prove that access and change management controls are in place and not being compromised within the virtual environment.
Currently, the open source offering supports VMware and Xen, and in future will be expanded to include Microsoft Hyper-V Server.
Unauthorised and privileged user access and configuration changes can be discovered by Solutionary by integrating logs from VMware vCenter, vShield and vSphere and Xen XAPI, Open vSwitch and Xen hypervisor.
Solutionary chief security strategist Don Gray said their customers count on them to be able to meet their visibility, security and compliance needs regardless of implementation details, and the ActiveGuard Virtual Appliance ensures they can do so in a virtualised environment.
