Blue Lane Announces Protection for VMware ESX Host
Blue Lane Technologies today announced the general availability of VMware Infrastructure 3 hypervisor protection for its version 3.1 ServerShield appliances. The addition of host coverage extends Blue Lanes leadership in data center vulnerability protection to also include hypervisor service console software vulnerabilities.

Blue Lane continues to deliver more server vulnerability protection than any network or host intrusion prevention system vendor, said Allwyn Sequeira, SVP product operations at Blue Lane Technologies. Blue Lanes advanced protocol context aware architecture, combined with comprehensive vulnerability protection across all major data center operating systems and applications, has now been extended to the VMware ESX host. The result is comprehensive and accurate protection of physical and virtual environments with no signatures.

Addressing the unique security challenges of the data center, Blue Lanes ServerShield is the only solution that:

  • Delivers unprecedented accuracy, visibility and availability for servers and hypervisor hosts;
  • Requires no signatures, tuning or code changes on the server or hypervisor;
  • Protects servers and hypervisors from leading evasive attacks, including mutating bots, Layer 2 attacks and SQL injection;
  • Delivers protection for virtual and physical infrastructures without requiring hardware upgrades; and
  • Delivers very high server and hypervisor availability with very low latency.

As organizations virtualize their physical data centers, they need to design appropriate security into their plans, commented Jeff Palmer, president and CEO at Blue Lane Technologies. Blue Lane is the only vendor to offer comprehensive and accurate protection that can scale to meet security requirements as organizations virtualize their servers, based around our ServerShield and VirtualShield products.


Blue Lane ServerShield 3.1 with hypervisor coverage is now available.
