Live from VMWorld

Posted August 27, 2013    Morey Haber

This time it is all about virtualization and rightfully so. VMWorld 2013 is one of the largest shows I have seen in a long time, focused solely on a single subject and vendors are spread out across the expo floor covering everything from layer 7 switching fabrics for virtualized networks, to high speed SSD caches for virtualization performance. The show floor has been packed since the venue opened Monday and there has been a continuous flow of interest in our latest offering for VMware, the Retina Plugin for vCenter.

This new technology, as we are demonstrating live at booth #343, allows for virtual machine operators and administrators to see vulnerabilities directly within the vSphere Client against all the guests operating in their vCenter infrastructure. This innovative technology breaks down the traditional walls between administrators and security teams. It allows them to make intelligent decisions about their virtual environment by showing security risks directly within vSphere without running separate vulnerability scans and creating reports.

This is something many analysts have been asking for; the breaking down and removal of barriers between teams so that everyone is security and operationally aware. It also extends our current offerings from VMware and allows for the assessment of offline guests, automatic power cycling of images for assessment, and even the vulnerability assessment of VMware ThinApps. The data can be viewed locally, as seen above, or through BeyondTrust’s management platform, Retina CS.

As virtualization has truly reshaped the way we think about our data centers and the cloud, BeyondTrust is creating new technology to address the unique threat they represent to the organization. Scanning a host, creating a report, distributing the results, and waiting for a reply is just too slow for modern virtualized environments. Images can be created and torn down well before traditional processes can even begin to address the risks they represent for the duration of where they live. So, come see this ground breaking technology at our booth or download your own trial of the solution. It will change the way you think of vulnerabilities and your virtual environments; I am certain of it.
