Increasingly, virtualized server technologies are being used to consolidate physical servers and provide data centers with substantial cost, efficiency and service benefits. Though virtualization provides significant operational benefits, it changes the rules of the game for network virtualization and security professionals. Virtualization management must be tied back to security and how changes or events within the virtual environment can impact your data center and your entire business.
Virtualization creates an invisible, dynamic network infrastructure that conventional security products can neither see nor protect. Due to this dynamic nature and cross-functional administration of virtualization, many of the new challenges have management and security implications like server sprawl, server mobility, configuration, performance and infrastructure changes. It is necessary to manage the virtual infrastructure as it relates to security by utilizing the essential tools to enforce business and IT policies.
Unfortunately, many mission critical servers are not leveraging the benefits of virtualization due to the following challenges.
Reflex's virtualization management solution addresses virtualization challenges by dramatically increasing the visibility of an organization's virtual infrastructure to properly manage, control and enforce IT policies, enabling organizations to align virtualization initiatives with overall business objectives. This virtualization management solution is comprised of two major components: the Reflex Virtualization Management Center (VMC) and the Reflex Virtual Security Appliance (VSA).
Reflex Virtualization Management Center (VMC)
Reflex's award-winning Virtualization Management Center (VMC) enables next generation data centers to enforce IT policies, ensure compliance with government mandates, and manage and protect virtual servers, desktops, and networks across multiple platforms. Leveraging Reflex Systems' Virtual Security Appliance (VSA), the VMC is purpose-built on a strong security foundation to provide the essential tools needed to bridge the gap between security and management in the virtualized data centers.
