Catbird and Mirantis Partnering to Deliver Next-Generation Security for OpenStack

Catbird, a leader in software-defined security, and Mirantis, the Pure Play OpenStack company, today announced that Catbird’s software-defined security suite is now fully certified for Mirantis OpenStack. Catbird also joined the Mirantis Partner Program.

“As Mirantis continues to gain traction with its OpenStack distribution, clients continue to look for next-generation software-defined security solutions to secure their OpenStack deployments,” said Catbird SVP of Business Development and Products, Chris Tamblyn. “We are excited to be part of the Mirantis partner ecosystem and help customers visualize the virtual assets in their Mirantis OpenStack infrastructure, and enforce security and compliance policies at runtime.”

"We are very happy that Catbird’s innovative security software now is available to our growing Mirantis client base,” said Mirantis VP of Product Management, Ronen Kofman. “Catbird delivers a flexible platform to ensure that all OpenStack assets receive policy-defined protection from inception to retirement. Catbird in effect allows movement of the perimeter inward, protecting each micro-segment defined in OpenStack, while also providing east/west traffic visibility and reporting you cannot get with traditional, perimeter-based security controls."

Catbird’s software suite was designed from the ground up to provide visibility into and protection of private clouds and virtual Data Centers. Catbird Insight automatically and continuously discovers all assets in your virtual fabric, allows the grouping of these assets into logical Catbird TrustZones®, and visualizes asset relationships and the east-west traffic flows between them for improved analytics. Catbird Secure enables automated enforcement of flexible security policies across Catbird TrustZones. The platform detects and alerts on potential security incidents, initiates corrective enforcement actions, and provides instant compliance reporting for major standards and mandates.
